    Hi all

    I have an ESP/ABS fault (both lights come on and stay on until ignition is turned off), I recently plugged the car into my m8s VAGCOM
    It came back with error code 04FF – a longitudinal acceleration sensor.
    I've tried doing a search but nothing matched.
    I was just wondering if anybody knows anything about this sensor, or have come across this problem in the past, wouldn’t mind knowing what kind of damage I’m looking at
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don’t even know where it is /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif

    Cheers BD

    Hi m8

    Had the same lights on recently but fortunatly it was a brake sensor and cost about £6. When i was investigating the problem i came accross the longitudinal sensor and i think they are quite expensive. For some reason £700 rings a bell hope im wrong. Not sure where they are located.

    I feel sick all of a sudden /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif, lol

    Thanks guys, first I just need to find where the sensor is hidden so I can test them with a multimeter, don't fancy going to a dealers, so they can have my pants down, just yet.

    I’m told there are 2 of these sensors.
