/ esp light on car
driving in snow and ice today and going up a slope the esp light flashes on on the dashn. does this mean its kicking in and working or developed a fault?
I knew you were going to post this.
My ESP is working fine.
Assuming its like a VW it would mean its activating.
If course you could just check what the handbook says.
The ESP light has been on on Mrs. Ent's Beetle for about 3 years - need to get the blighter switched off because she's thinking of selling it.....
hyundai manuals notoriously short on information. basically tells u where the steering wheel is
That just mean its working. Mine (in my ford) does the same.
I take it if you press and hold the ESP button it doesn't turn the light off?
Na it's intermittent. Comes on after about 15 minutes of driving. Sometimes it doesn't. I remember looking it up on the VAG website and it's a common problem. (I think)
Means its working as intended
I have had this where both abs & asr lights come on after 15 mins at motorway speeds, caused by a misaligned wheel sensor, have you had that checked?
Same with my golf 'binging' at me whenever the temp drops to 4 degrees. It invariably does it just as you are cornering or going round a roundabout and I instantly assume something more serious is wrong like a door open, or seat belt popped or some other unlikley but worrying scenario. (kids in the car etc....one always wonders what may be about to happen or, in sleep deprived state what you havn't done properly!)
Too many distractions.
I had similar with my Skoda Octavia - turned out to be a knackered rear wheel bearing.
