    It means you're spinning your wheels...slow down a bit.

    I would say you have a lateral acceleration sensor fault. ESP is governed by a variety of sensors so its knows the cars speed, steering angle, slip angle and what is being governed by your right foot!

    I would guess that this sensor is faulty causing a severe difference in road speed to lateral speed and the ECU cannot determine what is correct.

    You need to get it on STAR to read the fault memory and see what is stored.
