    ESP, low tyre pressure MK5 GTI

    So last night driving home from work my ESP and low tyre pressure light came on, solid, stayed on for about a minute then the abs light flashed with a beep or 2. Pulled over turned the ignition off and started again, about 5km down the road it did it again but this time the steering wheel warning flashed on, low pressure and esp stayed on until i got home.

    Today driving to work same thing yet when it happened my fuel range indicator went from 300km range to 80km and stayed at 80 for the drive to work, warning lights went off though.

    I know the simple answer is to run diagnostics but i thought maybe you guys could give a little advice, hoping its not the abs module that ive heard stories about but any ideas ?

    Honestly, dont think about it until it's been scanned.

    If the ESP light flicked up, a good chance there's something MAF related. Which would adversely affect the DTE as it would run default values. That's just me thinking out loud though.

    I cant get the car looked at for a few days, would it be unwise to continue driving it?

    It's a long time after but it turned out to be the ABS pump and module, local euro mechanic could not resolve the issue and the VW dealer ended up setting me back over 3.5k, i noticed that a recall was placed on the ABS unit in march 2017, any ideas how i would go recouping any of my losses ?

    I would ask the dealership nicely to begin with. Should you have any issues then I would go to VW head office. I think your claim should be relatively straightforward nothing in it for them to deny it.
