I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

My esp/bas light stays on


the operators manual is clear on that, did you read that first?
it says "get the car serviced" clearly
if you work on cars, do you? thne we scan the systems with the scan tool first. to see if there are complex hard errors.
like the ABS sensors, (not bas) sensor dead. (ops a road hazard hit it and broke the wire there, dang.
then if no hard failures.
first is not ESP (that be last dead last)
the first is , the brake must work perfect if not , the ABS can not
work correctly with bad brakes.
so check fuses.
scan ABS for errors
then do a full brake inspection, takes me 2 hours. but my guess,
youve never done brakes, right,, your self?
not even a full inspection?
  1. leaks? (fluid)
  2. pads worn out?
  3. caliper pistons not sticking
  4. rotors not cracked, or wrecked, surfaces.
  5. caliper guide pins not seized. (they float free?)
  6. emg, brake not sticking on partially?
  7. wrong sized tires on car (or just one , omg)
  8. ABS sensor parts damaged at axles ends.?
  9. bad wheel bearing, seizing or loose.
etc... etc.... and more.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Bas light is on and ABS in a cicle light is on...what can I do?


check your brakes for one, and also make sure the fluid level is set to full,, with ABS systems you need to have a certified mechanic check the brakes,,

Hi, how are you? when the engine starts and after removing parking the ABS light sensor and the BAS light sensor goes on.. what does it mean ?


Hi there,

ABS: this is your Anti-lock Braking System.
BAS: this is your Brake Assist System.

The first thing I would suggest you check - press the brake pedal and confirm if your brake lights work. If not, then you have a faulty brake switch (on the brake pedal).

If lights DO work, then the next step is to have your Fault Codes read from your vehicle's computer - this step will identify which circuit/component has triggered these warning lights.

Note: It will take your local Dealership approx. 15mins to check these codes, so shouldn't cost much.


Cheers,

The ABS ,BAS& ASR lights keep coming up


ABS--BAS

Most likely cause is the 'stop lamp switch'
It is a electric switch located on the brake pedal inside the car, about half way up on the brake pedal.
Pretty cheap too, I think the switch is only like $25 bucks.
2 connectors on the switch and then it turns out.
hope that helps

Ford focus abs light dose not light up at all . ( 99-1.6.petrol)


read your owner manual to see when the BAS light should be on during "prove out." Sometimes the prove out is after the engine starts.
Also, if the ABS ever fails, you always still have regular power brakes.

You should go on a gravel road and slam on the brakes to se if the anti'lock still functions. You will hear the BAS motor run and the pedal pulse. good luck

Can't find a BAS light in the manual , there is however a ABS light , which is a antilock brake system warning light . Check your tire presures before you check with the toyota service people.
ABS systems monitor the speed of the rotation of the tires , if one is low , the car sees it as a problem.

hi there it sounds to me like the brake calipar is either loose or the brake pad has separated and if this happens it will also damage the abs sensor
