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: esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading

If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!

Abs light and esp light are on in my pegoet 308


If any of four abs sensors is not working then abs light comes up and subsequently affects car's stability (esp). OBD diagnostic scanner will find out that which sensor is causing it. If all sensors are fine then most probably there is a problem with your abs/esp unit in engine bay.
PEUGEOT announced a problem with the 308 vehicles and it has been identified that the operation of the ABS/ESP braking unit may be affected by the ingress of water. Previously, recall are announced to be affected vehicles to reinforce the resistance of the ABS/ESP unit to water.

Esp driving


location not stated, or road conditions. nor if in 4low , nor if the ESP switch is off or on. Ask Suzuki for help (lol) or any ASE shop.

it's not magic, it can not give traction , if none.
on ice slow down. (esp can do that too. slow you,brake you and even
shift gears in the transmission)

are you in 4wd? or high 4Low, esp is inactive. (or limited)
read the operators guide. (if lost, get one now)
read the page on driving on ice.
chapters 5,6,7.
have you had any off these conditions , related to ESP, this a
is the ESP light acting wrong, or CEL check engine light running?
are all dash lamps (warning) showing correctly per the opr. guide?
ESP & ABS are vary complex, (not magic)


quote from the servise manual. (car battery dead or disconnected?)
ESP control module
When ESP control module is removed / installed, do
not use impact wrenches which generate shock or
impact to avoid damaging sensors in ESP control
module.
Note that Calibrate word here..!
When any of the following operation is done, calibrate
steering angle sensor, G sensor and master cylinder
pressure sensor (in ESP control module) referring to
"Sensor Calibration in Section 4F
- When battery or dome fuse is removed. (
a low battery or weak)
- When steering angle sensor is replaced.
- When ESP control module is removed.
- When yaw rate / G sensor assembly is removed.



read this, it covers this system well,

http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_esp.htm

read page 7-2 here (the do not drive words)
http://www.autodealertools.com/quickQuote/manuals/2007/Grand%20Vitara.pdf

this car has no center differential. (read limits there of)
are you using chains on the tires?
oper guide page 4-6 , read that yet?

If the vehicle speed is greater thanapproximately 30 km/h (19 mph), the ESP systems (other than ABS) will turn
on automatically and the light will go out.
When the transfer switch (if equipped) is
turned to the "4L LOCK" position, the

ESP systems (other than ABS) will be canceled automatically. The light will come on and stay on.
• If the ESP systems operate continu-ously such as when driving on slippery roads, the traction control functions of the ESP systems may be canceled temporarily to avoid overheating the brake pads, and the light will come on. After a short period of time, the ESP.

(this latter cut out happens, with wild driving)

I have a vauxhall meriva and esp light came on. Steering was effected. What is it?


As ESP is a safety feature I would have it looked at by a garage.
ESP is a system that affects several systems in the car braking and steering as well as power, traction and dynamics. This is to stop the car from losing control on a slippery surface or a tight corner and reacts faster than the reaction time of the driver.

What does esp bas mean and the slippery when wet symbol displays on the dash board?


This light comes on when the computer sees the wheels spin, for example if a wheel spins faster than another this light will come on , this is to tell you its slippery out, if this light stays on then there may be a problem with the system and a scan tool is needed to see what the problem is, the computer will store codes listing what part of the system has failed and it will turn the system off because its not working correctly.also some cars have a switch where you can turn the system off yourself, the dash would then say esp/bas off but if it just stays on then you have a problem with the system, if it turns on and goes back off then its okay. good day.

I have an esp button on my VW should I switch it on in this weather or is it on default?


IMPORTANT NOTE: PERMANENTLY YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE "ESP" BUTTON FREE! It is "ON" by default, and ESP warning lamp on dashboard is turned off.
If you need ESP system deactivation for short time, then push the ESP button. The ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned on, for warning you that ESP system is deactivated. Only for short time in few special cases ESP system needs to be deactivated when you need to skid the car to go out of a bad situation, (e.g. to start off on slippery road, to climb on hill slippery road, ...). When you push again the ESP button the ESP system will be activated back, and ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned off.
If you don't push the ESP button when driving, and the ESP warning lamp on dashboard will be turned on itself accidentally, the ESP system is faulty and it's not active! Then you need to go at workshop for repair the car!

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Tilt wheel broken steering floating


General Motor cars will have this problem if you use the steering wheel as leverage to get in and out of the front seat. They use a ratcheting ball and socket to allow the column to tilt. t is held together with 4 screws, like a box. These screws work loose and allow the wheel to feel like it floats. It is a hard job esp. with an air bag to deal with. The steering column has to be almost removed from the car to fix. Removing the steering wheel and all covers down to the floor board / firewall area. The screws have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. A job better suited for a dealer or local shop who can deal with the air bag. Sorry.

it sounds like your electric power steering pump has gone. if the esp light is on then it means it has recorded a fault in the electrical stability program system and may need to be plugged in to read codes, the fault may refer to a fauly wheel speed sensor
