ESP light on

- Dorothy Del­strain Spain · Nissan Motor Company · Iceland · Tonga · Somalia · Belgium · Belarus · Nissan Qashqai

The ESP lights come on when my Nis­san Qashqai 1.5 K9K 2WD diesel is started with­out mov­ing. Two fault codes are show­ing: ‘C1130’ and ‘C1132’. I’ve checked the sig­nal from the wheel sen­sors and they are OK. The only clue I’ve got is that it could be a blocked pipe from the ex­haust man­i­fold to a sen­sor.

You have not men­tioned any lack of power or driv­ing prob­lems, so it’s un­likely that the ESP light would be re­lated to a blocked pipe from the ex­haust man­i­fold to a sen­sor. The elec­tronic sta­bil­i­sa­tion pro­gramme is not nor­mally af­fected by en­gine man­age­ment faults.

Both of the codes you have are re­lated to ei­ther an ABS mo­d­ule or an ECM fault. I would sus­pect it’s more likely the ABS mo­d­ule has failed, how­ever Au­to­data in­forms me that there was a soft­ware up­date for the ECM in re­la­tion to the fault you are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. For this rea­son, my first course of ac­tion would be to con­tact the main dealer with re­gard this up­date. If it has al­ready been car­ried out or if it doesn’t re­solve the prob­lem, I would send the ABS unit to ei­ther ecutest­ing.com or bbare­man.com to be tested and re­paired if re­quired.
