When turning the ignition on the car the brake lights come on and stays on what should I Do? I noticed the brake warning light on my "HUD"? When I went to check it out, I noticed that my brake lights were on after the car was started up.
do not see the switch on the brake pedal,only see the switch on the emergency brake.
Steady BAS/ESP light ON
esp light is on
bas/esp kept coming on intermittently. replaced the brake light switch which should have resolved problem but it hasn't. Dealer has been trying to figure out why this hasnt worked for the last 4 months. Dealer now suggesting that the related control module unit is the problem. They have replaced it several times with no resolution.
