    Question What's going on here?

    Had my car on service last week, standard issue + haldex oil and brake fluid. Yesterday the engine light lit up (yellow) and today the ESP light is on permanently. Any clues to what's going on?

    Check the fuses on top of the battery, remove each one and check for breaks. Clean the connections and refit.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Got a diagnose yesterday. Cracked vacuum pipe. Don't know what the ESP light was about though, so will check the fuse box.

    Check the MAF connection. When its disconnected, dirty etc, the ESP light comes on.
