ESP Problem

I have a 2005 GC Lmited and the ESP activates just driving along . It cuts the throttle out and I have to pull over , shut it off and restart it. It may go a couple of days or a couple of miles before it happens again. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: ESP Problem

have you pulled any codes? Sounds like a wheels speed sensor went bad.....but cant be for sure till you pull the codes. You can do the key dance... on off on off on off very quickly or have them pulled at a local auto parts store like adavance auto

Re: ESP Problem

The light that came on today when the throttle cut out was the ETC light. I wonder if that could be my problem and not the esp?

Re: ESP Problem

Jeeped,

Is there also a flashing red lightning bolt on the upper left gauge cluster? If so that's limp mode.

Re: ESP Problem

Yes- But if you stop , shut off ignition and then restart it will operate properly for a while and then act up again

Re: ESP Problem

Re: ESP Problem

I do not think that electronic throttle control and wheel speed sensors are related
