Probably a stupid question but did you put run flats back on?
icarsoft MBII would clear the codes too if you know someone with one

Sounds like a speed sensor has been damaged? Or just coincidentally stopped working?

Does your car give you the pressure of the tyre that's flat? Or is your car telling you that you have flat tyre? My car does the latter & it's reset via the dash cluster ..... no iCarsoft required

Can't say for the ESP light :confused:

no doesn't give tyre pressures has no settings on control unit for tyres, just has message as stated above, wouldn't be surprised if garage has caused some damage whilst working on car but pretty hard to prove when I don't know whats wrong

My car tyre pressure reset is the same as this ML (though he does some faffing about :D)


The fact that your ESP warning light does suggest an ABS sensor has been disturbed.

If they replaced a spring they may have damaged the wire to the ABS sensor in the process.
An iCarsoft should detect that if you read the codes for the ABS
