Warning lights....

The ABS warning light, ESP/TCS, and ESP/BAS lights are on my instrument panel when the engine is on. What is wrong and what should I do? How much would it cost to repair? Thanks.

Normally these lights are on when you turn on the vehicle. After 3 secs (avg.) they should go out. If they remain on after the engine is running a malfunction was detected and you should go to the dealer.

Shouldn't cost you a damn thing, the car is under warranty. Don't sweat it, take it to the dealer asap.

I just had this happen to me but I got 500 miles to go on the warranty ... what could possibly be the cause of this? Is it tire pressure ?

All those lights have to do with have to do with the drive and braking systems. It could be as simple as being low on brake fluid, or you may have a control module in your brake system going bad. Either way be very careful driving it to the dealer for service. As in, don't drive in such a way the you may need to make a quick stop. Keep a hand on the parking brake as a backup!

Exclamation

exact thing happening to me right now. Should be a sensor or something, nothing major. Brakes fine, runs fine, but something tripped that sensor to activate the light in the panel. My Ford F150 did same thing when I first bought it, and so did my Cherokee country now that I think of it. Should be an in and out deal. (I HOPE)

Was just at the dealership for this issue, they said it's a speed sensor on a rear wheel.

They have ordered the part and it's all covered by the warranty.

Hey, Thanks filpaul! I know this is an old post, but just wanted to say thanks because this happened to me and I didn't know what it could be.
