ESP is one of Audi's traction control features.
Your car was just doing what it was suppose to... Prevent your tires from spinning, and you from sliding all over the road!


EPC is Electronic Power Control. Two very different lights, that cause two completely different headaches!

I hope he knew what it was for. I think his question was why did it stay on. The ESP light is supposed to flash while engaging during traction loss.

A reason it would stay on(if there areNO problems) is when you, yourself, turn the ESP feature off.

The reason is may remain on (if there IS a problem) would be your MAF possibly going bad or other sensors going bad.

I would have someone run codes on a vagcom to see if anything wasstored without throwing a CEL. This might point to a faulty sensor.

One would hope, but it's never safe to assume. Since he said the light turned ON. This made me think ESP was already engaged.
You yourself just said the ESP light stays on when this feature is off... I'm pretty sure this was just due to the inclement weather.
If the "problem" continues then you may wish to look further into it.

*shrugs* C'est la vie

the light FLASHES when ESP is needed to control traction. Its not supposed to stay steady on and remain on unless MAF is unplugged/bad or you turn ESP off by pushing that ESP button above the radio.

My ESP light would come on intermitently about once a week. Restarting would make it go off for several days, then back on again. I found a very light coating of oil from the K&N filter. Cleaned the element in the MAF and all has been well for a month and a half now. May be worth a check.
