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).

This is pretty common and is usually caused by metallic particles stuck to the magnetic encoder on the wheel speed sensor. GM has issued a service bulletin about it.

2008 saturn aura xe service esc comes on


My first suggestion to try for this car is to disconnect the battery, take and pull the access panel on the fuse box on the passenger side of the vehicle. Buy a pack of dilectric grease at autozone or another part store the small packets (usualy 1.27 or something) then unbolt the ground wires which are located in the fuse access towards front put grease on it and tighten down bolts again. Making sure they go completly flush on my car there was a burr in the middle of the threads and this fixed my issues. I was having random service esc, and airbag light on and various other gremlins at diffreent times. It Fixed mine it's worth a try.

What does the ESC light on my Hyundai entourage mean? what does the acronym even stand for?


Your owner's manual says = Electronic Stability Control. Optimum driving safety now has a name : ESC, the Electronic Stability Control. ESC recognizes critical driving conditions, such as panic reactions in dangerous situations, and stabilizes the vehicle by wheel-individual braking and engine control intervention with no needfor actuating the brake or the gas pedal. ESC adds a further function known as Active Yaw Control (AYC) to the ABS, TCS, EBD and ESC functions. Whereas the ABS/TCS function controls wheel slip during braking and acceleration and, thus, mainly intervenes in the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle, active yaw control stabilizes the vehicle about its vertical axis. This is achieved by wheel individual brake intervention and adaptation of the momentary engine torque with no need for any action to be taken by the driver. ESC essentially consists of three assemblies : the sensors, the electronic control unit and the actuators. Of course, the stability control feature works under all driving and operating conditions. Under certain driving conditions, the ABS/TCS function can be activated simultaneously with the ESC function in response to a command by the driver. In the event of a failure of the stability control function, the basic safety function, ABS, is still maintained.

The abs light is on and I want to know is it still safe to drive? and what does service esc mean and service traction ison in my hhr is it still safe to drive while Im waiting to get it fixed


the abs light is on because it is telling you that the abs system has a fault in one of the sensors, also with the light on it means that the abs is disabled. the traction control and esc are on because they are linked to the abs
