Check the oil sending unit for leaks.

Check the valve cover gasket for leaks that trigged down to the oil sending unit.


Oil sending send intermittent ZERO or low PSI data to the computer ECU.

It will triggle OBDII error code.

When you get a solid light the pull the code on reply.


Check for oil leak around the engine.

I have a audi 2002 A6-c5 2.4 v6, the car has an intermitent problem with the ESP, Sometimes the light flashes & sometimes the light stays on, when this happens for a split second I hear a actuating...

And the codes were...?
The ESP gets input from a few sensors - ABS wheel sensors, yaw sensors, MAF...
If the 2.4 has electronic throttle (it should), then there shouldn't be any form of actuation in the footwell, so can't help you with that one.

It is very possible that the abs pump is faulty. As a mechanic myself, I recommend taking it to a dealer.

Oil Pressure Light and Beep Alarm after 5 or 10 MPH

On the Brakes, take each wheel off in turn, and check each wheel HUB in turn to ensure there is no break or chafe on the exposed cable, or that a plug in has not disconnected.
At the same time check that each HUB exciter ring for ABS sensor is clean and not broken/missing.
Then check that each ABS sensor which is located on each back mount, is clean and air gap set at approx. minimum of .010 inch [10 thous. of an inch] between the "nose" of the sensor and the exciter ring on the HUB.
I would need to know about the OIL pressure problem.
Is it the LOW OIL pressure lamp that was glowing continuously, or the Pressure Gauge reading that is "acting up"?

Break light and anti-brake comes on sometimes on My 1999 Audi A6

This is common in the audi cars. It may be that your ABS module is failing or the the connector to the ABS pump located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, with black metal lines going into it. Their is a large black connector that sometimes needs to be unplugged and cleaned and plugged back in
