Esp light on 2001 aclass

Hi there lose of power steering and the eps light coming on could be the power steering pump is broken or near stuffed so will require a new pump. The other reason is that your power steering oil level is to low and needs toping up. Also check that the drive belts driving the power steering pump are tight and not slipping.

Hope this helps.

Same problem...

not sure what country you are from but in England you get 3 year 60000m warranty if you had your touran in 07 then it should still be in warranty.if not then it could be bad news ,the most common problem is the brake pressure sensor it is designated G201and it is a internal part of the abs unit,the unit costs around £900!!.when this sensor fails the only light that is illuminated is the esp light usually if you have a brake switch problem the engine warning light is illuminated also.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

My 2002 vw passat esp light comes on when you turn the engine on

Hi Amanda
I have come up against this problem a few times before.
If the ABS. light is NOT on, and its the ESP light only that is on...your problem may well be a faulty Yaw sensor. This unit is fitted to the floor panel under the rear the centre. Another problem (although not all that common) is a faulty ESP switch. You should have an OBD code reading done to make sure. If a new YAW sensor must be fitted, the car must be driven with a full steering lock in both directions (left and right) at a speed over 20 Km per hour after fitting. If this is not done the light will remain on, even though it will now drive ok.
As for the price of this unit...Here in Ireland it costs around 140 euro. Hopefully its cheaper where you are. So better to have the codes read first.
I hope this is of some help to you.
Good luck with it

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 they also can cause this problem. This is a small unit fitted on the floor panel under the rear seat.
Good luck

I have two warning lights on they are esp light and emission light please help . 2003 vw passat 1.8t

The eps light is related to your brake light sensor. The emission light you will need to have the code read. Go to your local auto parts store and have it read.

2003 GTI 1.8T ESP light on and cruise control inoperative.

If the ESP light on the touran stayys on pernamently then it is extremely likely that the ABS control unit is faulty. Its a common problem with tourans, unfortunately the part alone is about £1000.

This is common problem with many vw's
Sounds silly but change the brake light switch under brake pedal.
Often solves the problem (about £8 for switch) will need the light turning out by diagnostic tool.
