Well I still havnt got to the bottom of the alarm problem, bur when out today, after braking ny ABS and ESP light came on. Turned off the engine, back on again and they have gone, but came back very shortly after.
The Light for the diesel preheaters then cam on and started flashing, followed 5 minutes later by the Brake warning light flashing.
Now I now its a bit earlier for the Blackpool Illuminations but from doing a search I suspect that it could be an ABS sensor fault.
Can anyone post me up a picture of the location of this item or offer any advice. We are up to about 21-22 A6 owners now arent we!!!!
by the way its and A6 1.9tdi avant on a 02 Plate
