The ESP light refers to your car's traction control. The loss of power you feel is the car throttling back in an attempt to regain normal traction conditions. This is by design but if you car is flashing ESP under normal driving conditions, you most likely have an ESP sensor problem and should have it checked at the dealer.

My ESP light comes on and off while i am driving AUDI A4 2001 model. Please assist


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.: 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.

What does the esp switch do on a audi a4 1.9 sport estate


The ESP switch turns the electronic stability control program on and off.

The ESP assists in your maintaining control of the vehicle when the vehicle loses or is about to lose adhesion with the road surface from the front, the rear or both ends. The program includes selective braking and brake release to individual wheels.

As you have this handling/control feature, you should not run the vehicle with the ESP turned off as long as it is functioning properly. If there is a fault in the system you will normally get a warning display on the dash.

Warning light on audi a4


This is the indicator for ESP (stability control). If you look on your dash, you'll see a button with, you guessed it, ESP written on it. This allows you to turn your stability control on and off. If your light is on constantly, try pushing the ESP button. If it flashes on and off (ie during hard driving) this simply means it is working.

2002 Audi A4 Esp Light comes on, car turns off when I have to sto


I had the same issue with my '05 A4 1.8T.  Turns out it was the RPM sensor.  Audi tried to tell me it was teh fuel pump and the cam-shaft positioning sensor.  Paid for teh fuel pump replacement and it died 6 blocks from the dealership.  Then they replaced the RPM snesor, works great now... Except it's still an Audi.
