    Hi Sometimes in my 2001 Passat I get this phenomenon: I start it up, and it doesn't start right away (takes a few seconds of starter motor work...), and then - when it finally starts, the ABS and ESP lights are on, and I feel a drastic decrease in the engine power. Then, I can turn the engine...
