traction / ABS light coming on after 10 mins.


Registered User

my audi a3 1.9 tdi 130bhp.

from starting the car i would say 8 minuets exactly could be 10 mins the abs / traction control light comes on and stays on until you tun the engine off.
when i start the car back up its the same process exactly after 8 or 10 mins ( i could do with a stopwatch )

this has only occured since having cruise control fitted.
i have took the car back to where the cruise was fitted and it was put on the diagnostics to find a fault " load signal from alternator "

the fault was cleared but it keeps popping back up.
im looking for information on this please if anyone has had the same problem etc .....

i dont want to go out and spend nearly £200 on a alternator if this isnt the problem as my alternator doesnt look that old.

hope someone can help
