    ESP problem

    Hi,
    I have a 52 1.8t and have started having trouble intermittently (Sp) with the ESP coming on when I put the foot down on perfectly straight/ dry roads. It will cut the power, so I turn the ESP off for a few secs and this seems to cure the issue for a while. This has now happened a couple or three times and its starting to feel like an expensive fix!
    Any clues Boys and Girls?
    thanks
    Gareth

    Both, the car isn't losing traction. It tends to be after the ESP activated after going round a corner etc.

    has your car been mapped because I noticed that the ESP was slightly more sensitive after a map.

    Get it scanned because it could be a faulty wheel speed sensor which is about 35 for part and 1 hours labour.
