Hi hoping for some help with my EPS fault, the light came on two weeks ago I took the van to the dealers for a service they had a look at the fault code and said it was a brake pressure sensor fault and wont reset? they then said they need to hook it up to the diagnostics rig for 2 hours @ £75/hour to find out exactly what was causing the fault. After reading the forums here I downloaded VCDS-lite and purchased a lead from ebay, I ran the scan on the ABS tab and heres what it said.
1 Fault Found:
01435 - Brake Pressure Sensor 1 (G201)
012 - Electrical Fault in Circuit
Any ideas where to start?

Thanks for the suggestion Sweety but just got back from CPC and they recon it's a faulty brake pressure sensor located under the master cylinder. £70+vat for the part total including diagnostics and fitting will be £140+vat. I'll take it back tomorrow for fitting. I’ll let you know if it fixes the fault

Check the wiring to the part you changed.

The fault code is saying that there is an electrical fault in the circuit - this is not necessarily a fault in the solenoid itself.
Look up the circuit diagram, and check the circuit is good.
