Question about 2007 Kia Sorento LX 4x4

1 Answer

Dealing with a kia sorento esc off light randomly turning on which has almost caused me 2 accidents on the freeway. when the esc off light turns on my car loses power and i can't accelerate past 50mph. anyway, i am dealing with a case i filed with kia motors trying to see if this may be a malfunction on their end. i ran a diognostic check with kia which stated that my sorento has a transfer case decoder motor fault? from my understanding there is a service bulletin posted concerning this issue and that i am not the only one dealing with this problem. after dealing with kia district manager i was told that because the lack of complying with kia recommended services to the transfer case until my 60000 mile point they will not consider fixing it under warranty. i know this is a tough one to fight but if anyone can explain to me if the transfer case plays a key role in the functionality of the esc and if lack of maintenace can cause it to malfunction the way it is. i am having a hard time believing this based on the amount of individuals having this same problems. any information would be useful. thank you.

We had the same problem. The dealer had to replace the gas pedle which caused the loss of power. The esc light still comes on and off on its own. I will be taking the car back to the dealer to resolve this issue soon.

What causes the ESC light off light to come on in 2009 Kia Sorento LX?


You need to have the car scanned for fault codes to begin the diagnosis. Guessing what the actual cause might be in your case and just replacing parts is not a sound approach. Take it to KIA service or an independent familiar with KIA models.

It may just be an ESC sensor on the car that needs replacing due to failure or it could be something more significant. You might now get an ABS warning light as well if you don't have it already.

Your car is still perfectly driveable without the ESC in operation. It is just that you won't have the stability control assistance if you over cook it when driving the car too hard for the road surface conditions. If your drive sensibly for the road conditions experienced, and have decent tires fitted, you should not activate the ESC in any event (when it is working normally).

I have a 03's sorento and this is quite a common promblem with these cars. First there has been a recall for these cars, if you havn't got it done, get it done, It's free of charge. The recall is the Camshaft Position Sensor. It will cause the car to run unstable, break and engine stall and causes accident and the engine light will come on. Secondly I had the same promblem that you were having, engine was shaking and sputtering and check engine light came on. What I found out is it is the EVAP Emission control system leak large bank 1 & bank 2 system too lean sensor problem. Had to take it to the shop to get the mass sensor replaced. It was a $900.oo + job, I recommend you taking it to the shop to get it diagnos to see what code it is giving you so you would know what exactly you are dealing with.

2008 kia sorento check engine light and ESC OFF light is on


We also have a 2008 Kia Sorento. We bought it in December 2007 and it has 12K miles on it. We've been having the same problem for about 2 months. In our case the check engine light comes on along with the esc off light however in our case the car then immediately loses power! We've had it to the dealer 4 times as it continues to occur even after they've claimed to fix it. The loss of power poses a serious safety hazard.

2005 KIA SORENTO EX STALLS OUT.


Sounds like a vacuum leak. A lot of the stuff under your hood runs off of vacuum that your motor provides. Your brakes are no different. Your motor probably has enough vacuum to run fine but when you hit the brakes its just too much. I wouldn't push my luck. A car with a habit like that could make an accident real quick.
