Driving car the other day and the ESP light came on, the triangle with the pic of the car and two skid lines in it , Ive noticed the light is coming on then sometimes goes off but now mainly its staying on . what also is really weird is that when the light comes on not only is the traction control not working but the indicators go wrong ie I have to manualy cancel them .
anyone have any ideas what could be wrong or what to try ?
My car is also an Astra H SRI but with a prototype VXR engine putting out about 210 BHP. It was one of 5 prototypes made in Nov 2004 and intended for show room use.
Driving it the other day the ESP light came on.
My local dealer quoted £1247.99 inc VAT for the replacement part and about £160 + vat for fitting.
The light stays on all the time and I can't say I notice anything else in normal driving.
The car feels a bit unstable when I push it a bit so it looks like a real error.
I decided that spending £1400 on a car just short of 5yo and valued at just over £5000 (when fixed), was a bad idea (especially with MOT and new tires due soon), so reluctantly I am selling it in part exchange for a new car.
Heartbreaking! but the new one should be here at the end of the month!
