Cruise & ESP Visit workshops? Has spell-check auto-corrected something the wrong way?
If you mean a cruise control and Electronic Stability Program error message or idiot light, then I've never had the cruise control warning light appear while driving in high winds. Partly because I take cruise control off in high winds and go to full manual control.
There are two different ESP indicator lights. The first is a triangle with an exclamation point, and that tells you the ESP has successfully
performed selective braking of one or more wheels to help stop you from drifting in a direction other than the one you're steering. The second is a vehicle icon with wavy tire tracks, and that one tells you that the ESP has failed
to do its job.
The first one is a fair indication that it's time to slow down, because you're driving faster than conditions dictate and the computer has to intervene to keep you on the road. The second one means that it's time to pull over and park, because there's not enough traction to control the vehicle safely even with computer assistance.
