SOURCE: abs brake problem
I found my solution on the web a few years ago. My 2002 RVS had permanent ABS lights and no ABS.
It was suggested to check the ABS electrical connections at the brake disks . There are quick connects there and I found a corroded connector on the front passenger side. My wife started the RVS and put it in gear. With the brake pedal pressed, I wiggled the connectors and the ABS light went "off and on" right away. I replaced the connector and it never happened again. It is likely 4 years ago.
Worth a try.

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 :)
