    Good Morning all

    I am after some help urgently....

    The above fault code has appeared, When I am driving along the ESP light comes on the dash and the car starts to judder and lose power. I have to turn the car off and on a couple of times for the light to go off.

    I have had a look on the internet for solutions but I have not come across any.

    Can anyone help and let me know what's causing this?

    Thanks

    Dan

    Thanks for the replies, I am confused why the AFM would flag up a ESP light?

    Abs ECU needs a load signal for the esp, this is taken from the engine air mass meter.

    it will be one of the two suggestions above
    i changed the wiring harness in the wives a3 130 sport and this cured the problem
    new harnesses from dealers are around 70-80 quid

    I would love to know if you found the source of this fault, I have the same fault code and symptoms, I had 2 injectors replaced, swapped out the injector wiring harness and MAF sensor with used parts, but bloody light still comes on every few hundred yards! I'm just about out of patience and money. Any help appreciated
