    ABS WARNING LIGHTS??

    Hi All

    Sometimes the abs and traction control warning lights come on on my car, it has a mind of its own when it comes on but turns back off when I turn off and back on the ignition.

    It is readingy abs fault 1 , I have replaced the brake pedal switch which did not cure the problem. The mechanic feel it is either the abs thrust switch or the abs pump. Any Ideas?

    Car is a 2003 Quattro TDI 2.5 and an auto.

    Check your ECU box doesn't have water in it. Mines's had it twice and it's caused all manner of mayhem. The following article is goo reading - Plenum Chamber Drain Grommets - Every A4 B6 owner is affected by this common fault

    Neither both good, yesterday when the lights came on I had to break hard and the abs did not work , the front locked up so whatever is happening when the lights come on together the abs is being turned off. Any Ideas>

    if the lights on then you have a intermittant fault probably have a dodgy wheel hub sensor, mine comes on at least once every few months usually when a bit wet like you say turn off ignition and restart and lights goes off again !!! mine is a dodgy wheel hub sensor....
    if the light's showing then the abs should be disabled.... same as the air bag light if its on they dont work
    A4 TDI 130 SPORT..
    now sold but still in the family, gone back in time to the cupra R again..
