    Default 2007 Kia Sorento automatic

    ESP light came on, and now no turbo, and no 4x4!

    I did a quick Google search and encountered a response dated back in 2018 on 'Kia-forums.com' topic is ' ESP Off light on and 4WD not engaging ' - - - post # 5 in that thread has the relevant info.

    Thanks, I think I'll book it in for my mechanic to look at. It's a great car to drive, but this ESP light has been a problem.

    One thing it mentions is the ABS wheel speed sensor (?)

    Way too many fiddly bits that can go wrong in my opinion.

    Well, turns out a bush rat has built a nest and eaten some wiring...this maybe expensive.

    Bu**er!. Tracing the damage could be difficult, a specialist job is likely.

    Make enquiries re a second hand loom?

    It's a specialist job. The damage requires the removal of amongst other things the ABS module to get at it...oh for the days when the most complex bit of gear under the bonnet was the distributor.

    I wonder if that Kia had soy-based insulation on the under-hood wiring ? That stuff seems to attract the 'critters'
