when the lights came on and started beeping it was raining and very wet, now
this as not happened since i am gonna get the breaks looked asap but would
wet and dry conditions make any difference . i was think it was more to do
with te traction control but then again my mecanical knowledge is not very
good. also the shield underneath the car as come away 2 days prior whilst
driving on the motorway shook me up a bit as it went BANG and bits of
plastic went everywere i wonder if that as caused some damage??
All of the safety assist functions - anti-lock brakes, traction control, yaw
recovery - and on some models, "low tire pressure" warnings - rely on the
wheel speed sensors. If any one of them is malfunctioning, you can expect a
whole lot of upset electronics to give you a wake-up call.
If the wiring to a sensor has been damaged - like broached insulation - it
could exhibit symptoms that vary with moisture. But speculation isn't going to
fix the car. Have the codes dumped and go from there...

Is it still coming on?
Just after I bought my 2003 Audi my ASR light came on during a very
wet journey 5 mths ago, restarting the car got rid of it until I next
I did this four times with the same result, I was resigned to a trip
to the garage. But the problem disappeared before I could book it
in. 5 mths, 5000 miles later, some of them far wetter than the day
when the problem occured and no problem. <fingers crossed>
