What is the easiest way of checking the ESP is working or not please?
I done a quick search but too many 3 lettered acronyms left me confused.
Many thanks
Steve

The easiest, maybe not the safest, way is to find a strip of wet pavement and hammer the throttle. The yellow triangle in the cluster will light and wheel spin will be corrected. No acronyms needed.

Just go around a corner fast from a stop and when the tire starts to break lose (meaning one of the tires has less traction on the pavement) the yellow light will come one.:burnout::burnout: :bannana:

Just a quick thought before I burn my tyres.
How do I know if its turned off if no yellow light comes on or does it always start from the default position of being turned on?
Thanks again
Steve
