SOURCE: ESC light came on when driving - then check engine light

Likley there is a misfire in one of the cylinders. Usually due to worn out sparkplugs or wires. A check by the local mechanic, using his/her computor will pinpoint the problem. Or go to your local auto supply store & purchase the little computor to connect to your car computor (under dash at steering wheel). This will allow you to turn off the light. Cost is about $170.00 (Can.)
Hope this helps!

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.

Hi therte:Other light, like Check Engine is turn on there? Definetivelly, your vehicle will needs to be scanned for the trouble code to determine the cause of the problem to make the light come on.
If you visit Autozone or AutoShop with OBD scanner reader, they can make this job for free (sometimes), note the code number stored there and give us.
Hope helps.

The check engine light is on my 1995 Saab 900s. I can not find a techician with the correct scanner.How can I turn off the light?

There are three ways to reset a check engine light.

1. Disconnect the battery, wait approximately 30 minutes, reconnect the battery. This resets the cars computer which also reset the check engine light. On newer OBD (on-board diagnostic) compliant vehicles this usually does not work. See step 2.

2. Reset using an OBD II reader. When you hook an OBD II code reader up to your vehicle, you can reset the computer using the code reader.

3. Fixing the problem. Generally the check engine light comes on for a reason. Usually it is emission related (sensors, gas cap) or electrical (faulty wiring). In this case the way to reset the check engine light is to fix the problem

My check engine and ESC lights are on in my 2007 Kia Sedona LX. Code P054 - likely cause? Does it have to be a dealer fix? Car's performance doesn't appear to be affected, handles great thusfar,...

Well, I would like to help you but P054 is not a valid code. There are not enough digits for it to be a valid OBD code. I would recommend reading the code again and make sure you post it correctly if you want help with it.

As for the Check Engine light and the Electronic Speed Control (ESC) light being on, this means that there is a malfunction in one of the many systems that are monitored by your Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM has also disabled your ESC (A.K.A. cruise control) for whatever reason.

It should be noted that although the problem does not seem to be affecting the way the vehicle drives, it is very likely that whatever is wrong is going to destroy some high-dollar parts like the catalytic converters if you don't get it fixed.

As far as getting it fixed at the dealer...It all depends on EXACTLY what is wrong. Most OBD fault codes can be serviced by anyone with the correct information for the code involved, providing they have the equipment and knowledge to properly diagnose the code. Codes that involve reprogramming of the PCM to fix are usually better to have done by the dealer. In these cases, the reprogramming can be done under emmissions warranties for free if the vehiclle meets certain criteria.

On my way to work the esc and check engine came on. I felt the car lose power so I pulled over. I pressed the esc button a few times and the light turned off. I then continued to work and the car ran just...

Take it to a parts store like an auto zone and have them scan the pcm (powertrain control module) for any codes. It will tell you what is wrong and you can take care of the problem. The scam is free. Hope this will help you.

ABS/ESC light and check engine light on

esc is electronic stability control. without the abs sensor working the esc can not work proper as it can not read the wheel speed.
it has nothing to do with the stop lamp

Check Engine light and ESC OFF light

I had an issue where the ABS and ESC lights would go on and wouldn't turn off unless I restarted the car (sometimes they would light up again even if I had restarted). This was because the speed sensor was broken on my back tire. After the dealership replaced it, (under the 36,000 mile warranty) all was good and I have yet to see the lights come back on.

Issue: ABS & ESC would not turn off
Solution: Replaced broken speed sensor on tire

Check Engine Light

I had the problem with the engine light and the ESC light on. At the same time the car would not accelerate. I disconnected and reconnected the battery and works fine now.
