Hi I’m Kevin . The esp system stands for electronic stability programme and is basically the system that electronically assists with the vehicle keeping traction . The first step here is to get car plugged into a diagnostic tool and find the reason for warning by reading the fault codes . This then allows a point to start diagnosis

Is there no way to fix it at home without a diagnostic tool
Audi Mechanic: Kevin, Technician replied 4 months ago

Unfortunately without scanning for the cause it’s impossible to know why the system has shut down
