On my 2000 Audi A4 the anti lock braking system no longer works. I get a solid amber ABS warning light along with a flashing brake light accompanied with three warning tones when I start the car. After much research, this is a common problem on 1998 to 2001 Audi and VW models. I have not heard of any recall, however there should be one. This is a serious problem that will not allow me to brake quickly in all situations especially winter conditions and the cost to get it replaced is far too much.

1. when the ABS is activated during snow or ice conditions. 2. the brakes "stick" and the ABS is not fully deactivated once your foot is off the brake pedal. Often the rear driver side brake is still engaged slightly during driving. When stopped you can smell the rubbing brakes and you can tell the brake is rubbing while driving as it slows down the vehicle. It usually unsticks after several miles of driving or leaving the car sit overnight not running. 3. I've taken the vehicle to the dealer several times over the years, but they tell me that there is nothing wrong with the brakes or ABS system.

Having ABS rebuilt by module masters as Audi wants $$ and any new ABS module they will install will also fail. Center cluster also failed, also known Audi issue.
