    As title says I have two dash bored lights that come up at the same time. Could someone please tell me what they mean and what's wrong with my car [​IMG]

    Obviously ignore the handbrake light. What do the 2 yellow ones mean?

    Thanks

    Gav

    The one that says ABS is saying there is a fault with the ABS system.
    and the other one i'm not to sure.

    Got your car manual to hand?


    EDIT:=- The one is ESP I think.
    Also, get VCDS on it and check for codes.

    Dash bored - awesome!

    They are indeed the ABS and ESP lights, meaning there is a fault with the car, most typically brake light switch or abs sensor. Do the brake lights work ok?

    If so then I'd try and get the car scanned to give you a better idea of what's wrong.

    If it's not a rear bulb then it will be the brake switch which is around £20 and 30 min to fit.

    ESP works by controlling the brake circuit in parts, if there is a fault with this then it will turn ESP off too as a failsafe.

    Have you checked to see whether the brake lights are working?

    You open it like a Word document, using a progream called Adobe Acrobat reader usually or just google PDF reader and you will be sorted.

    PM me your email address and I'll send it over.

    I'd get it scanned though before you start changing things at random.
