    The ASR problem is a problem with the traction control module or low brake fluid. Since you are in a car wash when this happens, you may have a short that is activated when water is present, and you may need to add some brake fluid. It should stop then.

ASR is a traction control device that keeps the car from spinning its wheels It use the brakes so you should take the car to a shop or an auto parts store that can plug in a diagnostic tool to find the problem and is usually free to do such a check. Could be a bad wheel speed sensor that needs to be replaced.

let me know if you have any further questions

    The short needs to be checked at a shop to see if it is there when it gets wet and to get it fixed.

There are speed sensors located at the wheels. When the car becomes wet if there is a brake at one of the leads from the sensor. It could cause a temporary short in the system causing a temporary malfunction. This should be easily diagnoised with a scanner and a search for past fault codes. Hope this helps

Stabilitrak and ABS lights come on but car is running fine


Nope, but take it in. Brake problems are nothing to fool with They'll probabl tell you it's the ABS ECU. Not a cheap item.. However, it only affects the ABS system, not the brakes itself.

VW BEETLE , ASR LIGHT IS ON , AT SAME TIME THERE SEEMS TO BE A GROANING WHEEL BEARING NOISE AT LOW SPEED , COULD THIS BE CONNECTED ? WHAT IS ASR??


First of all replace bad wheel bearing !!! This bad wheel bearing causes ASR light ON.

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.

tdisline_672.jpg


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.

Volkswagon bora 130 tdi is juddering with asr light coming on and staying on bit like changing gear at low revs but it does go not away unless turn car off and start again or turn asr off before driving...


asr works in conjunction with abs.to stop a wheel it(the car)thinks is loosing grip, from spinning.By applying the brakes to the wheel that is loosing grip,so the car is applying the brake. hence the juddering. if it stops when you turn it (asr)off it must be a sensor fault.easy way is to plug in the diagnostic computer to pinpoint faulty unit. if you dont drive very enthusiastically,then turn asr off until next mot/service.get back if you need any more info ....

Asr problem


MB has ASR,  VW now has ESP.  You posted in Jetta TDI, but say you have a SL600.   Both are slip/traction control programs and both can be manually overridden by dashboard button.  When the ASR or ESP is locked out, the light will be on all the time, maybe you can just push the button?   When driving, if this light flashes on, then ASR/ESP is trying to help get the wheel that is spinning not to.  

If the light came on after replacing parts, or a repair job,  something may be wrong with the parts (non OEM), the service or a sensor may have been damaged.  

Check with dealer for a recall for your vehicle on brake switch ... vw had a recall on these around 2002-2005.
