Electronic Stability Control (or ESC) is a new crash avoidance system found on many vehicles. Unlike air bags, which only help you during a collision, ESC will help you to avoid loss of control that could lead to a collision.
ESC is designed to help you stay in control of your vehicle during an emergency manoeuvre, such as when you need to swerve or brake suddenly to avoid an obstacle.
ESC monitors your steering versus the direction of the vehicle. When they do not match, ESC will automatically actuate the brakes at one or more wheels for short periods of time, reduce engine power, or both. If at all possible, ESC will help you maintain control of your vehicle.
ESC is automatically "ON" whenever you start your vehicle. Some vehicles have an ESC Off switch; this switch is needed to disable ESC during certain situations such as when you are stuck in snow. If your vehicle has an ESC Off switch, refer to the vehicle owner's manual for more information. Unless you manually shut ESC Off, it will remain active until you turn the engine off.

    This just happened to our 2009 Hyundai Sonata. We were able to defeat the shifter lock and drive it to the dealer. They recognized the problem as a faulty brake switch and had us going again in 20 minutes.

Gear shift stuck i n park, what do i do?


Hi,
Try releasing your parking brake and having someone push or rock your car. Sometimes the gearbox gets stuck in Park if the car moves after you put the car in Park and let the car roll a bit before applying the handbrake. It could also be a fault with the gearbox itself.
Its also possible that the locking tab mechanism (that gets relesed when you press the button on your auto gear shift) has jammed. If you can get it out of Park do not put the car back into Park ,but rather put it in Neutral after you have finished driving around etc and use the hand brake when parking. At least you wont be stuck in Park until you get it to the repair shop. Note that your car can roll in Neutral, especially if your parking brakes are worn, so take extra care when parking ie point your wheels toward the kerb when parking on any hills or slopes.
Any time your gearbox gets stuck its a fair bet that you need to get your gearbox inspected by an authorized repairer.
Good luck,
Steve (Melbourne, Australia)

My car wont move out of park and the braks lights arent working.


my ford taurus did this to me too.... your car wont move out of park because it might be the neutral safety switch because your brake light connector piece might have come undone...
now first off the brakes (my switch was above my brake pedal) and just make sure its clipped in and then your neutral safety switch should go of and you can put it into gear.
if you cant find the brake thing to see if its unplugged just turn your key slightly on before all your dash lights come on and put the car into neutral and then start your car and you can put it into gear.
