    Hi guys.
    Need help. Have a SSV 2006 VE. On inital startup for the day its fine. Once engine is warm if you turn off then you crank engine again the ESP and statbility light turns on and car goes to limp mode.

    Ignition problem? Does the engine run smoothly or does it have a miss? Or a failed wheel speed sensor...
    Have a quick look under the car behind each wheel for damage or anything tangled up in the suspension..

    Ill check those out.
    I just drove car 20 mins then stopped and started again. When I started it again the lights came up again and after a few times trying to start it with no warning lights it appears the battery is now dead. The motor isnt cranking and but has enough power to use power locks etc.

    I can feel a slight miss. Feels more like a little lump.

    Um does that mean the battery just died or it kept starting but you kept switching it off and then starting it again hoping the warning would disappear?
    Sometimes a nearly dead battery with low voltage can trigger random warnings.

    Now is the time to get it scanned properly to reveal the fault codes it's got stored to actually find out what the problem is and fix it.

    Hey I was talking about the fault codes in the computer. You need it scanned by a mechanic, NRMA, or Super cheap to find out what the fault is that made the ESP light come on. Then you will have a good idea of what needs fixing.

    Yeah I knew what you meant I was just trying to see for certain how old the battery is. Turned out it was 2011 so had it replaced.

    That's a decent life for a battery! Does the warning still pop up with the new battery?
    Good luck getting it sorted!

    doing well on that battery, will need a good run too make sure new battery fully charged
    if you have the ABS/ESP fault stay on (after new fully charged battery installed) usually left hand speed sensor or rear loom (common faults)
