    To disable, I just push the button and ESP light comes on permanently on the dash.

    On a B6 (mine at least) there is no need to press and hold, a simple press will suffice.

    when you turn the esp off and you get the light on the dash
    you will have to press it again when you restart the car it auto turns on next time u start up
    i never turn it of on standard cars only when they been mapped or in snow

    My understanding is that if ESP doesn't work the light will be on to indicate a fault.

    As above with James, BlackQuat, a3tdi2001, some dodgy people out there, couldv'e been fettled to hide a fault, get it plugged in and find out what's gone on I guess..... I've heard of people doing this with ABS and brake warning lights before, more than a bit irresponsible, bloody people.

    Until then a lot of speculation. VCDS / VAGCOM
