SOURCE: BAS/Esp light on with diagnostic symbol

Hi,
As you may know, modern automobiles (from the 1980's to present) have at least one computer controlling them. This computer (or computers) control the fuel to air mixture via either electronic fuel injection or a feedback carburetor. On the newer vehicles the computer also controls the ignition timing (That's when the spark plugs fire).
The newer a vehicle is,the more stuff the computer(s) control. The newest vehicles have the computer shifting the automatic transmission or transaxle as well as controlling spark and fuel mix. Many vehicles also have a climate control computer which controls the A/C and heat. Luxury cars often have vehicle anti-theft controlled by computer: some even will adjust the seat and steering wheel to suit different drivers when they enter the car!!!
The downside to all this "smarts" on a car is obvious: what happens when something breaks? The good thing is that the onboard computers themselves are very reliable. The problem is that the computers rely on a whole flock of sensors and wires to give them the data needed to make your car run. These sensors are not nearly as reliable as the computer itself, in fact they fail quite often!
This is where a "limp home mode" comes into play. Whenever the vehicle computer gets a reading from a sensor that is obviously wrong, it will "assume" a value that it "knows will work". On the earliest computer controlled cars with feedback carburetors, if the computer got bad readings from sensors, it would run the carb at the richest setting. You would get horrible gas mileage, but the car WOULD run. The computer would then turn on an amber "CHECK ENGINE" light. It would also store a trouble code in its memory telling what sensor was giving a "bogus" reading.
The newer computers are much more sophisticated, and just because a "CHECK ENGINE" light comes on doesn't really mean the computer is totally in a "limp home mode". Depending on what sensor reading is out of specs the computer may still be doing a pretty good job of controlling the engine. For example, some cars can have the "CHECK ENGINE" light come on if you don't tighten your gas cap tight enough after filling up!
On most vehicles the "CHECK ENGINE" light will go out if the sensor starts giving normal readings again, although some computers will make you use a scan tool to turn the light off.
This basically looks like the sensor to me, try getting that fixed for good.
Kindly let us know for any future assistance.
Thanks
Fame !

SOURCE: what does 'BAS ESP' mean? its come up on my dash-board on my car

Brake Assist System, Electronic Stability Programme. It will need to go on a computer, the most obvious thing is the brake light switch, fault will need to be erased after fixed.

My dash is displaying "BAS/ESP" light, and I've had to charge the battery just to get the vehicle started. Every time I turn off the car, the next day it will be dead again.


You have a bad relay fuse. Located in you fuse box under hood. Found this out on my own 2mts ago.ESP/BAS would only stop when battery cable was disconnected. Have not had another problem.

All you have to do after replacing the battery and the bas/esp light comes on is drive the vehicle. While your driving around is will allow the steering angle sensor to relearn. That's only if it says "bas/esp see owners manual" displayed on the cluster.

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.

I had a similar problem with my car and was advised that the ESP and BAS normally come out as a direct result of the low voltage on the battery.Chances are your battery life has expired. Replace your battery with a new one. To remove the ESP you need to start your engine, turn the steering wheel all the way to left and right, repeat this a couple of times, switch off and restart your car.Make sure you don't leave your lightsand wipers on the auto position as this sometimes drains your buttery power unnecessarily. These simple steps should take away the frustration and make you enjoy your car again.
