My VW 2015 EOS works great but since my last tire rotation, the ESC Stabilization Control Error appears while drive on dry roads at a constant speed. Engine slows, cannot accelerate. Must pull off the road, shut off the engine and restart. Everything works well for many trips, then it happens again. What is causing this error message?

After first incident, someone suggested my battery was bad, so replaced the battery. But problem persists.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Have you had the car checked for codes? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 29 at 17:50
  • No, haven't checked codes. Someone suggested to replace the ABS wheel sensors. – Char Mar 29 at 18:44

    It's hardly ever a good idea to change sensors without a diagnosis. Most of the time the costs are really high. Getting the codes read can point to things like speed sensor faults or wheel size variations etc. If a light is on there are codes stored. Once you get them post them here for more help. – Jupiter Mar 29 at 19:57
  • Hooked up a scanner and found one code. "Communication problem with transmission control module." Any suggestions?? – Char Jun 3 at 16:36
