I have an 06 Dodge Magnum. ESP/BAS light

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it id indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

On my 2006 dodge magnum my ESP/bas light came on

The first thing to do is have the dealer check for trouble codes.
This is the warning light for the traction control system.
There is a long list of possible causes, so you need the codes first.

What does this mean on my 2005 dodge magnum warning light "esp bass" and check engine light

the esp stands for electronic stability program,you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, these codes will help in the repair,you may have a bad speed sensor or the check engine light may have shut down the esp,when the engine detects a problem it shuts down the esp because it feels that the esp cant operate correctly when the engine is not running correctly,so the first thing is to scan for the codes, hope this helps, good luck,

ETC, ESP BAS and engine light are all on

It doesn't sound like you did anything to hurt your car so you can calm down. I do have an idea that has worked for me and it certainly will not hurt your car. Sometimes when you start unpluging things in your car It might get mad. Dont laugh, think about it. It does have a hart (engine) and a brain (computer). Anyway Disconect your battery (negitive side first). Then let it sit for at least 5 minutes before reconecting the battery. This will reset the "brain" and it does work in some cases.

Good Luck

You may have a poor ground connection to the cluster, most likely the cluster connector is at fault, pull it out and reconnect it, it is at the back of the instrument cluster, also the Body Control Module can cause this. Have a quick test run to check for any trouble codes in the BCM
