    Since buying the car in 2008, no faults until earlier last week where, on braking a touch harder than normal the ESP/ASR lamp lit up now and again ('tho disappeared on turning the engine off then back on). This continued for a couple of days until late last Friday night where, on starting up, the amber Engine Management System lamp remained on. I subsequently drove the 10 miles back home, during which the engine performed absolutely fine with no problems (the EMS lamp still lit). Subsequently, I'd appreciate if there's anyone in Barnsley/South Yorkshire with Genuine VCDS/VAG-COM that could help out. If not, it'll have to be a call to the main dealer this week ...

    Many thanks in advance.

    PS - tokens of appreciation will happily be offered, given the main dealer would be lightening my wallet anyways.

    Replaced CTS - temp' guage when running now shows the obligatory 90°C instead of the 60°C of the previous few weeks. Also replaced the brake light switch - sure enough the original one had failed (had had some kind of fluid leak).

    Spot on bez101 - many thanks once again. Couldn't have gotten better help - as NHN said 'you wont go wrong with Bez [​IMG]'
