Ignition Switch / Poor Warm Starting Issue?? with VCDS Scan

I'd say for a couple of weeks now I've noticed the car taking longer to crank over when warm, or sometimes only just firing in time before the battery giving up (bit embarrassing on the garage forecourt).

So finally managed to get to scan the car today. Before scanning the car I thought it would be the usual warm start issues of temp/crank sensor, starter motor, weak battery maybe, as the car didn't seem to struggle when starting from cold.

Scan today:

A quick Google on the net and I'm thinking the Ignition Switch looks like it could be the culprit??

Anyone with any experience with this issue/fault code??

To add to my problems I then tried to start the car to run a scan with the engine running (warm engine) and I now have the ESP warning because the battery lost all it's juice whilst cranking :frown new::frown new:

Any help with this greatly appreciated, as I'm sure like everyone else, I need my car working :blush:

Thanks

Okay, fitted a new battery last Wednesday, and the car hasn't missed a beat since (touch wood).

Successfully erased the fault codes today, so fingers crossed it was all down to a failing battery (that a local tyre & exhaust place told me was fine).

Hi mate i think i had same issues as you long time ago. It was ignition barrel or coil (don't know the right word for it). Had it fixed when the car was in for service. It was replaced and it was about 40£.

Thanks for the response mate.

Sounds like you had the ignition switch replaced, as I think £40 is about the going rate for one.
Hopefully, fingers crossed a new battery has solved my issue.
