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

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
if you have warranty...take it straight to a dealer...but it sound like a wheel speed sensor

Re: ESP Problem
I do not think that electronic throttle control and wheel speed sensors are related

Re: ESP Problem
Yes- But the first light to come on is the ETC light- then the esp disabled light
