    Default Traction/ESP light on in the wet

    Every now and again, when I start my car, the traction/ESP warning light comes on. Sometimes it goes out after a while but more often than not remains on for the entire journey. In the majority of cases it happens after a heavy downpour. Any ideas what the problem could be?

    Thanks!

    It should come on during the POST and then go off along with all the other sensor lights
    If it stays on and remains on, then either the TC button has been pressed (switching TC off) or the sensors are faulty
    However, the ABS light would normally stay on as well, as they are part of the same circuit
    It might have been unsettled on brake pad change, so well worth having it looked at

    Thanks. Pads were changed recently so that seems a logical place to start.
