    Run a VAG-COM scan for fault codes and then run the ABS diagnostic test, that will most probably narrow it down, could well be a duff sensor or ABS pump issue. But VAG-COM your first point of call

    I had this... speed sensor wire had just come off, fouled on the wheel and rubbed through. Repaired and reset with VAG-COM, no biggie... just pull the fuse out in the mean time, so embarrassing when pulling out of the pub car park etc.
