ABS, ESP, Level warning lights (2004 Allroad TDI)

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 the same problem. Sep 2003 Allroad 2.5 TDI. The car is currently in the Audi Dealer being fixed under the extended warranty (only had the car a week). I was told it is something to do with the engine management and they're replacing an injector. I'll keep you posted.

    I have the same problem with a 2004 Allroad but my lights do not go out unless I turn the car off and restart. Even then the usually return. Did the dealer fix the problem? Mine tend to come on after I brake so I have assumed this was related to the braking system.

    My 2004 2.7T had the same problem yesterday on our way to Yosemite. I stopped the car. Turned off engine, restarted and noticed the autocheck function did not work. Kept on driving until I had to refuel. This time the auto check worked and the warning lights went off. So far, it has happened four times in the past 2 days.

    Under normal conditions, I periodically get the Air Suspension Level, ESP and ABS lights on the dash at the same time. All three lights stay lit. If I turn off the ignition and start the car again, the lights usually stay off. Mine is a 2004 Allroad 2.7T. Anyone have any ideas? Is it in fact the brake light switch?

I had the brake light switch replaced by a local dealer. Cost was $140 and it fixed the problem. Have driven the car for two weeks since and no lights and all systems normal.

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.

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.

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.

The esp light went on first and then the glow plug warning sign on my 2005 TDi passat. said workshop assistance, what is the problem


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!

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

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


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 :)
