Don't worry about it!
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.

Hmm... Does your Audi have the old version of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System? (I am guessing because it sounds VERY much like the 'icon' display that GM uses for warning the driver that tire pressure is low (or too high). Otherwise, ignore me...

Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!

What does the triangle with the arrow round it mean and what does the triangle with the exclamation mark in mean please


The triangle with the arrow around it is for the wheel speed sensor. The triangle with the exclamation point is for tire pressure. Low tire pressure would set both of these lights off.

When turning left, a yellow warning sign comes on dashboard on my 2000 Audi A4. It has a tringle and circular arrow around it. It flashes, and accelarator turns off. Any ideas what this could be?


The yellow triangle is a warning that a sensor has detected a problem. You might check that all of the fluids are full. especially the oil. Going around corners shift the fluids from one position to another and then the sensor thinks that the fluid is low therefor giving a false reading.

Why does the ABS light come on? and another light with a circular arrow and an exclamation mark in the centre


Lights come on in the dash to warn you of problems with various systems in your car. That ABS light is telling you there is something wrong with your ABS system and the other light is reported to be the transmission control module indicator light. You will have to get the vehicle trouble codes scanned to know for sure what's wrong with the car.

Advice on dash board warning lights on volkswagen passat signal with circular arrow and !


hi this sounds like the DSC dynamic stability control, i have the same light but it has a triangle as well, but i think it does mean the same thing, there should be a switch somewhere either in the center console or round abouts see if it has been accidentally pressed, if not you will have to take it to the VW garage and get it checked out as this helps with the traction of the car if it starts slipping...hope this helps

ALARM LIGHT ON THAT LOOKS LIKE A TRIANGLE WITH ARROW CIRCLING IT. WHAT DOES IT MEAN


On a 1998 3 series (E36) BMW, this indicator lamp is for the ASC+T = automatic stability control plus traction. It should go shortly after the ignition is switched on implying that the system is OK.
If the indicator lamp fails to go out after the engine is started, or comes on in the course of normal vehicle operation it means that the system has malfunctioned. The vehicle remains operational, but without ASC+T. You a have an 2001 3 series (E46), but I suspect the indicator lamp means the same as the E36 3 series. Look in owners manual under "indicator lamps"
