How does the ESP control the car during heavy awkward corning...? does it somehow stiffen up the suspensionBoth wrong.
The car with lines under it is the ESP switch. This is stability control. Not traction control. Traction control is where it stops the tyres spinning during acceleration. ESP keeps the car more stable during heavy and awkward cornering, heavy braking cornering etc.
The red light is an engine? Can't see.. it needs a look at ASAP by the dealer
