Flashing ESP light when stationary ?!


ClioSport Club Member
This seems odd, but when raising the revs in neutral to noise test the exhaust I noticed the ESP light flashing when over 4500rpm, it was more of a flicker than a good solid regular flash.

Plugged in the RSTuner which showed a 'vehicle speed sensor fault' in the memory.
It makes sense that the two are related, but never heard of the ESP flashing when the car is stationary.

I think on a 182 the vehicle speed comes from the ABS sensors, but is there any way of narrowing it down?
Does it use all 4? Some online say nearside front is used for vehicle speed.
Note the ABS light is not on.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks Andy
