The ABS control module fails intermittently causing the ABS brakes to only work when the ABS/brake warning indicator light is off. I have done quite a bit of research online regarding this and have found that this is a common problem with Audi's manufactured between 1996 and 2001.

ABS control module has failed on my 2000 Audi A6. From an internet search this appears to be an almost taken for granted repair/replacement item, I.e.; it happens to almost every vehicle. This is not an inexpensive item to replace (500-1300 dollars including labor). There are thousands of complaints, forums, blogs dedicated to this particular issue. I believe a recall is warranted. Please investigate this issue. Thank you.
