Accelerating with the cruise control button, the road must have been a tad slippery. The ASR light came on, power was GONE, ECU light came on too and I had to drift to the side of the road. I could have been nailed in the arse by a semi
The ECU must have been caught in some sort of nested loop but after turning it off and on again everything was A-OK http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif . Programming must be courtesy of MS Windows since the cold boot fixed 'er.
Anyone experience this?

Ouch! I had a similar incident about a week ago with a different result. The car wouldn't start. Turns out that I was out of gas

Not sure if this would apply, but what about relay #109. There was a lot of discussion on Fred's TDI forum about this same situation. I'm not sure if that relay is only for TDI's or for all models.
