I have an 02 A4 1.9 tdi, on friday while driving to work the traction control light and ABS lights came on. I pulled over and switched the engine off and back on and both lights went out. I was driving again today (Sunday) and again both warning lights came on but this time they are staying on and come on every time I start the engine, I suspect it might be brake pads, however if anyone could shed some light on the problem I would appreciate it.

Its not brake pads. They have their own light. You need to get it scanned.

I had the same, change it (11 euro ish in stealers) and itll go for ever. Its a very common problem in these cars. Just to be sure, reverse against a wall in the dark and see if the brake lights are working while the 2 lights are on
Had that problem only a few months back changed the brake light switch and that sorted the problem, thought it was the same problem again cropping up but all brake lights are working fine. Thanks for the reply anyway.
