    there are a few sensors lateral, longitudinal ,yaw sensors,abs sensors or rings themselves so its best to have it plugged in and scanned for the fault code mate.

    ABS light as well as ESP light can mean the ABS module has failed like whats happened to me, At least £350 to get it rebuilt or over 1k for a new unit if it is the ABS module, Get it scanned to find out ASAP.

    My S3 started doing this about 2 months ago. By checking with vag-com, it turned out to be a dicky ABS sensor. ~£15 from your local motor factors, easy to fit the new one, but getting the old one out can be a bitch. I ended up having to use a hammer and chisel on mine!!!

    Cheers,
