Risk
It is possible that one or more of the pump pistons in the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) control device may become stuck. A pump piston that becomes stuck leads to diminished pressure build-up/pressure reduction in the hydraulic system. The Electronic Stability Programme's regulating capability is thus restricted.
