TRY THIS.
Reinitialize the system. Close all doors. Start the engine and apply the brake. Turn steering to full left lock and hold for two seconds, turn to right lock for 2 seconds, return to center. Repeat that procedure a couple of times. Move car forward and/or backward at least 30 feet. If there is no reset DTC and no stored or registered DTC, the MIL should go out.

Vacuum leak from brake booster. If you hear a sucking noise when you press the brake pedal replace it. Another way to check it is to place truck in gear set e-brake press brake pedal repeatedly and see if idle goes up and down. DO NOT PRESS GAS PEDAL DURING TEST.

Yellow warning indicator lamp of a tringle with an excalmation point in the center and a counterclockwise arrow arround the triangle ---what does it mean?


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!

Two sensors are provided for engine starting authorization: The first one is placed on the automatic gearbox shift selector electronic module, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the shift knob is placed in park - "P" position, or in neutral - "N" position. Only now you can take out the ignition key from the ignition switch barrel. The second one is the brake pedal switch placed above brake pedal in the pedals bracket, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the brake pedal is depressed. Only now it is possible to cranking the engine by the electrical starter motor.

BAS/ ESP light on the dash bord stays on all time the car engine is running


The BAS stands for Brake Assist System, don't remember what ESP stands for.
But the first thing to do is make sure the brake lights go on when you hit the pedal.
If not, then replace the brake light switch above the pedal.
If that is not it, it could be many things, such as a bad lateral acceleration switch.
