Just a long shot, but i have seen in another post :"faulty, handbrake ,ESP/ASR system" that at least in that car the fault was a dodgy EGR.
I have some errors on the EGR, i have not listed them here as thought werent related, but at least 5 errors, have to plug it again to check but some where stuck open, stuck closed, stuck midway, and more.

Just a small question, whats the correct readings for the yaw sensor ? Mine says something 0.5 m/s stationary.
It says it calibrates but still giving that reading

Give it time. Sometimes people who have the right knowledge may not be logging in for a while. You are not being ignored.

If you have any additional error codes please post them up, so they can be looked up.

I don't think that's quite fair or true to be honest. It's called having a life.

You've had 12 responses in your thread from me alone, including a wiring diagram, parts information and code descriptors all on the same day of posting! We are all volunteers here giving our time and knowledge freely. Personally, I have been dealing with a fraud issue over the weekend as well as helping other members out in between all that.

I suggest you get the ALL your car's diagnostic codes up so we can see everything that is coming up as faulty instead of little snippets of info in separate posts - as it would be more helpful to see all the faults in context.

Yes, i have noted that your alias is pretty true, you seem the only one who cares a bit, thanks for that, tried the egr, but no luck yet , waiting for the yaw sensor as been looking through other posts as have seen that strange readings from there can interfere with the SWS, will see what happens when arrives

That's probably a fair enough observation. Can't imagine anyone else does care a bit about your car problems. What an attitude!

Some things to consider are that forum staff (I am not staff) have access to more details information than most of the forum members, and that this problem may not have been encountered by many other C3 owners. Allowing for these, that could explain why only a couple of people have responded to the request for help.

There are 2 diagrams one for the ABS system (that I posted earlier) and this one below for the stability control (ESP):

The diagrams do not show ALL the connectors on every diagram as it would be too complex to read - so only the relevant connections for the system being looked at.

So I think this is the one you need for the ESP system - the other one being for vehicles without the ESP system and ABS only. Sorry for the confusion.
