Q: How do you fix the ESC

asked by on

The engine loses power

Hello, thank you for writing in. There are several issues that can occur when it comes to faults with the electronic stability control. If the light has come on, then the first step should be to have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic troubleshooting codes. The light is telling you a code has been set and the computer wants to tell you something. This scan can be done by a technician and at most local automotive parts stores. There are many sensors in which one may need to be replaced. The less often the entire module fails and needs to be replaced. The issue needs to be determined before corrective action can be taken.
