    Mine came on when my alternator failed, it drove fine for a bit but I noticed the window wipers were slow and the electric windows were slow, I had to replace in the end, or it could just be your battery. They can check if its the battery or alternator worth getting this done first no point wasting £ on a battery only to find its the alternator.

    It might be that the alternator belt is slipping? Can you adjust the tension on the A3/S3 alternator?
