Have shop or parts store like Autozone, Advance, etc clear your codes for you - they do it for free. Sounds like a glitch in system. If they come back on then you know something is wrong,

Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP)

The light will flash if you are driving and the traction control system is activated (it detects wheel slip on ice, water, etc.). This just tells you it is actively working. You should adjust your driving to the current road conditions to prevent loss of control.

If it stays on continuously, the traction control system (ESP) is off, or there is a problem with the ESP system. Usually, the ABS light will also illuminate if the ESP light is on due to a fault.

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)

ESP is engaged and I cant disengage


IF the light is staying on its because it has a problem kind of like a check light. Also if the light is on the ESP IS DISENGAGED. meaning no traction control and most likely no antilock brakes. You need to pull the codes from all of the computers in the car and find out why the system is shutting down. IE wheel speed sensor, loss of power, short to ground, mismatched tires, ride height sensors, etc

2003 vw jetta 1.8 ESP light stays on, no traction control


The problem is almost certainly NOT the MAF sensor.
This problem can be caused by any one of the following
A faulty or dirty ABS wheel sensor...situated at each one of the 4 hubs
although the ABS light would usually illuminate if one of these sensors is faulty.....but NOT always

A faulty ESP switch The switch may be stuck in the open position, which WILL illuminate the ESP light and turn OFF your traction control.

Some models are also fitted with a YAW sensor, which detects side slip while driving. If this goes faulty it will also Illuminate the ESP light.
This sensor is bolted to the center of the floor panel..under the rear seat.
So as to save time and money..You should have the OBD codes scanned. This will pin-point the problem in minutes.

All the best
