    I am about to book in my S3 to get the Haldex checked out, I thought it was my new tyres but I believe there are known issues with pump failure where the car returns to 2WD. I am losing traction quite a bit and seeing the ESP light flash up.

    If you have a failure of this nature and it goes in to 2WD mode do any dash lights come up ?

    When you take the haldex fuse out it brings the traction lights etc on so would say yes,are you sure its not still spinning up a bit because of the slippy surface they have on most news tyres?
