Whe i turn key the ignition lights come on but when i turn it again to start it the engin dose not turn over you get no sound from under the bonnet

It sounds like your battery is dead. The lights don't take much power to come on, but as soon as you turn the key to start the engine the starter doesn't have enough power to turn over. Take your battery to a Autozone or similar and have the battery load tested and tested for bad cells. You can also check the voltage level of the battery although this isn't a clear indicator of a bad battery unless it is below 12 volts. If it shows around 12 volts, have the battery tested. If the battery checks out, have your starter tested.

How to resit service light on VW passatt 1.8T 2002

Try removing the negative and positive lead on the battery for fifteen seconds. Then, hold the contacts together for 10 seconds and then reinstall them. Next, leave the driver's side door OPEN and turn the ignition switch to ON (but DO NOT start the car) and let it remain there for 30 seconds. This should reset the check engine light.

ESP light

It is indicating a fault with system. A very common fault on tourans is the abs control unit going faulty. Unfortunately the part alone is about £1000. It will be worth having the vehicle checked with a suitable fault code reader, I would expect it to return a 'G201 Brake preasure sender' fault. If so the abs control unti needs replacing..

Most likely you have air in your brake lines. You must bleed the air out of them. Hook small clear tube to brake bleeding nipple, the other end of the tube into a clear container filled with enough brake fluid to cover end of tube. Fill brake fluid reservior. Loosen lock nut and cinch hand tight. Start car, press brake pedal. While someone holds brake pedal depressed, open lock nut. If you are doing it right, you will see brake fluid in the tube. Tighten lock nut. Have person release pedal then press pedal again. Loosen nut and watch for bubbles. Continue pressing pedal and loosening/tightening nut until there are no more bubbles seen in the tube. Also check brake fluid reservior to make sure it is full. As more air is bled out of the brake system, your reservior level will go down. Do rear brakes first then move to front. If it continues to happen, you have a leak in your brake system.

Starting problem

First of all, what type of a mechanic looked at it and diagnosed it as the "computer"? A certified dealer-type technician, or an independent shop mechanic? I ask this because a vehicle's engine ecu is very frequently mis-diagnosed when it may be something as simple as a loose connector. What exactly happens? You crank, the vehicle starts ok, then runs good for a while then dies, or dies right after starting? Does it run rough after you start it? Without further info, I'd say you may have a bad battery. The engine control unit (ecu or "computer") is very touchy, and what happens many times is that your vehicle may crank ok, but while cranking, the voltage will drop too low, and erase the computer's recent memory ( things like throttle position, crankshaft sensor variation, etc.). So when it does fire, it will not idle properly, or sometimes will not run at all. Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeeps are especially susceptible to this. One thing you can do is if it cranks then starts, rev the engine to keep it running, not mash the pedal, but hold it at about 2000-3000 rpm for 10-30 seconds and after that, gently release the pedal, and let idle. if it runs ok after that, drive it to buy a battery. If this is not the case, you may need some more serious electronic diagnosis. Look over the obvious things like your battery cables to ensure they're tight and no corrosion, also follow those cables to the starter/engine/or exterior fuse panel, and make sure the connections are good. I hope this helps. I would definitely get the battery load tested (they do this at autozone for free), and go from there. Good luck.
