Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 19 days ago.

Dear customer, normally the solution is to wash the unit, giving more importance to the region of the wheel arches and the braking system. In case the Electronic Stability Control warning light is still on, we can try to disconnect and clean the brake pedal sensor with extreme care. Similarly, non-activation of the Electronic Stability Control may be due to a partial failure of the brake pedal sensor or the steering wheel rotation monitoring. This is easily remedied by depressing the pedal and moving the steering wheel to the right or left. On some models the problem may be due to an irregular electrical load, so the sensor can only be permanently reset by clearing the fault code from diagnostic equipment.
