    The traction control/ESP light keeps coming on on my 2000 A3 1.8t:shrug:. I've changed the sensors on both front hubs but the fault is still there.
    My Mrs works for GSF and I've managed to get hold of a VAG code reader but it doesn't tell me where to plug it in.

    If anyone could help that would be great. Also where can I find a list of the codes??

    Thanks

    Google or Ross-tech.com for the codes.

    Have a look in the centre console or on ross-tech sites again for the socket.
