Audi tt esp light stays on


You might have a bad wheel speed sensor or broken wiring. Check them.

Esp light comes on after long journey


Hi there:
The "ESP" system helps correct oversteer and understeer by breaking the inner or outer wheel as needed to get the car back on a straight path. When the light flashes the "ESP" system has detected this condition and has momentarily engaged.


The fault can range anywhere basically from simply a failed brake lamp switch to anything like a failed wheel speed sensor,or brake pressure sensor etc. Check first to make sure you didnt accidently push the ESP on/off button on your dash which would cause this light to come on also. If thats not the case then you will have to have the code or codes read in your ESP control module (computer) to see what code or codes are set to be able to diagnose from here.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I have a 2000 Audi TT Quattro (180). Both my ABS and ESP light were on. I took it to my local garage who replaced a front wheel sensor which eliminated the ABS light. After a 30 mile drive the ESP light...


Check bearing and joint/knuckle on every wheel and even on the drive shafts, if there is lack/knocking, that could cause abs and esp light, because sensor doesnt give right information and ecu only records sensor fault but doesnt say why the infromation is wrong.
They changed the sensor but didnt solve the cause!!!

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.

Audi TT 1.8 petrol 2000. Removing ESP switch on dash, are there any know tips? Regards ****


The ESP light has come on due to a fault with the abs/ traction system . It will req fault code reading by a diagnostic tester to determine the fault more than likely a abs wheel speed sensor.

I have a dodge magnum 2006. Recenly the ABS and esp bas lights have come on and the cruise control does not work. Any thoughts?


When the ABS light goes on, it's likely a speed sensor that has gone bad in one of the wheels. Replacement involves changing the hub that contains the abs wheel speed sensor in many cases.

I have an 03 beetle and my esp and abs lights have come on the breaks seem fine and i haven't kerbed it or anything ?????


the esp and abs lights are on because there is an electrical fault in the abs system. this is not a safety concern and your brakes will function properly however in order for the lights to go off you will need to have it diagnosed with a scan tool. the problem is probably a bad front wheel speed sensor.

2000 Audi TT exclamation mark service light came on. Possible reason?


The light you are referring to is your ESP light. You should have a button above the radio that reads "ESP" Electronic Stability Program is what it stands for.. its your traction control. It is somehow directly tied into the MAF and if the MAF goes it turns off.
ESP, electronic stability control, keeps the car going where
you steer it. You might have a dirty ABS wheel sensor. Not always will the MAF trigger a CEL. But it can and will turn on the ESP light if its not functioning or plugged in. MAF can range from $80-$120 and Is easy to replace yourself. It is right next to the airbox.
