Question about 2002 Audi TT
My alternator warning came on shortly followed by the ABS & stabilization system (triangular symbol) warnings. Is the problem likely the alternator or one of the other systems? Thanks!
Probably alternator. Low voltage or alternator/electrical problems will cause other lights to come on.

I had the brake light switch replaced by a local dealer. Cost was $140 and it fixed the problem. Have driven the car for two weeks since and no lights and all systems normal.

Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. ANTILOCK systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit. One or both warning lights may also come on while driving, also indicating a problem. If just the ANTILOCK warning light comes on, some ABS component has failed, but the car still has hydraulic brakes. The grinding noise could the the ABS pump or your brake pads could to worn to the metal backing and grinding against the brake rotors. I recommend a inspection soon for your safety.

A vehicle's Emission Control Light is a generalized indicator that there is fault or possible malfunction in the vehicle's operating system. In some cases, these warning lights will come on if a gas cap is not fully closed. It could any one of a number of sensors such as the o2 sensor or map sensor. The thing to do is have a reputable mechanic/technician run a diagnostics test on the vehicle.

No I am a mechanic at Audi. The problem is that the the air flow to the central tappets may be causing the air flow sensor to trip and that is why. Try putting a small amount of WD40 into the petrol and that will work, its a very common problem.

SOURCE: mk1 A4 ABS warning light
I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.
