ESP / TCS light on dash board (Solved)

Hi dear members of Antaraownersclub, I am one of who look for an Antara first time and think what a nice car, but after buy one... what a problematic car is... but still pretty it is a 2009 2.0 cdt 4x4 150 hp!!! Well I post here just in order help others and avoid spend a lot of money in changing a lot of parts of your car without need! The problem: two weeks ago three lights in dashboard from nothing ESP/TCS orange color plus engine light, after that very bad starting, and seems turbo doesn't work well just push after 2000 rpm, visit three mechanics, first said it was camshaft sensor, because it was off dtc in the scanner after buy a new one change and nothing, still the same error, but they dont charge me the sensor and put the old one, the second, insist it was the camshaft sensor and I buy a new one and nothing that one I didn't the devolution, 70 euros plus 20 work! Last one said the others didnt have good scanner tools and he have the best in the market bla bla bla, said the problem it is a clucth sensor and also a light brake sensor and also a throttle body, well I order a new clucth sensor and pay 30 euros for the sensor plus 30 for diagnostic, a friend of mine said that could be only a wiring problem or even just a fuse problem! And voilá it was just a blow fuse in the engine fuse box Fuse nº 2 (engine 2) I really dont know why it happens but that was the only problem I change the fuse and no more error and lights in the dashboard, I hope my experience help who have the same problem!
Greetings from portugal

Thanks for that. It's a reminder that maybe before we start spending money we should take a few minutes and check up on the simple things that we can manage like fuses before employing a mechanic.
