'Power Steering, ABS, EPS Malfunction' Error message

20 posts in this topic

Have anyone encountered similar error message?

 

I came across this message 3 days ago when I was driving off in morning. I can feel that my steering wheel became very heavy and needed a lot of strength just to steer the car as I was driving inside the MSCP when this happened. So I stopped my car, turn off and on again and the error message did not appear again and the power steering is back to normal.

 

After a few more drives, the message didn't appear again but I was afraid that something is not right so I checked with C&C service advisor. He told me that there might be a few possibilities for this error message to appear which are related.

 

Steering angle sensor

Wheel speed sensor

Hydraulic brake unit control module

 

He mentioned that the most likely cause is the wheel speed sensor.

 

He recommend me to send my car in for diagnosis which I'm planning to do it tomorrow.

 

Anyway, just like to see if anyone has encountered similar error message before and what's the cause?

Went to Chip Soon and it turns out to be the ESP module. Got to change it as the error keeps coming back daily. Damage is 3K.

Hi Yipcp,

 

I got the same problem recently that "Power Steering, ABS, EBD, EPS, Run flat indicator, malfunction at same time".  My power steering is very heavy now.  May I know had you resolved this problem after you changed the ESP module?

 

Thanks & best regards

Ben

Since all at it, I gt similar yet diff issues. Upon whacking the car full throttle and when kick down switch is activated, I gt 2 errors. "run flat indicator inoperative" and "esp inoperative see owners manual" Thi happens only when kick down switch is activated... What might cause the issues..

@fiqueudrue - for my W211, it was the piece of plastic behind the brake pedal that caused all these errors ($20 fix IIRC). I am sure after you kick down, you will brake hard. Maybe that is why the error popped up.

Hi all, 

Just to check, if I only had the ESP unavailable light on at times and the car slow to max 50km/hr. I will have to stop the car and restart the car then everything will be back to normal. Is it similar to this thread and how do you guys manage to let the workshop read the error if it disappeared after you restart the car? Im current driving a W204 pre facelift.

The message should be logged in the ECU.. so even if it's gone, they historical record can still be read with the right diagnostic software

Hello, i 1st posted this problem with my car in 2015. I've still not changed it.  Here is what i did.  i heard ppl saying about wheel senor and stuff, so i went to a car wash, got the guys to 'jet' the rear wheels(inside) from behind, the next day, its working again. had this issue again recently, and i did the same thing, and it worked again. Touch wood it wont happen again.

 

whether its really the washing of the sensor or whatever that solves the problem, i cannot say. Maybe its pure luck..

 

But u can try. If it dosent work, your car still gets clean. :)
