    Here you go Chebz.

    http://www.audi.co.uk/new-cars/a3/new-a3/safety/electronic-safety.html

    ESP keeps you pointing in the right direction

    Audi’s electronic stability program (ESP), found on the A3, is a combination of advanced technologies that helps keep the car under control in more extreme situations such as when you need to avoid an unexpected obstacle in the road. ESP is especially helpful in adverse weather conditions.


    When you need to turn quickly and sharply, ESP identifies your intended direction and responds by applying the brakes to individual wheels.

    Brake disc wiping – keeping your brakes dry

    In the wet, ESP also dries the brake discs by intermittently applying the brake pads lightly. You and your passengers won’t notice but, compared with conventional braking systems, your stopping distances on wet roads will be considerably shortened.

    It was an optional extra for the first batch of S3's, and the guy that purchased my example knew it would get in the way! :racer:

    It is a nuisance on most mapped cars. I used to hate it cutting the power at any hint of throttle.

    I'm obviously not driving mine hard enough yet as never has ESP flash me a friendly warning. Perhaps I need to go out and play with some roundabouts?!

    Just got in from a housewarming party and I'm a little bit tiddly, but it has been a very funny evening. Going down in the history books this one I think! My taxi for the evening was a 1986 Mini - also great fun. Off to bed with my pint of Ribena now & praying to the hangover fairies tonight to work their magic & keep me safe from the death like feeling I'm a anticipating in the morning!

    Night all x

    Just woke up. Feel like I've been in a car crash as my shoulders hurt so much from yesterday's workout! Lazy weekend for me.

    It's not repeatable on a public forum...

    And I like the beach, especially when my uncle comes along with his speed boat. Yay. And yeah, we can only manage a few hours with kids anyway before one of them gets a face full of sand and then cries for hours ha.

    Morning all! The fairies worked their magic (as did the sausage & egg mcmuffin!) so feeling good here. May need a nap this afternoon though... Lol.

    Quiet weekend ahead which will be amazing - it's been a very busy week.

    BTW crazy I've just been recapping my memory on disabling ESP in VCDS. You edit the code on the ABS module so in theory anyone with abs and esp should be able to disable ESP.

    Awesome! Cheers mate. I'll look at it when I get a moment to plug the car in. I've not even had the light come on yet though, but then I've hardly driven it. Does it even have esp? As chez said, it's fairly damn old!

    Check for the existence of an ESP button on your dash. Maybe you don't have it and won't have to worry about disabling it.

    Sweet. That code worked ok then?

    On that link I sent you it tells you what codes disable other parts of the traction control.
