ABS ESP sensor replacement

 

KNOW HOW about ESP Sensor.

Below are the key facts you need to know when it comes to replacing the ESP sensor on your vehicle.

What is ESP Sensor, and what does it do?

In nearly all critical driving situations, the electronic stability programme (ESP) supports the driver. It contains the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and traction control functions. This senses and effectively counteracts car skidding movements. This significantly improves driving safety.

Electronic stability control (ESC), also known as Electronic Stability Program (ESP) or Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), is a fully automated technology that enhances the stability of a vehicle by sensing and reducing traction.

As ESP senses lack of steering control, it applies the brakes immediately to help "steer" the car where the driver wants to go. Braking is automatically applied independently to tyres, such as the front wheel to avoid oversteer, or the rear inner wheel to counter understeer. Some ESP devices decrease engine power before control is restored.

 

Signs of faulty ESP Sensor are.

 The ESP collaborates with the ABS which in some cases makes it difficult to find the root cause of the problem immediately. When the ESP begins to fail, you can start to experience accelerating problems. Here are few signs of a faulty esp sensor.

  • ABS or traction control light displaying on the dashboard.
  • Loss of traction while driving on the slippery road surface.
  • It takes longer to stop the car.
  • Unresponsive brake pedal.


When should you consider replacing the ESP sensor?

The ESP sensors relay valuable information to the ABS device, which helps it to retain the stability and traction of your car on less grippy surfaces. Wet and snowy highways are your brakes ' biggest enemy, and your ABS device is the only protection against losing traction other than using winter tyres.

Furthermore, if you find you lose control while braking on wet roads, it indicates that the ESP sensors in your car are not working the way they should. In times like this, it is crucial to book your vehicle for a further check.
