    Got the fault read with a computer at local garage. it came up with "pressure sensor failure on main cylinder". I believe the sensor is housed in the pump that feeds the main cylinder. Can this be fixed or does it mean I will need a whole new pump ?

How do I fix the ESP dash warning

You would need a scan tool connected to the vehicle to clear the warning but there is no point unless the issue causing the fault light has been rectified. Without the fault being identified correctly and fixed the warning will come back on next time you drive the car.

The Dynamic stability control (ESP/ASR) warning light is displaying, accompanied by an audible signal with a message 'ESP/ASR system faulty. What do i do to correct this fault?

I think you need a deeper code read- only the dealer can get the diagnostic codes to find the specific sensors that might be broken. Should do it for free or a few dollars

Esp warning light problem

If the tires are different sizes, that can cause the light to come on. Other causes are discussed on pages 28 and 173 of the manual:

On a 2001 beetle, What does the triangle light with explanation mark in it mean

ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.

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.

On my passat ESP warning is coming on. i have changed yaw rate sensor allready and ESP warning light is still coming on. what should i do? its Passat tdi 130, 2004. Thanx

You should have the OBD codes checked. This will determine the exact fault. The ESP light will sometimes come on if there is a problem with the ABS or with the steering angle sensor.
Good luck with this
