    Hi Kendo01,

    You really need this on a diagnostics machine or vagcom, although I have come across similar before, although not to the extent of the engine dying, & this was down to the infamous brake pedal position switch.

    What sounds like is happening is the esp etc is getting 1 signal & the engine another. It is also the brake pedal position switch which stops you over-revving it in neutral or with your foot on the brake, (in this case the revs should come down when you touch the brake, bit of a bugger for left foot braking though<S>).
    I would probably say it's only that, but you really meed it diagnosing to confirm.

    Hope this helps, & although it seems severe, it's probably a 10 sensor/switch at worse.

    Shane, (York)

    It could be the crankshaft sensor.
