SOURCE: Warning Light on the dash is illuminated all the time and it says, "BAS ESP"

This is the Brake Assistance/Electronic Stablilty malfunction light, it is the equivalent of an ABS (antilock brake) / electronic suspension control (traction control, rollover control, electronic suspension control) light. It basically means you have a problem in either your electronic ABS, traction control, or some other advanced electronic suspension control problem... Your car is fine to drive like it is, unless you detect some other driveability issue other than the dash light... (99.9% of the time it's something irrelevant and maybe stupid; that's what you get for driving electronic cars...) Your best bet to get rid of the light would be to get the car to an auto shop with a reader that can read ABS/EBS, brake and suspension codes to really find out why the light is on (usually a wheel speed sensor, or something like it...)

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.

What does esp bas mean and the slippery when wet symbol displays on the dash board?


This light comes on when the computer sees the wheels spin, for example if a wheel spins faster than another this light will come on , this is to tell you its slippery out, if this light stays on then there may be a problem with the system and a scan tool is needed to see what the problem is, the computer will store codes listing what part of the system has failed and it will turn the system off because its not working correctly.also some cars have a switch where you can turn the system off yourself, the dash would then say esp/bas off but if it just stays on then you have a problem with the system, if it turns on and goes back off then its okay. good day.

My car dash-board shows "do off" light.


i think you might mean "od off". that means overdrive for the transmission. the button for that may be on the shifter handle or a button on the center dash board. unless youre towing or need a bit extra power you would generally leave it "on" with no lite on dash
