Have the car scanned at AutoZone for codes in the computer (it's free - a dealer will charge you). Post the codes here and I can help you. There are a ton of things that could cause the problem you have - the codes are essential to figuring out the problem.

SOURCE: My nissan micra 2003, malfunction indicator light

OH YES !!!! u have to get ur car computer scanned right away. Theres surely a problem on the way, and before it gets worse, get it scanned and u will easily get to know what needs to be changed. So instead of changing 3-4 things when its gets worse, its better to change only the thing which is required right now.

DO IT RIGHT AWAY !!!

ABS, Parking break, and ESC light all stay on


On many vehicles, there is a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) that is used with the ABS system. If it fails, the ABS and BRAKE lights will come. As I don't have ESC, I can't vouch for it being involved, but it is related. Usually replacement of the defective sensor will clear all fault indications.

Abs light stays on and the esc indicator light also but when you start it it shows it off


the operators guide shows what these mean and what to do.
lost that>? i have one, and 08 JK.
pages 105 to 116
it resets each drive. the opr guide says that, and does.
its a very complex system, you should RTM.

ill quote your missing pages.
ABS:
If the light remains on after start-up or comes on and
stays on at road speeds, it may indicate that the ABS has
detected a malfunction or has become inoperative. The
system reverts to standard non-anti-lock brakes.
ESP:/TCS
The ESP/TCS Indicator Light (located in the instrument
cluster), starts to flash as soon as the tires lose traction
and the ESP system becomes active. The ESP/TCS Indicator
Light also flashes when TCS is active. If the
ESP/TCS Indicator Light begins to flash during acceleration,
ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle
as possible. Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to
the prevailing road conditions


is this clear? if not ask more, questions , more specific and we can peel the onion deep as you want.

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.

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

ESC light. What does it mean


I'm sorry to say that Michael Richardson is incorrect. ESC actually stands for Electronic Stability Control. It monitors the wheels for slippage, and will reduce power (or even apply braking, according to Kia) to a particular wheel if it detects that it has lost traction. For example, say you're driving in the rain and your front passenger wheel hits a puddle and starts to hydroplane. ESC will cut the power to that wheel so that it rolls freely until you get out of the puddle. As it's doing that your ESC light flashes. If you are driving on ice and no wheels have good traction it may stay lit and not allow you to accelerate rapidly because it can control the throttle as well. You can turn off ESC with a button on your dashboard which will result in a yellow ESC Off indicator.

If your ESC Off light is on all the time regardless of the dashboard button or weather conditions, you probably have a problem with your ESC system, which could be as simple as a faulty brake light switch. Kia should be able to diagnose it quickly.

ESC light on/Now it says ESC OFF


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.
