I have a Audi A3 2.0 tie DSG 2006 and it won’t let me drive over 5 miles an hour and the traction control light flashes?

But if the brake warning light starts flashing it drive with no problem atall?

Anybody else experienced anything like this
Limited to 5mph, that's bizarre for a bkd dsg, does it feel like the brakes are still applied?
Nope no grinding or anything just lack of power really puzzling me
Have you tried driving with MAF disconnected in order to rule it out?
Ideally you would want it scanned by someone as there must be a sensor triggering a fault.
What did you do to lead to this, without some background this isn’t getting to get you anywhere.

And without trying anything it’s not going to fix itself

boost pressure sensor wiring?
Turned out it was faulty rear abs sensors after I unplugged them iv had no fault atall, obviously abs light is on at the moment til new sensors arrive
