ESC TPM start/stop parking sensor fault.

Hello I have a 65 plate cupra 280 sub 8. Intermittently I get the faults I have mentioned in the thread title pop up on the dash. I have plugged in my own fault code reader and it says it can find no faults. I have also put my car in at halfords so they can do there own diagnostics, they also said there was nothing wrong. I have checked the tyres fuses ect and they seen fine with my untrained eye. These errors happen randomly and only come on from time to time. When driving it only completely disables the traction control and parking sensors. Does anyone here know what might be wrong with my car, or will I need to visit a VAG specialist?

If it's a generic code reader then it will only see generic codes... but Carista or VCDS will see them all.
 

Seriously?

I've had a similar issue in the past; Traction Control warning, Start stop warning, Cruise control warning, Tyre Pressure and ABS warning. Turned out to be a dud wheel sensor/ reluctor ring. This was on a C Class Merc, but I'd imagine the principle is the same. Batteries on their way out can also cause a whole raft of random warning lights. Best get some diagnostics on it.

I thought the same, that is why i put in in at halfords so they can use their more professional scanner but they said it had no faults showing
