    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    That light will probaly mean the ESP combination yaw/acceleration sensor is faulty, it is a common problem. These sensors are 750.98... They MUST be set up using a diagnostic system after being changed and this will NOT be anything to do with your starting problem. Do as Keith says and get a full vehicle code read done and make sure you get a printed result.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    It depends on the error codes.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    I have 28 error codes for Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) Sensor Unit (G419) an 4 for Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP)/Traction Control System (TCS)
