SOURCE: esc code showedxd upon dash board of card and

It isnt real serious. could easily just be a loose wire or connection. It is very repairable. I dont know the techs there but I do know that we here are sent to schools that gm teaches on every aspect of the gm vehicles. Yours should just be a minor repair being it is brand new. My guess is that it is more from just sitting on the lot and will not be hard to repair. Even if they have to replace parts your vehicle should be the same as it was when you purchased it.

SOURCE: How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages

I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.

Hello and welcome. the engine reduce power waraning is the key to the other problems. this is normally a problem with the electronic throttle system. the engine control module disables the traction control system when it detects a engine problem, in your case a problem with the electronic throttle system. you shouldnt drive with this concern. this is normally covered under the vehicles 100,000 mile warranty. you need to conteact your nearest dealer for help

SOURCE: the abs light is on

the abs light is on because it is telling you that the abs system has a fault in one of the sensors, also with the light on it means that the abs is disabled. the traction control and esc are on because they are linked to the abs

2008 Chevy HHR warning on Dash says "SERVICE ESC"


When you figure it out let me know! I drive an HHR as a service vehicle it does the same thing with an activation of the brakes in the front to "correct" a problem that is not there. About a year ago it had an engine code that indicated the intake valve timing solenoid was not working correctly, I got a new one from NAPA and replaced it. For whatever reason (I have found no connection between the two systems) the "Service ESC" problem has nearly disappeared. The message and associated front end shutter would occur 3 or 4 times a month but since replacing the solenoid it has only occurred 1 or 2 times.

Why do esc, traction, and engine lights turn on?


Check the engine codes first. Some codes will shut down the ESC and traction. Then Traction codes will shut down ESC. With out codes we just guess.

What causes the ESC light off light to come on in 2009 Kia Sorento LX?


You need to have the car scanned for fault codes to begin the diagnosis. Guessing what the actual cause might be in your case and just replacing parts is not a sound approach. Take it to KIA service or an independent familiar with KIA models.

It may just be an ESC sensor on the car that needs replacing due to failure or it could be something more significant. You might now get an ABS warning light as well if you don't have it already.

Your car is still perfectly driveable without the ESC in operation. It is just that you won't have the stability control assistance if you over cook it when driving the car too hard for the road surface conditions. If your drive sensibly for the road conditions experienced, and have decent tires fitted, you should not activate the ESC in any event (when it is working normally).

ESC and Traction Control light comes on 2011 HHR LS


Sounds like your brake fluid is low, or one of the wheel speed sensors is dead.

ESC and Traction Control light comes on and low power with my 2011 HHR LS


You will need to find the trouble code for malfunctioning wheel speed sensor. The Powertrain control module thinks that there is a wheel spinning or slipping, which in turns retards ignition timing to limit the slip. It could be a bad sensor or a broken wire harness. Some parts houses can give you the code, but you will either have to take it in to a Certified Technician, or diagnose it yourself if you are qualified.
