They had to disconnect the abs in order to change the pads so it set off the abs light. you can just drive for a while and it might go away or you can disconnect the battery for 10 seconds but be careful the car player might ask for the code in order to play it.

If you know the code for the radio... unhook the battery for about ten minutes to reset the abs warning.... if it comes back on after that there may be another issue.... but make sure you have the code for the radio or it will become unusable.

Ive just bought my audi a4 S.E 1.8 petrol 1998.. with 164k...when i bought it the abs lightt was on and also the brake warning indicator light comes on and stays on flashing,and at the same time the abs...


as the mot only says the "brakes work"to a certain efficiency,(the tester does NOT check the depth/thickness of the pads),chances are your pads/discs are in need of replacement.the pads have sensors in them for wear depth, so when checking the pads,front AND rear the abs sensors can be cleaned,and if done by a seat/skoda/vw/audi dealer they can put it on the diagnostic computer to give you a definative answer (this is cheaper than guessing) I replace the pads myself but get the car "diagnosed"when any red light shows.

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.

Changed brake pads and fluid. Brake light/ABS light still lit.


Go back around and check to make sure you didnt accidentally pinch or cut a brake pad sensor. Also the ABS modules on VAG cars are pretty crappy.

Yellow DSC and Brake light on... recently changed brake pads


Abs and dsc are related and with the light on these won't work. It is possible that you need to go back to where the work was done to look this over.

Pads worn down to the break wear pad which sings or vibrates when pads need replacement.
Get new pads, ceramic and if you get the BEST ones, the will replace them FREE, forever ;-)
