Following my earlier post ref the ESP light coming on intermittently I took it to the local Vx specialist today. He checked it all out and there is a problem with the data coming from the steering angle sensor. Most of the time it's fine and then it goes bad hence the light coming on. He checked that on this model, the SAS isn't on the steering rack and it isn't so his conclusion was that it's in the CIM Reckons around £300 to replace it unless I can source one elsewhere. He did say that there wouldn't be a problem driving it with the light on until I can get it fixed.
Anyone had this problem before and can confirm it's the CIM at fault?
