Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I have an 06 Grand Vitara that just hit 50,000 miles and the ESP light came on. I brought it in to the dealer and was told I needed a Hydraulic Control Module Assembly for over $1800! The part is not under warranty. The fault code was C1028. Any suggestions? I am thinking of trading it in being that the KBB value is only around $7000
I have the same problem, my 2006 has less than 50,000 miles and light is on....does it really matter, or is the light just somethings that comes on

If this is only on shen the car is in motion make sure you have the same size tyres on all around. Different size tyres will cause it to think some wheels are rotating too fast and skidding.

I believe that was the same problem we had with our 2007 Grand Vitara at 70k. After some research we found there was a recall for a bad passenger seat sensor and it would cause that code. We called our local dealer and they checked the computer and our vehicle never had the recall fixed so we took it in and they installed the seat bottom for free and it took care of the code.

Light on,what does that mean, stuck on, or comes on sometimes(normal) we cant guess that.
does it reset each keyon,? or stays on full time
did you use a real scan tool and log all DTC errors, seems not !
got to an independent shop, and ASE shop, (pros)
get them to diagnosis this, the lamp can come on for many reasons ,read the operators guide yet?: no really.
driving on slippery surfaces.
wrong tires, slick tires, wrong size as poster stated, on one tire,
bad brakes, ,this be first, for sure,,
abs failures. ?
id get the brakes at 100% pads etc, and make sure rotors
are not cracked or warped and that the caliper pins are free sliding
and not sticking, and there are no ABS faults, !!!!
then purge the system (i do this every year, as Dot3/4 is hydroscopic,) purge it per FSM steps, (total bleed)
make sure abs sensors are not, damaged, (hit,or packed in mud)
then drive it .
find a ASE shop, they will not "frraauud you" or "build a ticket"
