    alrite lads

    linked my 99 A3 quattro to a vag machine, coming up with a fault code of 1279

    any ideas what it is?

    im having ABS issues, i was pointed in the direction of the longitudinal sensor, replaced that still doing the same (granted it was a 2nd hand one tho)

    but i dont want to go buy a £120 brand new one if its not even that that is causing the fault, i've been chasing my tail on this one for about a year now and getting now where, know one seems to know anything about it or be able to help me with it.

    The fault code is actually 01279 and information on it can be found in the Ross-Tech Wiki
