Traction control warning light and indicators

My wifes 2002 Golf tdi has just returned from its annual service but with the orange warning light having now come on within the mph dial display which looking up the manual appears to be for the traction control. Also the offside indicators flash very very quickly on the indicator dispaly but do not work when you actually view the indicators themselves. The nearside works just fine. Have the garage done something or is this just coincidence? Many thanks, K.

Airbag light on seat toledo tdi, how do i fix myself


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, SRS and BCM faults) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Alrite mate, there is a warning light on my dash its a warinig triangle with a circle round it, wot could be cuasing this its on a mk4 golf x reg


Not sure from your description but this sounds like your traction warning light (left side of the warning light panel, it looks like a triangle with an arrow going round it in a circle), it normally comes on when you have either turned the traction control off via the button on the dash or if its wet on the road. It can also be caused by cornering too fast.

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)

Hi i had a similar problem with a peugeot 607 it turned out to be a faulty brake light switch that was sometimes not working and so confusing the asr system. It also left no fault code but did activate the asr warning lamp when it was faulty. try checking the brake light switch for an intermittent fault. Hope this helps
