Ths morning the
" ESP Faulty go to Service Sation Warning " :(

came up on the dash and is now coming on each time I start the car.

2006 C Series Coupe 220D, 30,000 Mainly Motorway cruising

Could this be some thing simple tha I could change/replace myself, or could it be something more major?

If a major issue, any reconmendations for a indie in the Somerset Avon area?

Thanks

You need a short test to see what is going wrong, could be so many things, not worth guessing!!

The 204 I think.

There is one fault listed where you just have to clean up the lateral sensor.
Dirty poor contacts is another on the ESP module

OK so it needs a test to see whats wrong!

Any reconmendations for an Indie in Avon Somerset area?

Or

I have my Services carried out in Weston Super Mare by the Dealer who have been Ok with me once I have haggled on the Service price, but I'm a bit wary to just drive in and say tell me what's wrong and how much to fix. Could I just ask them to just check it on their system to tell me what the problem is, I assume they will charge for this

Advice Please

Thanks

Andy

If you get the codes read out,,I can give you the fix details and there are 2 easy DIY ones.

Cornerstone garage in Illminster do read outs but possibly the wrong side of Somerset
