    I'm pretty sure it will be the brake pedal sensor it was the same with both mine and my dads cars hope this helps mate.

    I've had it come on when I had a (massively) under inflated tyre. I guess it read the difference in rotation speeds as slip or spin.

    This could be an ABS wheel sensor fault. Check using VAG com which reads the sensor outputs at low speed. A faulty sensor will be the one reading significantly different than the rest. Alternatively it could be that your steering wheel is off centre. This will cause the ESP light to come on because the steering angle sensor cannot pick up the correct reading. A 4 wheel alignment will usually cure this.

    Had the exact same issue. A quick scan showed a faulty brake pedal switch. £10 from Audi and 5mins to change.

    Either that or the rear brake lights are dead.

    I have had it numerous times. If you get the ESP and the "glow lamps" light on, if you're a diesel, at the same time, that could indicate all the rear brake lights are out or a dodgy connection.
