SOURCE: ABS light & ESC light

I just went to the Hyundai dealer for the same problem. I have an 06 Sonata GLS with 54k. The ESC light and ABS light would come on intermittenly. After starting the car, they would go away but would come on occassionally. Anyway, the tech checked the brake circuit and found one of the brake sensor was bad and replaced it under warranty. It costed me nothing.

SOURCE: abs light comes on & stays on. no brake one

Your brake pedal needs adjusting! And your brakes need to be replaced! Did the people @ midas look for any air bubbles while they replaced the Master cylinder? Did they get them out? Did they even look at the brakes? All of them?

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.

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.

Ecs light on 2011 HHR LS and low power

ECS is electronic controlled stability. It works with traction control when it is slippery and it does cause what you describe. It reduces the power to the engine and drive train. IT could be from ice build up on wheel sensors.

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.

The abs light is on and I want to know is it still safe to drive? and what does service esc mean and service traction ison in my hhr is it still safe to drive while Im waiting to get it fixed

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
