Esp Malfunction

6 posts in this topic

Had this come up on my digi on the way home on my 09 T200 Connect so turned off and started again and off i went. Been through a lot of mud on a farm so could the sensors just be dirty? Has the odd lumping/misfire just before. What's the best way to vlean and where are they located? Thanks.

Probably is a dirty sensor, it will dry and flake off in time, alternatively if you take a hose to it, you could speed that process up.

With regards the lumpy running, it could be worth cleaning the MAF sensor or MAP sensor with Electrical Contact cleaner and see if that helps?

Thanks very much for the reply. Seeing as i just about know where the steering wheel is, can you help eith sensor location. I assume the ESP is under near the wheels and the MAP/MAF in the engine bay? Cheers.

No worries well esp actually uses the abs sensors, so 12 of clock behind the wheels, then you could just jet wash the wheel area.

As for the maf sensor, if you find the air filter box with the hose coming out and to the turbo the maf sensor is here on the side with the box, just look for the wiring going into it :-) when you find it let me know.

I have found a 4 wire plug that goes into the housing of the air filter box just before it runs away into a large borepipe. Does that sound correct?

Sounds right, so you need to disconnect this and use the torx screwdriver to remove the sensor it's connected to then drown it in electrical contract cleaner and replace
