    I had that problem with my A3 1.6 fsi just as i got it from the garage, it may turn out expensive.

    i was told by the garage it was about £800 to replace the abs module, not sure what it would be like on an S3 though mate.

    I would say that is worth it mate and its alot cheaper than new, and im sure will work just as well, cant go wrong with a lifetime warranty

    No idea, mine was also done under warranty, I know its battery out, probably a guide on here or over on another forum. Apparently it effects alot of cars a quick google search shows how big it is of an issue

    That will be the ATE/Teves MK70 module then - what a load of gash they are.

    Give these guys a shout they can remanufacture these units. Replacement new units will only fail again over time.
