    Default TC ESP kicks in even when wheels arent spinning?

    Having a problem, when I'm driving and turn into a road, not a sharp turn and not fast, the TC light comes on and flashes... now its started to do it as I pull off, again, the wheels are not spinning...

    I had noticed a loss of power earlier but not seen the TC/ESP light coming on.

    Any ideas? I've no lights on the dash, so I guess no fault codes...

    could the ABS sensor be dirty or is there muck in the castelations on the ABS ring, I wonder. Might be giving a false infromation to the "ecu".

    I would look at them all to see if there is anything that looks "out of order" see if there is anything wrong with the ABS rings. I don,t know if you could clean the sensor with some "electrical cleaner", might be worth a try.
