    Question ESP/ABS Warning Lights Help/Advice

    Guys

    On Saturday my ABS and ESP warning lights decided to come on after travelling approx. 200 metres down the road. I stopped the car, turned the ignition off and re-started and all appeared fine (the two lights went out a few seconds after start-up and stayed off). However yesterday, on my way home from work, they decided to come on again (had no problems on the way to work!) so I did the same stop, ignition off and re-start routine to see if there was any obvious signs of a cause (about 5 times in all over a distance of 16 miles - country roads) which there weren't. Decided to investigate further if still a problem this morning (which of course it wasn't!) and this afternoon all seemed well until 2 miles from home when they suddenly appeared again. Has anyone else had a similar problem and more importantly, is there anyone in the Bournemouth/Ringwood area that could VAG.com a diagnosis in exchange for a few beer tokens?!?

    Cheers in advance

    Richard

    Hi Henry

    Sounds a bit like your brake pedal switch - check your brake lights work, sometimes it's not even the switch but if two or more brake lights are out it can cause the same error.

    I've got a 'hybrid' version of VAGcom, I've only had a week so not had much chance to try it yet, but if thats not it let me know.

    Brake lights checked - all functioning 100% ok! Fancy a guinea-pig for your VAGcom?
