No just trying to fix my nieces car. How can I do that?

The ESP management light & abs lightcomes on to inform you that the traction control system & abs is not working correctly and it stores a fault code in the ECU with information on what is wrong.


You can only access this information via a diagnostic device.


I advise you to take your car to a VW main dealer or specialist to have a real time diagnostic check done so a full diagnose can be given cost depends on labor rate.


It could be a failed part on the ESP system or just a software issue that will require an update.


The most common issues with the ESP system is failed wheel speed sensors

If I replace the wheel sensors and that was the issue will the codes clear and will the car drive ok?
yes that's correct...I thinks it would be wise to scan for codes
