Electronic Stability Control systems are a part of the automotive world today. Every tech out there will experience an issue with an ESC system at some point. ESC systems can’t be ignored. These systems involve more than just a few sensors, in fact almost all aspects of the car while moving or at rest can be part of the function of the stability control system. Steering angle, wheel speed sensors, what direction is the car moving, PCM, TCS, and the ABS system are all involved in the overall control of the vehicle under certain conditions. This intervention or “computer controlled” braking on today’s cars brings the car back under the drivers control if and when the driver needs that extra help to correct a situation. Check out this Quick Quiz and see if you are stable enough in your knowledge of ESC systems.
