The ESC Off light comes on and pushing the ON/OFF switch does not put it out. If I shut the car off and re start, the dash light goes out sometimes; May return the next time I start the car..I've heard that the problem has something to do with the brake sensors. People usually notice that the brake lights go crazy as well.My 2009 is in the shop right now for my check engine light. My ESC light is also coming on as well. They ran the diagnostic and the only code that showed up was a faulty crankshaft sensor. I'm wondering if that is affecting the ESC. I know when the ESC comes on I get hesitation before it. That might be the crankshaft sensors doing. They said no other codes came up.This problem was recalled back in 2007-2008 and is presently being recalled on some vehicles. This appears to be a common problem with Hyundais who refuse to address the problem unless the cars are recalled. Please write the National Car Safety so that they can request a recall. Without these complaints, the recall will not occur and everyone will be paying out of pocket for a manufacturing defect.

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).

How do i turn back on esc


The ESC light will go out when the ABS system is repaired. The skid may have damaged a speed sensor or some other component causing both lights to stay on.

What would cause Check engine light, ESC off light, and ABS light to come on?


You'll need to have someone scan the engine and body computers to get the trouble codes. The ESC and ABS could be on because of a problem connected to the engine computer, or they could have their own issues in addition to the engine. All three systems work together.

Sorry, that should have been esc light on 2010 Hyundai Elantra


The brake light recall you got in the mail should fix the ESC light.

HYUNDAI IS RECALLING 532,633 MY 2006-2007 ACCENT, ENTOURAGE, SONATA, MY 2007 AZERA, ELANTRA AND SANTA FE, MY 2005-2007 TUCSON AND MY 2007-2008 VERACRUZ VEHICLES. THE STOP LAMP SWITCH IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES MAY MALFUNCTION. A MALFUNCTIONING STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY CAUSE THE BRAKE LIGHTS TO NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED OR MAY CAUSE THE BRAKE LIGHTS TO REMAIN ILLUMINATED WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS RELEASED. A STOP LAMP SWITCH MALFUNCTION MAY ALSO AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE BRAKE-TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK FEATURE SO THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTER WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE SHIFTED OUT OF THE PARK POSITION. IT MAY ALSO CAUSE THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) MALFUNCTION LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE, AND IT MAY NOT DEACTIVATE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED.

The stop lamp switch is used to judge if the acceleration system is abnormal. The stop lamp switch contains two switches monitored by the PCM. This is all covered at the dealer.

The stop lamp switch contains two switches monitored by the PCM. This will cause the issue you are having. It will illuminate the engine light also and cause the transmission to go into limp mode which is what's happening. Have replaced many for this same exact issue. This is what needs to be done next. The engine and ESC light come on together.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Dealing with a kia sorento esc off light randomly turning on which has almost caused me 2 accidents on the freeway. when the esc off light turns on my car loses power and i can't accelerate past 50mph....


We had the same problem. The dealer had to replace the gas pedle which caused the loss of power. The esc light still comes on and off on its own. I will be taking the car back to the dealer to resolve this issue soon.

The ESC off button of my kia rondo activates when brake pedal is pressed.


Rodos have an issue with the brake light switch which might cause the ESC light to turn on. Have the ABS system scanned, and if your car is still under warranty, then get the brake lights switch replaced.

SERVICE TRACTION/SERVICE ESC LIGHT COMES ON


Take it in to see which wheel is throwing the code. Some auto part stores let you use theirs for free. then check for corroded connectors or broken wires at the wheel bearings and speed sensors.
Clean corroded connections with a cleaner such as contax or acid wheel cleaner, then rinse and dry thoroughly and coat the female end of the connection with dielectric grease before reassembly.

Best of luck. These are GREAT cars!!!
