I think you mean ESP (Electronic Stability Program). The most common fault associated with this fault are the wheel speed sensors/reluctor ring but it's speculation without fault codes. You need to read the fault codes to see what is causing the light to turn on. If it's a wheel speed sensor issue, the fault code will indicate which wheel the fault is occuring on.

I hope I have answered your question, if you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Must I take it to a garage that has the star diagnostic machine or can I take it to any other garage?

You can take it to any garage that has a fairly decent diagnostic computer, main dealers are very expensive. The main suspect is a wheel speed sensor or ABS sensor as some people call it, if it is that then it's not an expensive repair.

If you are happy with my service, please rate it using the stars :) Thank you for using JA.
