    Battery Fault? Help needed

    Evening guys.

    Just gone to start my car (audi a3 2.0 TDI) and it wouldnt start and was clicking loads, then it came up on the panel "battery level low" so i took battery cover off and looked at the indicator and that shows as clear so means i need a new battery but, it is also coming up with ESP fault see manual and power steering is heavy but is that because of the low battery?

    Thanks

    Grab a new battery from Eurocarparts or such, get a higher power batt than standard too. I replaced mine not long ago to a Bosch S5 - same symptoms as you.

    They have a offer on this weekend so click and collect might be the way to play.
