Mercedes C240 2002 model ESP problem

Thanks but in addition to the ESP problem the vehicle had a tendency to pick speed with great difficulty, sometimes not moving at all and then suddenly bursting to life. That problem is no longer there so the work helped to an extent. He suggests we now take a look at the ABS and the tyre sensors. This problem started only after I got my brake pads replaced (by a different mechanic). Not only did they use the wrong make, I understand the sensors were not replaced correctly. I have also been told to replace the battery.

Its possible that right wheel speed sensor is dropping out early making the truck think that wheel is locking up. That will activate the ABS and let the brake go on the right wheel which will make the vehicle pull slightly left. The only way to know for sure is to watch the wheel speeds on a scanner and see which one is drpping out first and replacing that speed sensor/bearing assembly.

good Luck

It sounds like you might be having a problem with your Electronic control module. Are the only codes coming up just for the sensor? Have you recently cleaned your engine or driven in very wet weather? If so, water could have gotten into your connections at the modules and causing odd codes. I hope this helps. Jay

SOURCE: 2007 Rav 4- Front Brake pad growl during stops

I had a 2008 rav4 and within the first 10,000 I noticed this problem. Had the pads changed at 12, 22, 30, all free of charge from the dealer. Had the rotors replaced as well twice, the issue came up again & since it was a lease I threatened to sue and I was released from my term fee free. If you are having the same issue post here we need to open a dialogue. I'm sure many people have just paid for repairs without thinking it's an issue on the vehicle. Toyota will deny it until it's a media issue....

I have an ESP problem in my Mercedes Benz C220 CDI, 2008 and the problem is an ESP CURRENTLY unavailable. Cruise controls and speedtronic inoperative


It is usually a ABS wheel speed sensor has gone faulty, but you would have to have electronic diagnostic done to read off a fault code (DTC) and maybe a live data scan . Hope this helps

Need to know if my "09/1994" M.Bnz SL500 is equipped w/Electronic Stability Program.

Wheel alignment can make esp light comes on continuously?


Hi Rodney, I doubt that wheel alignment being out will cause an error code on the ESP. Have the vehicle diagnostically scanned. The problem may well be with one of the speed pick up sensors fitted to the wheels.Regards John

What is esp on a mercedes 2007 s550


Could it be, your vehicle has Psychic intuition? Just kidding... :-)

Well, actually...it's not far from it !!!

ESP was co-developed between Daimler-Benz & Bosch, and was later adopted by Mercedes (across their range) from 1999.

As you know, most vehicles now have ABS braking...and some now have a form of Traction control.

Well, ESP exceeds the safety boundaries:

It's an intuitive system, connected to your vehicle's ABS, steering, dampers and Drive-train management.

ESP has saved countless lives since its implementation by reducing the risk of skidding on cornering and by maintaining the vehicle’s directional stability – even in critical conditions.

How exactly does it work?

1) This is achieved by selectively braking individual wheels, thus counteracting the tendency to skid in critical handling situations and allowing the driver to maintain control of the vehicle.

2) Oversteer is corrected by applying brake to the front outer wheel, understeer by applying brake to the rear inner wheel. Engine power can also be limited in some applications

3) The system can measure steering angles, lateral forces, and can compensate the damper ride height (optional).

Hope this helps....

What is esp off alert on dashboard


ESP means Electronic Stability Program.

Resources @ http://www.caradvice.com.au/14153/2008-kia-sportage-review/

ESP monitors the vehicle's response to the driver's steering and braking inputs to detect oversteer or understeer. If sensors detect that a skidding condition is developing, ESP brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces excess power as needed to help keep the vehicle going in the direction the driver is steering.

What does the ESP off switch do?
The switch disables ESP's capability to reduce the engine torque. It also reduces the ESP intervention threshold to about 20%.

How do I know ESP is working?
The triangle in the center of the speedometer flashes when ESP intervenes; either with ESP switched on or off. It's a reminder to adjust your speed to the prevailing road conditions, usually by reducing it. If instead one "steps on it", with ESP ON, the engine power may be reduced to prevent a potentially critical situation.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)
The standard-fitted ESP® system selectively applies braking forces to the front and rear wheels in such a way as to reduce the risk of skids and slides and help the driver maintain control in critical situations. The system extends the technology of the anti-lock braking and acceleration skid control systems with a range of additional sensors which are used principally to detect yaw motion.

The ESP® computer continuously compares the actual behaviour of the vehicle with the computed ideal values. The moment the car deviates from the direction intended by the driver, specially developed control logic causes the system to intervene with split-second speed to bring the car back on track. It does this in two ways:

    Precisely controlled braking at one or more wheels

    Reducing engine power.

ESP® in this way helps to stabilise the vehicle in critical situations.

Rate this.

I have no owners manual for my 2000 Mercedes S500. How do you change the radio station presets? What are the 1,2,3 numbers on the seat bottoms and how to use them? What is the ESP button for on the dash?...


To set the stations you just tune in to the station and hold the preset number button until it locks in. The numbers on the seat bottoms are presets for the seats. Put the seat into what ever position, you should also have a round green button, push that then push a number. Change the seat position and when you hit that number/hold the button it should go back to that position. ESP is traction control on the vehicle, it allows to disable it for snow at low speeds when wheel rotation is needed when known slippage will most likely occur.

Warning Light on Mercedes ML270


Hi,

To my understanding:
BAS ESP - Electronic Stability Program (keeps you moving in the direction you intended the vehicle to go); probably a faulty brake switch or a bad brake sensor. You may want to reference this forum for additional insights;
ETS - Electronic Traction System (keeps you moving); would require an appropriate code reader to diagnose and pinpoint problem.Surprisingly, there has been some reports of defective brake pedal switch that activates this warning. You may lilkewise want to reference this forum for additional insights.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
