    To disable, I just push the button and ESP light comes on permanently on the dash.

    On a B6 (mine at least) there is no need to press and hold, a simple press will suffice.

    My understanding is that if ESP doesn't work the light will be on to indicate a fault.

    As above with James, BlackQuat, a3tdi2001, some dodgy people out there, couldv'e been fettled to hide a fault, get it plugged in and find out what's gone on I guess..... I've heard of people doing this with ABS and brake warning lights before, more than a bit irresponsible, bloody people.

    Until then a lot of speculation. VCDS / VAGCOM
