01 Beetle turbo - ESP light

The ESP light and check engine light keeps coming on. When the ESP light comes on it is hard to get the car to go up any kind of hill. I took it to the mechanic and they could find nothing wrong.

There must be faults if these lights are coming on. Check these first. (Scanner needed) Sounds alot like a boost hose is pierced or loose. Check all of them from the turbo to the intercooler and then to the motor. Also check closely the intercooler might be pierced too so small you won't see. Check all the clamps are tight around all these hoses. Many times both lights come on if your map sensor on the intercooler isn't getting good readings but rarely is the problem the sensor.
You might have a strange air sound at first then the car will go into limp mode and you loose all power.
If everything is good there check the mass air flow sensor.

Check engine light came on 2002 vw turbo diesel beetle?


well first off you need to have the codes checked and go from there there are many reasons that can cause the engine light to come on. when you find what codes are stored in it you can go from there. as for the turn signals most of th time i replace the emergency flasher switch. but it wouldnt hurt to check the fuses first.

Esp light comes on and the turbo does not work on mercedes E 300 turbo diesel w 210


i think you may have a problem with one of the sensors on the turbo not sure what one or where it is on this model engine ,i would be inclined to look for any sensors then test them with a automotive multimeter although a normal one would check resistances and voltages just as well ,also check for any vacumn pipes that may be perished on or aound the inlet manifold area

Some Auto Part Stores will check your car for trouble codes for free. A scanner tool will check your computer memory to see what codes are being set which cause the check engine light to come on.

Oil pressure light comes on when I put the car in motion (at about 2000 rpms)


all turbo engines have a oil line to the turbo. If it is not getting oil the turbo will burn up and have to be replaced. Change your oil and filter to start with.
