SOURCE: 01 Beetle turbo - ESP light

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.

SOURCE: 2002 Audi A4 Esp Light comes on, car turns off when I have to sto

I had the same issue with my '05 A4 1.8T.  Turns out it was the RPM sensor.  Audi tried to tell me it was teh fuel pump and the cam-shaft positioning sensor.  Paid for teh fuel pump replacement and it died 6 blocks from the dealership.  Then they replaced the RPM snesor, works great now... Except it's still an Audi.

SOURCE: emergency brake light comes on while driving

The wire that connects to emergency brake is loose, and grounding out. It probably just needs to be tightened up.

Sounds like you're not running on all 4 cylinders all the time. Could be one or more dirty spark plugs, bad ignition coils, etc. You'll ruin the engine when you don't get it fixed quickly, even after repairing you might notice a significant hp-decrease.

My advice would be to take it to the dealer asap and have them troubleshoot. Since they can read the faultcodes from the car's ECU, it should give a good pointer to the cause.

Mercedes 2002 c180 classic abs and esp lights remain on dash is it electrical problem? or back disc pads need replacing


only an inspection can reveal which, have your brakes checked

  1. If the ESP light on a Mercedes Benz stays on, try holding the ESP button down for a few seconds. If holding ESP down for a few seconds doesn't reset the program, it's time to head to your local Mercedes dealership for a repair. More likely than not, there is some sort of error with the steering mechanism which causes the ESP light to remain on. You don't have to be alarmed but it's best to get it checked out as soon as you're able to. Most Mercedes have a four year, fifty thousand mile warranty which is, literally, bumper to bumper except for maintenance service. But if the ESP light stays on, this will almost certainly be covered.
  2. If your car goes into a spin and the ESP light does not come on, it's time to see that repair shop too. Your Mercedes electronic stability program is not working properly if the car does not take control when a spin is detected.

Esp light flashing


There could be one or more of several reasons why the ESP light has illuminated on your Smart car...
For example, you could have a fault with dirty reluctor rings on the Abs system - faulty Abs sensor/ s ... a fault with the brake light switch - a fault with the steering angle sensor -- even a software glitch / issue in the control system...
The above are known issues that can and do cause the Esp light to come on.
What you will have to do is have the car connected to a dealer diagnostic machine - This will run a full diagnostic test and fault code read - to see why the Esp light has come on and quickly and efficiently find the right cause - and then it can be sorted out, whatever it transpires to be.
You really cannot do much on a Diy basis on these for this fault. You can check the reluctor rings as mentioned above and the wiring to the ABS sensors. The abs light will often come on to with the Esp light - but not always. Dont check these these things with the Ign On....
Too, you can check to see if the brake lights are working - if they are not - thats a definite indication of brake lamp switch failure which will cause the Esp light to come on - but while its worth checking - even if the lights do work - it doesn't always follow the switch is ok - it has a dual function - brake lights and engine management circuitry...
At which point, if you have found nothing - you will have to have the diagnostic done as above to find the fault.

Volkswagon Passat 2005 - driving home from work and the handbrake warning light comes on followed by the annoying alarm. Turn slightly left it stops then the ASB warning light comes on followed by the ESP...


This sometimes is triggered by the MAF(Mass Air Flow Sensor), try cleaning it with the highest percent isoproply alcohal first, do not touch the sensor with anything use a big bag to soak it into, or just replace the sensor.

ESP light on


Hi Colin
You should get the OBD codes checked to make certain what the problem is.. £1500 sounds a crazy price. If the ABS light is NOT on also..your problem could be as simple as the ESP switch. Also check if your vehicle is fitted with a YAW sensor...as they also can cause this problem. This is a small unit fitted on the floor panel under the rear seat.
Good luck
