The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern.

    MY BREAK LIGHT REAR DRIVER SIDE DOES NOT WORK. BUT THE FRONT DRIVER SIDE DOES, TRIED TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULB BUT THIS DIDNT WORK SO DOES THAT MEAN I MAY NEED TO CHANGE THE WHOLE LIGHT ARE IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE I MAY NEED TO DO.

    ESP and ABS light stayed on. Its in the shop for the 3rd time. I am suggesting that they change the brake light switch.
