Brakes problem
2001 Audi Quattro 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

Intermittently, ABS BRAKE warning light comes on, flashes for a few seconds to a few minutes, then goes off. The braking ability of the car does not seem to be affected but I am worried about the warning.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

It may have stored a code go by Auto Zone see if they can read then post. Maybe a wheel sensor do you live in ice, snow area?

Yes, this is a very icy snowy winter, up my way. I will go to an auto place and see if there is a diagnostic notice about the abs system.

Thanks

My Audi does the same thing. I live in Canada, and everytime there is black ice, snow or it is slippery, when breaking the ABS senser light flashes when it comes in action.

It is supposed to be normal. Then they disappear when you stop sliding.

I have an A4 2003 Quattro 1.8T
