I have a problem with my ESP - to put it simply it's totally dead.
Ever since I have owned the car, it's never worked. It does not cut in when the car slips and spins (no light flashing on the dash either). On top of this, holding down the ESP button to turn it on/off does nothing, and when I start the car the ESP light does not come on in the gauge cluster either. It's as if there is no power going to it at all. The ABS light comes on and the ABS cuts in fine though.
I have checked the ABS/ESP fuse in the fuse box on the drivers side and it was fine. I also checked the fuses on top of the battery as well and they all looked fine. Any thoughts? I did try and see if there were any fault codes with my OBD II reader however it doesn't seem to want to connect to the car (I'm told Mk4s are fussy about generic OBD readers).
52 Plate GT TDI (ASZ). Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
