    Has your battery discharged?

    You'll get an ESP fault if the battery is disconnected (or died) until you do a lock to lock on the steering and going for a short drive.

    Best advice is to get it scanned for faults.

    I have an upgrade battery to put on mine ready for the winter but I'm worried
    I'm going to cause problems if I take the old one off. What will happen?
    It actually looks an easy car to get the battery off for once.
    So, if any warning lights come on when I change it all I need to do is
    go for a spin round the block and do a lock to lock turn of the wheel.
    Then, engine off, keys out, key back in, restart and no lights? Or will it go out
    while I'm driving around?
