Hoping someone knows the answer,

My 2014 4WD dacia duster has started intermittently showing = red electrical warning light and orange esp light both on together. (Think that's what they are) Will try upload a photo.

When they come on, the car "beeps" & then turns itself off, even when driving!!

If you wait a few minutes & restart car it will either turn on and drive normally without the warning lights sometimes for a few days or .... the warning lights remain on & car will drive but there is a loss of power & won't go over 70mph.

Has anyone had any luck solving this issue or what it could mean.

Not sure if connected but 2 of the 3 occasions happened on a roundabout & 3rd time was after going over speedbump a few minutes after going around roundabout

It looks like this might be same issue in previous thread but didn't look like answer was found ,


(Did take it to a garage but because the warning lights weren't on when i got there they wouldn't look at it & said it whatever it was had probably reset itself. It's since happened twice again over several days so waiting to go into different garage.)

hi Robin , ,no I have not got the solution I have ,been to two separate diagnostic centres and dealer Arnold Clarke,the last time just before the start of the epidemic .This started just before the end of the warranty period and clarkes replaced the fuel filter .After a few hundred miles went again .Have had glo plugs replaced ,fuel system , checked,turbo ,all to no avail.
I am considering taking it back to Clarkes but after the first visit they wanted extra £ 400 plus to finish the diagnosis ,seemed a bit steep as they were unable to guarantee success .If I find a solution will ley you know

This is supposed to be an electrical fault with the ESP which is part of the ABS, a box in front of the gear stick that contains accellerometers and a steering wheel position sensor. As far as I know the fuel filter has no electrical contacts and why would glow plug, fuel system and turbo faults be an ESP fault?

I seem to recall that the red light and squiggly line is an electrical fault warning light.
As a side note. If the abs sensor rings on the wheels get full of crud or rust the signal is disrupted which may cause the vehicle to go into a limp mode.

So took it back into garage again with the warning lights on & they plugged it into computer & then replaced the fuel filters last week.

So far its been running ok & warning lights haven't come back on yet (although sometimes intermittently my power steering doesn't feel quite right).

Fingers crossed but it sounds like from other posts that it might only be a temporary solution.

Both the electric power steering and the ESP use a steering wheel position sensor. I would guess it's the same one.
