Customer Question
2002 1.9tdi saloon....

2002 1.9tdi saloon. esp light on and lost all power this morning. Requiring tow home. Diagnostic by breakdown showed all OK??

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Have had very infrequent occurences of power loss before. But have stopped and then restarted after about 20secs. No ESP showing then.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Saloon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not had time to try anything really. Tried battery disconnect this am. Tried disconnecting main lead in EMS?? Inside bonnet, top left adjacent to wipers. Had some water inside footwell drivers side earlier this week. Wondered if that could affect.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Car normally drives very soundly. Great pulling power. Am now hitting the 150k mark.

as previously answered, diagnostic showed up no faults
Audi Mechanic: Audi0405, Technician replied 8 months ago

When you mentioned you lost all power do you mean like electrical power or power where the car would not move when you press on the accelerator ??

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
When depressing the accelerator, the revs are limited at approx. 1100 revs. No loss of electrics.
I can only guess that a sensor somewhere is communicating a fault to the ESP, which in turn is deciding it is not safe to drive, so is restricting power???
Audi Mechanic: Audi0405, Technician replied 8 months ago
Ok if the light was triggered then there has to be a trouble code stored in a module did you check more then just the engine control module ? Like the abs module and the trans module for trouble codes ?
