    Help needed Fault code 18265/P1857. NOW FIXED

    I keep getting the traction control warning light coming on. It's been quite random, but has come on 4 times today twice when I've pressed the DIS button on the wiper arm? The car starts to shake slightly too?
    VCDS scan shows DTC 18265 Load Signal Error which comes up in the ABS module. No other fault codes!

    I've done the obvious google search on it & it seems to be a fairly common fault on some VAG cars. Seems to usually be caused by a broken wire on the Alternator sense cable that goes to the top of the gearbox.
    Tried to have a look & a feel round on the top of the gearbox & yes there is a cable going from the Alternator to the Gearbox, but it's difficult to see how it terminates on the Gearbox. Easy to see it on a transverse VAG car, but not so easy on the A4.
    Has anyone on here had this problem on an Audi.

    It started throwing code 17669 too. So I replaced the injector harness yesterday, & just did a 300 mile trip today without issues.
