    I had same problem on my A4 recently, it turned out to be ABS control module (a common fault). This will only affect abs/asr functions so it will just be like driving a car that doesnt have ABS. I drove mine for several weeks like this, no problems.

    For audi to replace its 1400 i used a comapy in florida Great guys cos 360 dollars for them to repair the unit for life.

    http://www.autoecu.com/

    I sent my unit over continued to drive the car. You will need to separate the pump from the ECU. On the a6 its fiddily but worth the effort.

    collected when i went on holiday. though they will send back via parcel post.

    Also BBreman in the UK but are twice the price than the US.

    Hope this helps
