SOURCE: Tail lights stay on

There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.

SOURCE: ESC ABS light stays on is there a recall on 2006

if there is a recall the dealer will send you papers to inform you, what probably happened is you hit the brakes really hard, locked them up and it blew the abs relay.

What causes the esc light

The ESC Off light comes on and pushing the ON/OFF switch does not put it out. If I shut the car off and re start, the dash light goes out sometimes; May return the next time I start the car..I've heard that the problem has something to do with the brake sensors. People usually notice that the brake lights go crazy as well.My 2009 is in the shop right now for my check engine light. My ESC light is also coming on as well. They ran the diagnostic and the only code that showed up was a faulty crankshaft sensor. I'm wondering if that is affecting the ESC. I know when the ESC comes on I get hesitation before it. That might be the crankshaft sensors doing. They said no other codes came up.This problem was recalled back in 2007-2008 and is presently being recalled on some vehicles. This appears to be a common problem with Hyundais who refuse to address the problem unless the cars are recalled. Please write the National Car Safety so that they can request a recall. Without these complaints, the recall will not occur and everyone will be paying out of pocket for a manufacturing defect.

My 2008 Hyundai Sonata has a check engine light that stays on and ESC off. This happened as I was driving on the interstate at 60 mph and it idled all the way down. Hyundai dealership told me it was a...

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

I have a 2008 hyundia sonata. The ESC off is shown on my dash. What is my problem. The ESC off will go away.

There is a panel of switches to the left of the steering wheel. The left most switch should say "ESC OFF". Press it and it will be turned off. See pages 2-13 and 2-14 of the owners manual:

Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

ESC Off and Engine Lights ON suddenly, the car won't move. Then, I stopped on the side and re-started. the ESC Off light went away but I still have Engine Light ON. I haven't driven since then.

Most auto parts stores Advance/ Autozone etc will get the diagnostics codes from cars computer and tell you why the light is on and what the problem is if there is a problem.

ESC not working

Your question is kind of jumbled, but I believe I had a similar problem. The ESC would not function properly and the button on the dash would not work sometimes. I took it to the dealership and they had to replace a speed sensor on one of my tires. That fixed the issue and maybe it would also fix yours. Hope this helps.
