Volkswagen (VW) Touran Common ABS (ESP) Fault – Brake Pressure Sender / Sensor Switch Failure

Contact UsExchange Units Kept In StockThe Volkswagen (VW) Touran has many common failures and unfortunately they’re not quick easy fixes either. The most common failures that we are seeing on a weekly basis are:

  • ABS Pump (ESP – Brake Pressure Sensor Fault)
  • Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF Blocked)

For DPF faults the best solution is to have the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) completely removed. For more information on this, check out our dedicated DPF Removals article.

The ABS Pump fitted to later models of the Volkswagen (VW) Touran is a MK60 ATE (Teves) pump. They are mounted in the engine bay (nearside, behind the battery tray & against the suspension turret). The problem with these MK60 ATE (Teves) pumps is that ATE decided that for space-saving, it would be a good idea to have the conventional brake pressure sensor fitted internally, which is normally mounted externally to the pump closer to the brake servo. It is very rare for a brake pressure sensor to fail on conventional systems, however, these new MK60 ATE pumps are failing rapidly and we’re currently seeing 10 or so units coming in for repairs & modifications on a daily basis.

Common Symptoms Of ESP (Brake Pressure Sensor) Faults

Below you’ll see a list of the most common symptoms which suggest you have the ESP fault relating to a failure of the Brake Pressure Sensor / Sender Switch. You may have all the symptoms or even just one.

  • ESP light on dash
  • Traction light on dash
  • ABS light on dash
  • ESP button illuminated & won’t go out
  • Fault Codes: G201 and/or 01435

What Do We Do?

Unlike other companies who will simply repair the pump using a like-for-like brake pressure sensor and simply replace the damaged parts. We carry out a full test on the unit and during the repairs, we modify these pumps to meet & exceed the OE specification and ensure that the manufacturing defective part is eradicated from the current pump design. Functionality will remain the same and no modifications will be required during fitting.

Volkswagen (VW) Touran 1T1 ATE Brake Pressure Sensor Switch ABS FaultOther Companies Do The Same Thing

No, as far as we are aware we are the only company in the whole of Europe that offer this specialist modification. There have been rumours of people and/or companies trying to repair these units and in some cases imitate our work. Please understand that although the ESP system is not absolutely crucial, modifying the ABS controller/pump in any way (without superior extensive knowledge) in the technology of advanced braking systems and electronic control modules, you will be risking the life of others. Please do not attempt to repair these units yourself and please do not offer such services to trade or the general public. We have been in business since 1972 as a group company and all our parts, services are fully tested before leaving the workshop. All units are thoroughly tested on specific specialist equipment to ensure maximum quality. Our ESP Fault Modifications come fully approved and as far as we’re aware, there is no other company out there that can successfully repair these units and completely remove the defective state.

Can You Offer A Replacement Off The Shelf?

Due to the very common failure of these units, we now carry these ABS units with the external modification in stock. To see if we’ve got the part matching your vehicle, give us a call on 0871 2887 666 or email us with the part number from your ABS pump. The part number you’re looking for will be located on a sticker on the pump and it will start with 1KO for example: 1KO614517M (The M may be either 1 or 2 letters and can vary). We need that part number from your unit to verify if we’ve got one in stock. If we haven’t, then we can always work on your own unit and carry out the repairs & modifications on your unit.

The most common part numbers found on the Volkswagen (VW) Touran MK60 ATE (Teves) ABS Pumps are:

  • 1KO614517AA
  • 1KO614517AB
  • 1KO614517AC
  • 1KO614517AE
  • 1KO614517AF
  • 1KO614517B
  • 1KO614517H
  • 1KO614517M
  • 1KO614517T

Can I Fit The ABS Pump Myself?

Although it’s not the hardest of jobs, we do advise that you have a professional & qualified mechanic fit the ABS pump. After all, it is directly associated with the braking system and so it is for your own and others safety that the ABS pump is fitted correctly to ensure the braking system works correctly as it should. After re-fitting this part, you will need to bleed all four brake callipers and the ABS pump will also require bleeding. We do offer a very competitive fitting service and can guarantee to beat all quotes (with programming & recalibration inclusive). For an instant quote, call us on 0871 2887 666.

Fixing Common ESP Faults On Volkswagen (VW) TouranWill I Need To Have It Re-Programmed?

Yes, 9/10 times the ABS pump will need reprogramming and have all associated sensors (wheel speed sensor, steering angle sensor, brake pressure sensor & lateral acceleration sensor etc) will all need to be recalibrated. This can be done using a VAGCOM diagnostics system. Not all mechanics have access to this and so they may need to call a 3rd party auto-electrician in to do this, we do offer full step-by-step instructions for the programming & recalibration of the unit.

UPDATE – Our latest on the shelf units will NOT require programming and are fully self-calibrating!

Can Sinspeed Fit This Part For Me?

  • Hi I have a VW Touran 1.6 TDI Reg jan 2011 with the Symptoms of a failed abs / esp unit as your Description above. would you be able to repair this for me under your fitting service, and how much would this cost.

    • Hi Peter

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      I don’t think this will be the Brake Pressure Sensor fault because normally that will just cause the ESP light to be illuminated on the dash, not the ABS light as well. However, we’ve sent you an email with full pricing and information for testing and repairing the ABS unit if it is faulty.

      Kind Regards
