    hey all got my first fault on my audi today

    I was having a nice steady drive home from work
    and i pulled over to run into the shop
    as i left the abs started making a noise
    then the noise stopped and the ABS light came on
    it wont go off

    so i left the car for 20minutes or so fired it back up
    great no light came on drove maybe 100yards
    light comes back on

    daft question but would having a warped disc make the light come on as
    it shakes a bit when i brake??

    I've checked the 3 fuses on top of the battery look fine I replaced them anyway lights still on
    Though I really need to get the car plugged in

    Mine did exactly this and the 3 30A fuses on the battery were the culprit. They didn't look too bad but had obviously got hot, cleaning up the contacts and replacing the worst (I only had 1 spare) cured it. Also cured my oil sensor fault for a little while, but thats re-occured so I'm guessing is one of the fuses I didn't change.

    Really depends on your fault code though, mine was showing "01276 - ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64), 16-10 - Signal Outside Specifications - Intermittent" and I think is the only ABS fault that can potentially be fixed with that simple trick - get your car scanned!

    Fingers crossed I've fixed it got the car plugged in at a friends passenger side rear speed sensor came up
    So I have replaced it drove up the road light went out

    What a chew on to replace it i ended up removing the brakes and hammering it out that way it was stuck solid
    Never fitted one before 10minute job now I know how
