I recently tried the DIY service and repair manuals from a website and it actually helped me repair transmission problem in my jcb 3cx site-master. It would'nt move forward or reverse, engine was good both solenoids for forward and reverse worked, but still couldn't diagnose the problem. I don't have much technical knowledge but I just followed it step-wise, and now it works perfect! covers wiring, codes, diagrams, torque specs, PCV, everything got it from www.reliable-store.com

The first thing to do is have the Airbag system scanned for fault codes. The code will point you to the problem. Have you had any front end damage repaired recently? If so check the wiring and/or the impact sensor. If no codes are found, replace the clock spring under the steering wheel, following all appropriate safety instructions.

You could have something wrong with the computer causing the error message on the scanner. Do this connect scanner and turn key to run don't start vehicle. See if this give you error or code. The backfire is caused by gas getting into exhaust system. You could have a wheel locked up causing the abs light to come on.

Could try disconnecting battery for a few minutes.

And the codes were...?
The ESP gets input from a few sensors - ABS wheel sensors, yaw sensors, MAF...
If the 2.4 has electronic throttle (it should), then there shouldn't be any form of actuation in the footwell, so can't help you with that one.

Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

The lock shift solenoid that works withe break pedal has gone bad... it's located next to or In front of the shifter.. on some vehicles. You have a key slot that you can use another key or small screw driver in it to unlock the shifter. Just replace that and it should be fine..

In back side of the radio, (for Audi A4, A6 - year 1999), you will find a blowed fuse = 10A (red colour). Replace it and that's all. Also:
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for yours Audi Concert radio from the car manufacturer! For Audi Concert the sequence of programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.

You may have a wiring harness problem there, Kjell. Do the door locks work from each individual door? Many vehicles have two fuse boxes - one under the hood and another inside the car somewhere - typically on one side or the other of the dash. Consult your manual. If you don't have one, get one. you need it now, and you will inevitably need it later.
