    Hi all I have a 2004 1.8t Quattro, on way back from swimming thought I would just press the ESP button, the light came on, it felt the same so I pressed the button to turn it off, nothing happened, the light stayed on!! So I held it down for awhile and the light stayed on and the engine warning light came on!!

    I turned the car off a few times, but they are both still on! Have I broken it? Is this normal?

    Please help!

    I've never really heard of this before, however often when the ESP/engine light comes on it points towards a problem with the brake light switch. Do your brake lights work ok?

    Cheers for your reply, I will check this when I get home tonight, I decided to come to work on the motorbike today to avoid using it.

    I hoped it was a glitch and would reset itself over night, but both lights were still on this morning!!

    Sat at work now for the next 6 hours worrying like holy hell!!!

    Cheers
