The airbag fault light and ABS light have been on ever since I had the vehicle, thinking that it may be a fault by the manufacturer as seeing very common problems in many websites. Another main concerned is the fault of the manufacturer's engine design causing engine damage from oil sludge. My concern is for future prevention measures.

The amber ABS warning light glows while the red brake light blinks. I understand newer Audi models have just been recalled for ABS issues, but my 1998 A4 was not included in the recall. Braking appears normal, and warning light illumination is sporadic.
