Hi, I have an audi 80 cabriolet 2.6e 1995. recently i changed all the discs and pads but afterwards i noticed that the abs light comes on which it didnt before with the seriously worn brakes. i noticed afterwards that my brake lights werent working so i changed the bulbs and the light went out for one journey. Now its back on again and my brake lights are both working. Any help considered or location of the abs relay on my car would be appreciated.

when you do the pads you will notice wires coming out of the front hubs clean up the plug ins .. its for the abs if the contacts get dirty your lights come on . start here other wise it can get complicated. do the same at rear i dont know if you have rear disc brakes you may not ??
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.
I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.
You have either a faulty ABS sensor (aka wheelspeed sensor - one at each hub on the car) or your ABS controller is bad. You need to have the car scanned by VAGCom (the Audi diagnostic scan software) - it will tell you which part is failing.
Yes there is a abs sensor on each wheel. You should be able to see the wire's going to it.The sensor itself it easily damaged and will most likely break if you try to remove it so if one faulty you may end up changing both if you change the faulty one first you will only need one but it change the good one as it will probably break removing then you will need both their is no way to check for the faulty one other than try a new one. They can check in the audi workshop but would cost a bit
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.
