Hi I have a 06 mkv R32 just done 50000 miles I've had it 2 years and had no major faults. I went out in the car today and the ESP light was on so I tried to switch it off at the switch but it just stayed on. The light is still on any1 got any ideas of what would be the cause of this?
Thanks sean

As above get it scanned as it could be a number of things.

In my case, I had the same symptom and it was the Haldex ECU. It started off intermittent and would go off the next time I started the car and work normally. Eventually it just stayed on.

There is also a common issue on MK5 Golfs with the Brake Pressure Sensor (G201) sensor within the ABS pump, which has the same symptom. VW have been known to fix this issue on a goodwill basis out of warranty. It's been a big issue on MK5 Golfs but less so on the R32.

It could simply be a faulty wheel speedsensor.

Only a scan will tell.
