I have been gifted an 04 Beetle that we had the transmission rebuilt by a local shop and as part of the process, I installed a new/rebuilt drive axle (Raxles) on the passenger side, and redid the front brakes with new pads and rotors. Now that all that has been completed, when I go out a test spin, the ASR light begins flashing at ~20 mph and the brakes begin trying to adjust for wheel spin which isn't actually happening. Then the light will go off intermittently and then re-engage. I checked both wheel speed sensors with a ohm meter and they read ~1000 ohms which seems to be in range. I brushed off both sensors a little. What or where should I look next?
I can turn off the ASR with the ESP switch and it seems to behave.
As far as the car itself goes, it seems to have a fair amount of torque and seems a little squirrelly when you get into the accelerator...is it safe to assume this is the nature of the car? You may see this post in a few other areas...I wasn't really sure where it fit.
