    will let you know ripper what happens when I replace the old battery with a new one. It is frustrating especially when the Mrs is carrying on all the time about the car and the costs associated with maintainace. Especially when my other car is an EF falcon that has done 400,000 km and has been to the mechanics 3 times in the last 10years. I've had
    the holden to the mechanics 4 times in the last month.

    If its the original battery, my money is it being at fault. These ve's have hussy fits when the battery isn't up to scratch.

    battery wont change the problem . everyone always sais its the battery .

    truth be told few years back i had an automatic sv6 . did the same thing , esp off , etc only thing which is much worse then my manual SSV , is that in auto it goes into limp mode and will only allow you to go 30kms an hour or something stupid . car bascially doesnt even move . now i too replaced the orignal battery after the previous owner of 4 years . made no difference at all , just the same story . i even pulled out the maff sensor and cleaned it with carby cleaner. holden hooked it up and charged me over $100 , removed it for it to only come back on 10 mins later . This is my 3rd VE , and all 3 have spat stupid esp problems without fail . Im curious on the trip+enter procedure , as i would like to try it myself . its annoying getting in the car and having it beep several times on startup.

Has anyone out there had the same issue and what was the problem? Or is there a mechanic out there that has had experience with this problem that could direct me to the cause. Not sure i'm happy just to take it to the dealer as it is out of warranty and let them spend hour after hour investigating with no fault found and a massive bill at the end. Really appreciate any help/advise that you could give me to steer my mechanic in the right direction.
    Wheel Speed Sensors
    I think you will find you will have a faulty wheel speed sensor or sensors and until you replace the faulty item I believe you will continue to have the ESP shut off and ABS issues.

    For some reason, I understand the rear wheel speed sensors seem to deteriorate more quickly than the fronts so I would start there. (If this was my car I would just replace both rear wheel speed sensors and test drive).

    (I very much doubt that merely replacing the battery is going to solve your problems).

    It's a pretty common fault, most times it's only when the commodores are cold. Start the car for like 30 seconds, turn it off, let it sit for 10 seconds and start it again and usually that fixes it. It's to do with a start up check it does and I believe it's caused by the O2 Sensors/Cat Checks.

    I turned my cat checks off in the computer via HP Tuners which fixed the issue for me.....

    VE SS stability control turning itself off.  Please help.-20130713_112233.jpgUpdate for those who have the ESP/ABS problem .

    iv pulled out all my abs sensors and cleaned them with thinners , most had a little bit of gunk . also as mentioned they seam to say it is the rear left sensor that is a common problem , this was the first sensor i managed to look at , and straight away a dead sign as to why i was having problems. hope this helps as it immediately turned my esp back on and abs off.
