The drivers side rear brake light is off, the bulb is
perfect, can't figure out how to correct this issue.
Can you help?
The esp/ bas light kicked on then the abs light came on and the car began to lock the front passenger tire up and I had done research and I found out about the switch is a very good fix an after one day it's still good
car completely stopped (ESP/BASP) - I had to reset them by restarting the engine and turning the steering wheel
BAS ESP light came on after car suddenly braked by itself! Scary
