Esp coming on for no reason and cutting power

Touareg acting very strange as of late. airbag light has come on constantly saying airbag fault when I start up. Light bulb fault comes up and right parking light works intermittently.

Latest and biggest problem was yesterday. Was towing a trailer and esp light came on and it cut the power. Turned esp off and sometimes back left break would come on (usually in 3rd) and would release itself then about 50 metres later. Took trailer off now and esp comes on and kills the power (again normally when in 3rd gear or cat that speed) for no reason. Could be accelerating on a flat surface and it's doing it. Turning off esp also makes no difference.

Sounds like you've been ignoring warnings and now they've stacked up ..... clearly it has some issues and needs proper diagnostics.
