ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

SOURCE: My car is a BMW series 1. I have two amber lights

I took a quick look but couldn't find your model but in a BMW you have a "Dynamic Stability Control" which is for controlled driving in bad situations basically. Now like I said I couldn't look up your exact model but look in your vehicle for a button on the dash/radio/instrument cluster. The button you want to find should be marked "DSC" which turns this control on or off manually. You may have hit that button by accident. Push it and it should turn the system back on. If that doesn't work it means you have a problem in the DSC and it is not working. If this is the case unless you are a BMW mechanic, you need to take it to someone who is to take care of it. It's no real danger like the brakes are out but the handling will be limited to what it used to be. That's what both those lights on together mean. I hope this helps and good luck.

I have a audi a4 2.4 2000 avant. a orange light came on . triangle with circle around it and this ! in the middle of it. please help


Yellow circle, with triangle and exclamation mark – The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) dashboard light flashes if the ESP or traction control is activated whilst driving. If ESP or traction control has been switched off, it will light up continuously. If ESP or traction control is not turned off and the warning light illuminates continuously, it indicates a problem and malfunction with either ESP or traction control.

RE: 2002 Volks Jetta


If the circle is not continuous and has an arrowhead at the bottom, it has to do with the stability control system. See the link for a description and meaning. I recommend watching the short video near the bottom of the page.

How to get rid of yellow engine symbol on dashboard?


Will need to have it daignosed by a professional and perform repair that is needed.
The "check engine" light is on because of a problem that the computer has sensed within the sensors of a faulty circuit.

The triangle is on because the problem is also effecting other modules within the vehicle.

Perform diagnostics to determine problem and repair problem..

Its the ESP Light - Electronic Stability System.

If it's always on you should do a diagnosis with a scan tool to see what's the problem. After that i will help you more.
