ESP is the electronic gas pedal itself. Housed within it is the ESP controller (ECU). Check if your floor mat is hindering the pedal.

Your car goes in "limp mode"!!!
If you scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this:
"Fault code: P1557 - Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded"
You must try follows if you are able to do this:
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp mode" engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault ("Fault code: P1557 - Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded") still remain in ECU memory !!!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.
It is some work to do here, but after that you will be full satisfied! NO MORE "LIMP MODE"!!!

I have the same problem on my Caddy /07. Switch only works on #4. Seems they should have supplied switches without faults. Any one know how to remove the dash switch?

Back door on vw maxi caddy 2010 wont open, all other doors working, any ideas


The motor may be moving, but the attached arm to the actuator could be broken, fell off, etc. You will need to open remove the door panel to see exactly whats going on.

ON a 94 Caddy power trunk lid. I had to disconnected the fuse.and use the key to the trunk,to open it.the reason being,it was drawing power from the battery.


The switch that shuts the motor off when it pulls the trunk lid down is not working. That power actuator is the same for most GM cars and is readily available at a dealer.

Can't help much on a cure but that code translate into this:

Another lousy problem related to electronics. You might ask a chain auto parts store to reset this code (most scanners have that function) to see if it returns.

thts because you have actuators under the dash. its a real job to tear the dash apart, the actuator control direction/temp. bettertaking it to a caddy dealer. my guys here in the shop hatem and all they work on is caddys
