Default ESP/BAS Light..not fixed after going to dealer, please help!

Hi everyone, I am new to the website. My BAS/ESP and Traction light (squiggles) has been coming off the past month or so. I took it to the dealer today and $500 later they replaced the outer tie rods, steering angle sensor and did a four wheel alignment. At the light before I got home the lights came back on!! Anyone have any advice? I called the dealer and they said it could be a clockspring or lock spring something in the steering wheel. I'd like to avoid paying more and more until they figure it out, thanks for any help you can provide!

Well, that would be a misdiagnosis and they need to do it right this time. Don't pay them anything else. Side note...it's almost NEVER a steering angle sensor. Someone just read the code verbatim and slapped a sensor on it.

Default ESP/BAS and ABS lights stays on after battery died/replaced with new one

DODGE CHARGER 5.7 liter R/T 2007

NEED HELP!!!!!! I have similar problem

Did not drive my car in 4 weeks/ battery died/ tried to charge it for 18 hr/ could not still start the car. Bought a new battery / car started right away. Great I thought; seconds later EPS/BAS and ABS lights came on.

I have tried disconnecting battery/ turning weel left then right then center and then shut car down. Drove 50mph about 1 mile. Did not help.

Tried removing battery cables again/no help. Tried disconect fuses # 11 and # 17 / no help.

Did what manual say at the bottom of this note (factory recomendation) for sync./ no help.

ANYTHING ELSE I COULD TRY? LIMITED OPTION AVAILABLE BECAUSE I AM IN DUBAI UAE

Thanks

Jukka

The malfunction indicator light for the ESP is combined with BAS. If the power supply was interrupted (battery disconnected or discharged), the ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light may be illuminated with the engine running. Turn the steering wheel completely to the left and then to the right. The ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light should go out.

Jukka, you need to get the codes pulled. Alot of things can happen in 4 weeks of sitting. I know in the states 4 weeks is plenty of time for squirrels or mice to find a nice home in a stationary object. For some reason they like to chew wires. Could be a number of things.

What you are describing is relearning the steering angle sensor. I could still be a wheel speed sensor problem, a clockspring or a module issue.
