    Hi guys, as the title reads I seem to have a big problem, I hope to god its not the ABS module! To start, my Audi a4 2.0tdi 143 B8 has been sat for the last 5 days and the day before yesterday I just started the engine to turn it over and everything was fine. However tonight I went to take it out for a run and as soon as I started it up, there were errors flashing on the dash, the first error was ESP/ABS Fault, the second error was 'Parking brake malfunction' the third error is 'headlight range control defective'. I don't understand why I am getting these faults all of a sudden as the car has been sat for 5 days and hasn't even moved. I did a scan with VAG-COM and threw up the following errors below:

    I have tried clearing all codes 3 times but every single one returns straight away! Does it sound like it could be an ABS module fault? Has anybody else ever had this problem before? As I say I don't know why I have these faults when the car hasn't even moved!
    I would be very grateful for any advice on this, I'm pulling my hair out!

    Cheers

    I hope it is just a faulty sensor, it seems strange that all of a sudden its faulty when the car hasn't even moved?

    You have abs speed sensor rear right fault up there my guess is that's putting your lights on

    Just had exact thing on my 1 series, traction control, abs, and tyre pressure lights on, found and replaced faulty reluctor ring on the back and been fine since

    The abs is tied into lots of things on the car so If it can't get s signal from one of the wheels then it's gona throw up a fault, lights etc

    Sorry just realised this was an old post but if you have same symptoms then my answer would be the same

    Check battery condition first.In the OP the car had been sat for 5 days,enough for a tired battery to go low on charge.
    often when the battery is low on these cars they throw all sorts of errors

    I had all those when I changed tyres and briefly had different tyres front to rear! Sent the car mental.

    Done anything like that recently?

    If not I would say a wheel speed sensor is faulty!

    Very loosely associated with this thread, I've just had my first "Underinflated Tyre - check tyre pressures" or something like that on my S4, gives you a shock, though so would having a tyre deflate quickly - in my case it was "nothing" - tyre pressure all okay if maybe slightly higher than when set due to higher ambient temperature! Had the same thing with my wife's August 2015 Polo 1.2TSI - when that happened I quickly left the motorway and parked up were/when safe and checked all four tyres, all looked okay, reset TPMS and completed that journey - tyre pressures were, again all okay.

    Edit:- one good thing to come out of this is that I now know that my enabling TPMS on my S4 seems to have worked okay!

    I had the same problem with my audi a4 2010..the fix is simple...
    The problem is a mistake made by audi...near the cimputer box which is under the right wiper there is a drain for rain water or water from carwash...apparently the drain is so near the computer box to the point that when there is too much water like during heavy rains or if the drain is partially blocked by accumulatio of grass or dirty then WATER WILL DEFINATELY ENTER THE COMPUTER BOX.the problem is that water can easily get in..but not easily out..so it will accumulate..this causes short circuit in two relays labbelled 643 in there...and these relays are apparently responsible for esp..parking brake and gearbox transmission...so the intermittent problems with be parking brake failure light.sometimes the rear camera engages while driving because the car thinks u are reversing...and the headlight control range malfunction...and when the problem is prolonged the wires which are connected to these relays ..joined together by compression and insulated will corrode...then the ac fan will start even when the car is off and sometimes the xar will just stall when driving..which happened to me several times in highways at night..which is very dangerous...so fix is open the computer box ..it has got 3 torque screws...remove the mother board by releasing two locks on each side by fingera..then remove the fusebox by unscrewing the earth connection..by number 10 spanner..and from both locks..dry the box of water..remove the insulation where u see many wires connected together ..u will see corrosion
    ...cut them fresh and join them together again..then re insulate them..problem fixed..never waste ur time and money with vag diagnosis..they will just throw many errors in ur face and not telling you to look for water or corroded wires
    .i hope this help someone from unscrupulous audi dealers who may end up replacing the computer mother board..cheees +267 72 99 64 89..text me if this turns useful

    Good afternoon gents.
    First time poster.

    I want to extend a huge thanks to @Dr dre bw, after struggling and having many people look at the car. No one could give us a clear answer. This was the exact issue we had.

    We resolved the issue ourselves without the need of spending more cash.

    Opened up the computer box under the right wiper, took everything apart (Easier than you think), found roughly 500ml of water, some of the wires in the water basically crumbled away, cut them off, soldered everything back, cleaned everything, connected battery again and car was back to 100%, all issues resolved.

    Thank you Dr dre bw.

    Regards.

    Any pictures of where this is? Can it be better water proofed in any way to prevent it from happening?

    My A3 is doing something very similar with ABS and light range warnings. I had a look tonight, do you mean the box is right under the wipers, or the main electrical box alongside the battery?

    HELP PLEASE. My Audi A6 2010 2.7D ‘Le Mans’ is doing exactly the same (handbreak malfunction, headlight range control, ABS fault lights all on, plus air con is playing up). Any help appreciate.

    I suspect heavy rain has got to something but not sure where control box is located? Mobile mechanic has said it is under carpet under front passenger seat! Any help much appreciated. Thanks. Phil

    Somebody will need to figure out where this box is and take some pics. He did say it was directly under the right windscreen wiper. Under the panel that's in front of the windscreen when you lift the bonnet up.

    Early cars had the CCM in that area, it does sound like with experience of that mess up VW Group have moved it or some functions to another location.

    So I have been investigating more focussing on the problem. Ran my vcds and drove the car. the rear right is still giving a very erratic signal all other 3 sensors are reading consistant. I pulled the rear hub apart and th sensor ring looks a right rusty mess, so its going to be a new one and see if that cure the fault.

    He means the ECU. Under the washer fluid reservoir.
    Obviously if water gets in there, it can cause all sorts of electrical issues and send error codes crazy.
    Only a small amount of water will lead to corrosion as it's trapped in there.
    Corrosion will lead to "bad" connections.

    As I posted above, he means the ECU. "Engine Control Unit"
    Its in a sealed (supposedly) plastic box located under the washer fluid reservoir area.
    If the scuttle water drain holes get blocked with leaves, it can flood the ecu box.
    What he is saying is that water finds a way in and then can not get out again causing condensation "damp" inside the ecu box.
    This eventually causes havoc with the ecu.

    The OP has not updated his original post, so we don't know what has happened.
    The other member with a similar story had a cracked abs ring. (nothing to do with ecu)

    Just to clarify, UK RHD ECU is located on the opposite side to the washer fluid reservoir, same side as the steering wheel and easier to access than RHD, where the washer fluid reservoir gets in the way.
