Its the ABS ecu which will be the problem, it seems to be a common problem on the Mk5. The dealer will change the whole unit (pump and ecu) There are loads of second hand units around but you need to get the correct part number off the ecu as most of them are 1K0 907 379 ? (? the letter on the end varies a lot and this needs to be exact) Your local garage will fit the unit for you for a fraction of the cost. Won't your 2006 still be under warranty?

How do u remove the esp light which will not go off on vw golf 55reg gt tdi


get the vehicle scanned -- your local auto parts store should have a scanner which you could use for free - they may even do it for you. Find the reaal problem and repair it, or simply reset the codes... if there is a problem and you reset it without repair, the light will return back on after "x" miles..
Best regards

BAS/ ESP light on the dash bord stays on all time the car engine is running


The BAS stands for Brake Assist System, don't remember what ESP stands for.
But the first thing to do is make sure the brake lights go on when you hit the pedal.
If not, then replace the brake light switch above the pedal.
If that is not it, it could be many things, such as a bad lateral acceleration switch.

Have 2006 lincoln zephyr and i have some transmission slippage problems. on occasion when i put the car into drive it will not grab for a few seconds and then when it does it bangs into gear and sometimes...


I own a 2006 Zephyr with similar issues. My dealer reset the transmission which briefly helped but the problem quickly came back. My son is a certified Master Mechanic with Ford but in business for himself. He tested the car and told me the valve body was bad, printed out the TSB's (technical service bulletins) issued by Ford for the 2006 Zephyr, 2007-08 MKZ's and other models equpped with an Aisin transmission. My car was a certified Preowned vehicle and I have the ESP Premium coverage for it. I took the car back to the dealer, who is replacing the valve body, it's being covered by the warranty and the $100.00 deductible is being waived because the valve body should have been replaced the 1st time. The TSB states that if there are no "codes" showing, the car has over 20,000 miles, the valve body should be replaced. It's an expensive repair but Ford is aware of the problem. Contact your dealer, let them know you are aware of the TSB's issued for the car, especially if you have the ESP protection. If not for my son I wouldn't have known. If you need any further info, contact me, I'll be glad to help you. My car has 62,000 miles, I love it and I'm sure glad I found the problem before I hit the 75,000 limit for the warranty.

I have just been told that my VW Golf GT TDi 140 Reg55 needs a new EGR Valve motor. Is this common for this Reg or Golf?


Since exhaust gas (therefore lots of carbon) runs through the EGR it isn't uncommon for them to fail. Sometime a simple cleaning can put them back in service. You'll have to remove the vavle and use a strong cleaner (like carb or brake parts cleaner) to remove the carbon. Clean the valve and the area where the valve bolts to the engine. I've known this to save many people hundreds of dollars in a wasted repair. Good luck.

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)
