asked by on

When driving my esp light comes on and i lose my speed control. The car still runs ok. Can you repair?

My car has 71000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello Allan,

We recommend that you do not drive the vehicle with the ESP light on as it can be very dangerous, especially if caused by your vehicle’s ABS. We recommend that you book an inspection in order to narrow down the cause of the ESP light.

Thank you, YourMechanic Team
