It is an ECM (electronic computer module) issue. You have either a sensor failure or an actual mechanical problem that has been detected by the computer and your OBD (on board diagnostics) is attempting to identify it. See OBD code. Since your ESP light is also on, chances are the problem is electronic and deals with detecting traction problems while driving.
Depending on the age of the vehicle, it could as simple as an O2 sensor or fuel filter... Or a spendy computer part.
A reputable shop can scope the problem and identify the OBD code, then you will know. Good luck!

Traction control light comes on then triggers abs and ESP-BAS light

You need the system scanned by the dealer for stored fault codes.

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.
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.
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.

2008 wrangler. abs, esp and traction control light staying on. checked brake fluid and fuses

Check first the third eye brake light. does it work? okay the problem reside in a ABS sensor make sure it is hook up or if you recently did a brake job it didnt get contaminated. When the ABS signal is interfered with ESP,Traction is disabled. One or some of the wheel speed sensor is disconnected or is being interfered with. This is common for a recent brake job if any occured

2003 vw jetta 1.8 ESP light stays on, no traction control

The problem is almost certainly NOT the MAF sensor.
This problem can be caused by any one of the following
A faulty or dirty ABS wheel sensor...situated at each one of the 4 hubs
although the ABS light would usually illuminate if one of these sensors is faulty.....but NOT always

A faulty ESP switch The switch may be stuck in the open position, which WILL illuminate the ESP light and turn OFF your traction control.

Some models are also fitted with a YAW sensor, which detects side slip while driving. If this goes faulty it will also Illuminate the ESP light.
This sensor is bolted to the center of the floor panel..under the rear seat.
So as to save time and money..You should have the OBD codes scanned. This will pin-point the problem in minutes.

All the best

On my passat ESP warning is coming on. i have changed yaw rate sensor allready and ESP warning light is still coming on. what should i do? its Passat tdi 130, 2004. Thanx

You should have the OBD codes checked. This will determine the exact fault. The ESP light will sometimes come on if there is a problem with the ABS or with the steering angle sensor.
Good luck with this

My 2002 vw passat esp light comes on when you turn the engine on

Hi Amanda
I have come up against this problem a few times before.
If the ABS. light is NOT on, and its the ESP light only that is on...your problem may well be a faulty Yaw sensor. This unit is fitted to the floor panel under the rear the centre. Another problem (although not all that common) is a faulty ESP switch. You should have an OBD code reading done to make sure. If a new YAW sensor must be fitted, the car must be driven with a full steering lock in both directions (left and right) at a speed over 20 Km per hour after fitting. If this is not done the light will remain on, even though it will now drive ok.
As for the price of this unit...Here in Ireland it costs around 140 euro. Hopefully its cheaper where you are. So better to have the codes read first.
I hope this is of some help to you.
Good luck with it
