Question about 2001 Audi A4

1 Answer

Audi A4, ESP light, engine judder

I have a 2001 Audi A4 1.9TDi. My ESP light recently started coming on combined with a jerkiness in the engine. Manual suggested turning ignition off and on, which worked initially, no more. ESP light comes on shortly after car is started, engine judder/jerkiness stays while I drive. Audi have compression tested and suggested that they can only identify that there is a problem in cylinder 3, but cannot pinpoint the problem. They now want to remove the engine head to do further analysis. Best case scenario (they say) is that it will be a gasket. Minimum labour will still cost at least £1,000. Worst case - new engine may be required, cost around £5,000. I am reluctant to commit without more clarity, given that car value in working condition is only going to be around £5,000 in best case scenario. Any advice or further considerations?

How do I switch off my ABS light on my audi a4


I presume you haven't switched off the ESP or anything on the dashboard? Light might be because there is a fault with ABS, so best take to a garage and get them to read off the fault code

My ESP light comes on and off while i am driving AUDI A4 2001 model. Please assist


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I'm after changing my front brake pad on my 03 audi a4 afterward speedometer isn't working and engine check light abs esp light are all on


The speedo not working causes these 3 lights to come on due to the speed of the car needed for the ABS ESP to work . Engine management light is on due to the first 2 lights . Happenned to me last night. Dont know what is up with your speedo . You have to reset the lights after speedo fixing as I am uncertain whether they will reset themselves.
