    Have you replaced the longitudinal acceleration sensor? It's about £110 dealer only part unless you can get one from a scrapper.

    That is the problem, you can see what the sensors reading when stationary, if its reading a silly number the its goosed, should be +/-0.5ms.

    I'd check the wiring and plugs to it first. I discovered on my car that it was in fact behind the glovebox and the lateral one is behind steering column, id been told the other way round. I found out by unplugging one and seeing which reading on vagcom went blank.

    I'm having the very same issue with mine, i only have a cheap ebay code reader and the only code that came up on the abs was 01279, the booklet with the reader did'nt have this code listed so searching on here brought me to this thread,

    This is a huge concern to me as the other day i had NO fault lights on the dash and had to brake hard to avoid a child running into the road, my abs kicked in then totaly failed leaving me with a solid foot pedal and NO braking effort then the abs cut in then back out.

    after i had collected my thoughts after missing the kid i pulled the ABS fuse but im none the wiser to the fault that caused this to happen

    can anyone help?
