2002 A4: litre..light goes..esp and epc lights with car running…

Customer Question
2002 A4 3 litre quattro...
2002 A4 3 litre quattro. Now running in hanging mode not even limp mode! Engine managemnt light goes on - reset then on again, starts flashing and then on come both ESP and EPC lights with car running in limp mode. Engine restarted ESP and EPC lights off and off we go, short time later on come the lights again and back to limp mode. Now only Engine management light on but soon as car reaches the slightest incline it barely crawls along. AMM has been replaced so have three ignition coil packs but no better. Any ideas as Diagnosis tells us nothing is broken.
