In Topic: Warning light ESP

13 August 2009 - 07:37 PM

Thanks Gaz6076 for your reply,

Engine 1.6 petrol Duratec.
Ford main dealer charged me 86.25 for the diagnostic, the car was back outside in less than half hour !!

Quote from technicians sheet:-
"Investigated into ESP light on placed on IDS & followed guided diag found fault code 1288 brake pressure control, advised new ABS module & valve block".

A few weeks before the light coming on the yaw sensor (near to steering column, I think) was heard clicking far too sensitively, I first thought that this could be the fault if the yaw sensor was faulty?

The car was OK when parked up at night but the light came on immediately on start the next day. ESP switch has no effect.
Fault appeared about 1000 miles after service, also stated dirty brake fluid at service if this means anything? however now replaced.

Cheers for your help, Thanks.

Hi,

The same happened to my Focus after about three years.
The dealer quoted 150 labour as they claimed that the peddle needed to be split from the master cylinder !!
My solution was to use an elastic band or several hooked onto the metal bar just under the plastic fascia around the peddle and back onto the bar.
If you lay on your back in the footwell you can see the silver bar just under the edge of the dash and stops about where your left knee would be. Hook the bands onto this, then around the peddle and then back onto the bar. Just watch for the bands rubbing on the flat plate approx half way up the peddle for wearing through the bands.
Works OK. Hope this helps.
