Question about 2003 Audi A6

1 Answer

I have a 2004 A6 2.7T S-line (automatic). My ESP

I have a 2004 A6 2.7T S-line (automatic). My ESP and ABS lights are coming on as soon as I release the brakes going from park to forward or park to reverse. Neither of my brake lights are working either.
When I step on the gas, the car feels very sluggish (like the brakes are applied)...then after a few seconds the brakes release and the turbos kick in for normal acceloration. Any insight as to what this could be?

The coolant temp sensor basicly tells the computer whe it's can move into the go mode. WWatch to see if there is a corresponding between the engine temp and the go mode. Good Luck, _Ned_

How do i reset the abs and esp light on an Mercedes e270 chi from 2004


You can reset all lights by disconnecting the negative lead to your battery for about 30 seconds. This will reset them but if the problem is not fixed they will come back on in about 50 miles.

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

Abs light stays on and the esc indicator light also but when you start it it shows it off


the operators guide shows what these mean and what to do.
lost that>? i have one, and 08 JK.
pages 105 to 116
it resets each drive. the opr guide says that, and does.
its a very complex system, you should RTM.

ill quote your missing pages.
ABS:
If the light remains on after start-up or comes on and
stays on at road speeds, it may indicate that the ABS has
detected a malfunction or has become inoperative. The
system reverts to standard non-anti-lock brakes.
ESP:/TCS
The ESP/TCS Indicator Light (located in the instrument
cluster), starts to flash as soon as the tires lose traction
and the ESP system becomes active. The ESP/TCS Indicator
Light also flashes when TCS is active. If the
ESP/TCS Indicator Light begins to flash during acceleration,
ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle
as possible. Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to
the prevailing road conditions


is this clear? if not ask more, questions , more specific and we can peel the onion deep as you want.
also wiki this topic, to understand it ...

Esp light evrey time iam repleace antilock breake system


please re-post, i can not understand that.
I get the ESP light,?
under what conditions?
you replaced the ABS system, nah , i dont believe that. not at all.
what exactly did you replace , name the parts.
ABS controller, ABS modulator, , ABS sensors and tone rings?
did you read the FSM on this?
i bet not.
the 2004 here might help.

the brakes must all be good (1st)
the ABS must be 100% perfect, or the ESP will fail.
ESP uses many system functions to stop skids. including the ABS controls.
to fix this , you need a scanner that can scan all systems on this car.

Both ESP and ABS dash lamps came on suddenly on my 2004 KIA Amanti.


The ESP light will come on whenever the abs light is on, this is due to the ESP system cant operate if the abs system is not working.The first thing you will have to do is scan the computer for codes. the computer will store a code whenever it sees a problem and then turn on the light to warn you theres a problem and then shuts down the abs system, there are many auto part stores that scan check engine lights for free as far as the abs system i am not sure you will have to check. the codes will tell you what part of the system has failed. for example there may be a code like C 1201 left front wheel speed sensor, this code will tell you theres a problem with the left frt sensor, it may be the sensor or the wiring or connector but with a little testing the problem can be repaired. the only thing is the esp and the abs are shut down, the car can still be driven you just wont have the abs. good luck and i hope this is helpful.

ABS and ESP lights on all the time. I bought Audi A4 B6 2004 only two months ago. It started in heavy rain.


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP & ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP & ABS system is faulty. You must access the ESP & ABS 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 (placed in dashboard, under a plastic cover above the ashtray). 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 & ABS ECU, in other words reset the ESP & ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

On my passat ESP warning is coming on. i have changed yaw rate sensor allready and ESP warning light is still coming on. what should i do? its Passat tdi 130, 2004. Thanx


You should have the OBD codes checked. This will determine the exact fault. The ESP light will sometimes come on if there is a problem with the ABS or with the steering angle sensor.
Good luck with this
