Question about 2008 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Running out of options..

I have taken my 2008 Malibu in twice now to be looked at. I am experiencing hard turning esp when I turn left also when I go over a bump or am backing out of my driveway I hear a clunking noise.. Both dealership's have told me everything looks fine. They have taken it out on a test ride and nothing could be duplicated. Of course when I leave the problem happens. Just wondering what it may or could be.

Where is the esp sensor location located on a 2008 dodge avenger

Trac Control is usually Embedded into the ABS
Braking System--SO you can't get rid of it

Need to read up on the ESP Sensor Function, as well

Your going to have to keep shelling out the big bucks, the
rest of your life, with today"s technology

Once you disable one thing, something else will be effected,
& you know the dash MIL Lamp will stay on & the vehicle may shut down or not run correctly, at some point,depending on your mods

La Senal de ESP de mi E350 4Matic mercedes benz esta encendida y dice que el ESP no funciona?

Reinitialize the system. Close all doors. Start the engine and apply the brake. Turn steering to full left lock and hold for two seconds, turn to right lock for 2 seconds, return to center. Repeat that procedure a couple of times. Move car forward and/or backward at least 30 feet. If there is no reset DTC and no stored or registered DTC, the MIL should go out.

2008 dodge Magnum esp light is on hit button to turn off won't turn off? Help.....

Do you mean that the light with the car and skid-marks is constantly on? If it is not blinking this means that the ESP in your car is not on. It doesn't mean that it is constantly on. If the stability protection isn't working it's likely a problem associated with your ABS system. The car should run fine without traction control but if you absolutely need it I would suggest taking it into the dealership and having them take a look.
