    Abs fault?

    Hi guys just had the vag com put on my 2007 s3 as my esp light come up on the dash saying ESP fault

    the codes that came up where

    brake pressure sensor (g201)
    abs control module 01316

    i can see this is going to be an expensive fix

    I had that problem with my A3 1.6 fsi just as i got it from the garage, it may turn out expensive.

    i was told by the garage it was about £800 to replace the abs module, not sure what it would be like on an S3 though mate.

    I would say that is worth it mate and its alot cheaper than new, and im sure will work just as well, cant go wrong with a lifetime warranty

    Have you tried to test whether the G201 sensor itself is faulty? I think there's a good amount of info on the ABS system for testing and calibration that you could try before taking the hit...

    Try this but just check that you use the guide for the controller version your car has installed:

    No idea, mine was also done under warranty, I know its battery out, probably a guide on here or over on another forum. Apparently it effects alot of cars a quick google search shows how big it is of an issue

    That will be the ATE/Teves MK70 module then - what a load of gash they are.

    Give these guys a shout they can remanufacture these units. Replacement new units will only fail again over time.
