Yes Rain, ice, snow, or a burn out will cause the ESP to engage. It engages when the tires spin or lose traction and the computer kicks in the ESP to stop the loss of traction by applying the brakes to affected wheel or wheels. You can disable it by hitting the ESP button but I wouldnt for normal driving it really does help....now if your at a drag strip then yea ya might.

I'm guessing you were driving on the highway, in the rain, with the cruise control on ???
