Cud be many things-hav it scanned for free at a discount place--not all problems show on readout-like vacuum leaks etc--secure a tech manual in library or web

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.

Why is my OBDII not picking up codes for my ABS light coming off and on?


OBDII is strictly for engine management. The ABS uses it's own computer. You will need a higher end multi-function scan tool or an ABS specific scan tool to pull ABS codes and /or data.

Have a 2002 Jag w/ 84,000 - engine light light on - code p1000 ( stopped at advanced auto ) - emissions ( converter ) there are 4 or 5 sensors - parts guy at a dealership mentioned that p1000 is a general...


P1000 normally is shown after the engine management light is reset.
When the light is on you should see other codes that will indicate which sensor(s) are faulty.
Most good mechanics have the equipment to read these codes and can give you a list (there may be multiple codes)
If you check out http://www.bluejag.co.uk you will find further information on this subject.

Why does the ABS and TCS light up?


There has been a fault detected in the antilock brake system that has caused these lights to illuminate. An ABS system diagnostic will be required to find the source of the problem. Repair the ABS and the Traction Control will be corrected also.
Good luck.

Check your brake fluid level first. If it is fine then you probably have a bad abs brake sensor.

I HAVE A JAG XTYPE 2.0 V6 SPORT, HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT LIGHT CAME ON AFTER A HARSH GEAR CHANGE (WHEN THE CLUTCH IS NOT FULLY PRESSED), HAD THE FAULT READ AND WAS ADVISED THE GEAR SENSOR HAD TRIGGERED AS THERE WAS A HARSH GEAR CHANGE, HAD THE CODES ALL READ AND CLEARED NOW THE LIGHT COMES ON INTERMITANTLY, AND GOES AWAY AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS, I BELIEVE THIS A COMMON FAULT WITH JAGS SADLY THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS EITHER LIVE WITH IT OR REMOVE THE BULB FROM THE INSTRUMENT PANEL.

The best thing to do is go to an exhaust specialist, who can check the catylitic converter and also the oxygen sensors. You will need to replace these items if they are at fault. Hope this helps

Replace coolant level sensor in radiator. The wheel sensor may be the abs problem. You will need to hook to a diagnostics tool to find the cure. Check vac hoses to cruise unit for leak.
