    I think thats the fluid warning.Does it stay on or do you have the three bells when starting which is an electrical fault if the fluid is ok.

    I get the 3 bells and it keeps blinking, what sort of electric problem could it be? Would it be the sensors on the pads?

    Abs sensor or abs module. You will need to get it on vag-com and see what it says.

    If it is the ABS ECU (quite common) you can get it repaired which will cost around 200 from someone like BBA-Reman. There are repair services on ebay which may be cheaper. (A new one is over 1000 when I last checked)

    Its not too difficult to take the ecu off yourself and send it off for repair. If you do a search on here or audiworld there are articles on how to do this.
