    Default warning hazard Car Skidding

    Question :- The hazard warning light has come on - which to me means it prevents skidding? Why would this come on though?
    How does one solve it / remove it?

    Do you mean the esp light? Pic of the car with skid marks?

    If that's on permanently is normally a sign of the maf sensor failing.

    It's attached to your pipework just off your airbox. Simply unplug connector and remove from the pipework and replace.

    Do you have any running issues? Misfires? Car cutting out?

    No the car is running good. The only thing I notice is there is a click when I break, but other wise drives like a dream

    Are there any fault codes if you do the pedal test?

    Hi I have no other fault codes and the brakes work well. The abs light is not on either. I have tried what the book says and that is to put the sport
    button on and turn the engine off and then back on. But the esp light stays on. Found the sensor or sensors as there are 3 on the pipe. Just got to work
    out which 1 it is. By the way my vxr is 56 reg if that helps.

    Put up a post asking if anyone in your area has Tech2 to plug in.
    Even a faulty ABS valve modulator can cause the ESP to illuminate without showing up ABS fault or any pedal test codes.

    I took the car to my local garage who did the health check on the machine and it identified that the ESP pump is faulty and the sensor is inside the control box
    so I need to send my esp pump away to be reconditioned . Also, I was informed that my power steering will not work until this is done.
    Any idea of any good companies that can do this and do it in a positive quick return ?
    I do not want my car odd the road long term as I need it for my work
