    I have a dash warning lamp just to right of top like a car skidding and my book is at home.

    Can anyone help?

    Traction control light ESP, have you pushed the button by accident on the console and turned it off?

    I tried pushing the ESP button a number of times and the light stays ON. I also switched the car on and off many times but nothing turns it off!

    I even tried holding it down for 10 seconds push just in case.....

    I guess I got an expensive issue somewhere. Could this be linked to the noisy 2,500 rpm haldex vibration issue I have?

    get it VCDS scanned and I should think it will be the ABS sensor.

    The haldex problem certainly doesn't sound too clever..

    Not good reading...

    I dont get anything on the DIS just the warning light.

    I think the rear pads are very low - could that be the cause?

    traction/ESP light can be due to hundreds of things, some cheap fixes some not. I had it on mine for a while and turned out to be an ABS sensor which was replaced under warranty thank feck. Best thing to do is have the car scanned as the lads suggested

    Brake sensor wear sensor shows up in the dis.

    Get it scanned, cause atm we're pissing in the wind, as correctly stated could be untold reasons for the light, including a momentary press of the esp button.

    Okay got a scan done by simfin :thumbsup:

    ABS Sensor and AWD Haldex.

    Could an ABS sensor issue cause the 2,500 rpm vibrations in the AWD Haldex?

    Oh dear G201 error is not a good thing.

    Did he clear & then retest after a short test drive?

    He did a clear and retest yes, this is the second logfile. The dash light is still on.

    No short test drive though - is that a problem?

    The other entry in the first log was

    Just be careful not to let the abs module run dry, as it can be a pig to bleed all the air out of them.

    A few years ago I might have tried this but I think its over to the specialists for a quote.

    The car drives fine just no abs I guess, which I can live with. If this sensor is nothing to do with the driving vibration Id rather get that fixed first tbh.

    I used to have Celica that was awful with the abs kicking in all the time so some motorsport place swithced if off and it was great afterwards.

    To finish this thread I took the car to Unit 18 Automotive in Old Wolverton, Milton Keynes and they diagnosed the ABS Pump Sensor and suggested some thicker 90 oil in the diff as there was a little noise from it when the wheels were turned manually.

    Light now extinguished but diff noise still there. I will take it back sometime for further investigations on the noise.
