What i get is during normal driving i get ABS, ESP and Level warning lights after about 5 minutes of driving. After about two seconds the ABS and ESP lights go out, the level warning light stays on a few seconds longer. The suspension drops from level 3 to level 2. Car is a March 2004 Audi Allroad 2.5TDI.
I HAVE A 2002 AUDI ALLROAD I JUST CHANG THE FUEL/GAS PUMP AND KNOW MY AIR SUSPENSION IS STUCKKKK ON LOW LOW LEVEL AND THE 4 LEVEL CONTROL LIGHTS DONT COME ON AT ALL PLEASE HELP. MY CAR IS ON THE GROWN THE CAR IS SITING ON THE TIRES. HOW DO I FIX THE LEVEL CONTROL
My 2003 Allroad has the same problem. As soon as I brake hard once, the no ABS, ESP and Level warning lights comes on and stays on until I restart the car. I've had the car for 1.5 years and this problem has been on and off. Whenever I get ready to go to a dealer the problem would disappear on itself for a while. Last time it happened just a few days ago. We had first snow (in Toronto) that day and the roads were very slippery...just when we need ABS and ESP the most..IT WAS NOT WORKING!!! The Allroad was sliding sideways like I was driving the cheapest car ever. I almost rear ended a few cars. The ABS just wouldn't turn on. Last year this car ROCKED during the winter month. I will take it to the repair shop shortly. I hope that its just a brake switch and the repair will not cost me a fortune to fix.
So I brought my 2004 allroad to the dealer today....As soon as I described the problem to the service advisor, he said it's a brake switch that intermittently sends the faulty signal to the computer. Anyway, they replaced the brake switch, part number 1K2-945-511 --NAR. A $6.19 item. So far so good (today only)....no ABS, ESP and Level warning lights....will keep you guys posted.

AWD vehicles likes its tires to be within 1/8 of an inch wear difference. Uneven tires cause problems with the transmission and drivetrain. ESP traction control with its speed sensors etc: could get varying reading with tires of different thread wear.
1) try to use the self diagnose. 2) place ignition swtuch in the start position, the lights coming on 3) engine starts, the brake light sould turn off inmediately. the ABS ligth will illuminate for aprox 6 seconds. 4) test drive the vehicle at speed above 20mph for a few minutes. during the test the both test lights should remain off, if any one of the warninign light utron, take note of the condition. 5) stop the vechicle using the braking pressure.both light should remain offf during the stopping procedure. 60 place the gear selector in to PARK, and observe the warning lights, they should both be off. God bless you
Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support. If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it. The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP 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. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard. I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road. Good Luck!

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
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).
