Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

I was getting the Service ESP message displayed, originally at full lock but more recently when it was wet. On bad days I'd get the message and a Red brake warning, the park brake wouldn't set and the trip distance blanked. An engine restart cleared the problems.

I took it to BPV in Slough and they were intrigued enough to investigate properly and soon found that just moving the cable on the right wishbone was enough. Hence I made the decision to replace both left and right sensors. The cable and sensor are one part, and, although it doesn't look difficult to replace, it would take a fair amount of time without a lift, with it not to bad at all the job was done in under an hour.

For anyone with an NG 9-5, beware, there are several different sensors, I counted 5 possible parts. The length for my car was 740mm, the shorter ones won't be any good and the longer ones will obviously be a problem but check before buying. WIS isn't much help and they aren't in my copy of EPC. I contacted BillJ and he can find the right part from the VIN/Registration so I would recommend buying from him if you are in any way unsure of what you need.
