ESP is short for "Electronic Stability Program" this system aids in keeping the car under control if you are sliding or skidding, it is part of the ABS brake control system. When the light comes on and stays on this is to alert you to the fact a fault has occurred in the ESP system, if the light just blinks and then goes off that means the system was activated due to excessive wheel slip being sensed and is normal. If the light is on and stays on a fault code is set in the systems control computer, the Suzuki dealer has a special electronic systems scanner that can read what fault is keeping the light on in the form of a code.

My esp light has come on


Your esp light coming on means that there is a fault in the chassis system(like ABS)..It may be the brake light , multifunction switches or a wheel sender. Find a reputably shop whom will look at the values of these systems, not just the codes. Values are your important resource. See if you brake light are coming on, if so discount one half of the switch.

Good Luck

What does it mean when your engine light, esp and bas light comes on


ESP = electronic stabilitly program, BAS = brake assist system. There could be a number of issues causing these lights to come on. Loose sensor connector at one or more wheel locations. Build up of dirt and grim on the sensor or sensor wheel can also cause these lights to come on, These are the two easiest thoings you can do, otherwise, a service call will need to be made at your local Jeep dealer due to the complexity of this system.

My ESP light comes on and off while i am driving AUDI A4 2001 model. Please assist


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

When driving my Audi A4 it seems to lose power and the ESP light comes on? What does this mean?


The ESP light refers to your car's traction control. The loss of power you feel is the car throttling back in an attempt to regain normal traction conditions. This is by design but if you car is flashing ESP under normal driving conditions, you most likely have an ESP sensor problem and should have it checked at the dealer.

Warning light on audi a4


This is the indicator for ESP (stability control). If you look on your dash, you'll see a button with, you guessed it, ESP written on it. This allows you to turn your stability control on and off. If your light is on constantly, try pushing the ESP button. If it flashes on and off (ie during hard driving) this simply means it is working.
