turning on and off like fan. Now car want
crank. I unhooked battery hooked back up
cranked wouldn't stay cranked. ESP light is

disconnect the battery terminals and leave it disconnected for 15-20 minutes. While the cables are detached touch them together to drain the last of the power from the cars system and reboot your cars pc. Should fix yea right up. If that does not work put your key in the ignition then put the key to the on position for 10-12 minutes. after the time is up put it to power off then try and crank it.

check the battery level. anything lower then 11 volts and your car will go wonky.
