I have a 2006 R/T magnum, the ESP means Electronic Stability System, the BAS means brake assist system and the ABS is your antilock brake system. This together, is your safety system. When those lights are on, your safety system is not working. I have had every thing replaced that could make those lights come on. They still come on randomly. The cruise and the radio also are random coming on and off. I was told that this is common on magnums and it is the ecm that needs to be replaced. That is the electronic controll modual. That is the main brain. The part alone is $500. After replacing all that I have, and have been on the highway with no cruise or safety system and paying for satallite and can't listen to it, I think that I'm gonna take it in to the Dodge dealer, have only the master tech work on it, and maybe the ecm will fix it all, will let you all know what happens. I worked at Dodge dealerships for 7 years, used to sell the magnums. Although most of the mechanics are very good and go the extra mile, some are not. The master tech is the only one I trust my car with. They never give up until it is right!

I understand the frustration here. I have a 08 Magnum. My ESP/BAS light and that little sliding car light is on. Sometimes it goes off for a while and sometimes it just comes on after turning a corner am never goes off. I checked the code thing with the ignition switch and get nothing. My car only has 55k miles. I've had fords with over 100k and never had problems like this. I'm tired of all the god damn sensors on these cars. And the dealer or stealer charges way too much coin to just sit there and guess at the problem.
This is a problem and should have been addressed from the stealer to the manufacture to issue a recall. But my guess is that it's not really a safety issue, so why bother. @kellygirl, you should have just charged back your credit card being they never fixed the issue but had no problem charging you 1000 bucks. I did this once when a KIA stealer tried this **** and charged 900 bucks and still didn't fix the problem. I got all my money back. And guess what? They are no longer in business...
I have a warranty and went to the dealer with this problem. The ESP light would go on whenever I turned left with the turn signal on. Not any other time. I could get it to go off when I turned the wheel all the way left and right. The dealer repaired the problem and no problem since.
Took my 2006 Dodge magnum to the Master tech. He found that the front left hub was bent, threw off the gear box. He replaced the front hub and sensors, replaced the gear box which has inner and outter tyrods attached to gear box.( one part). When the safety system is not working the cruise will not work as well. Only makes sense. The radio/6 disc/nav unit was just plain ole bad, got one off the net. Works Great. No more lights, Great sound drives like brand new. Love this Car!!!
I have an 06 Magnum 3.5l with 20's. I have had the 20's for a few months with no issues. I recently put a starter on and have since has this trouble. To get the starter in I had to disconnect the intermediate shaft from the steering column to the rack. I apparently let the steering get out of center during this process. Until I read this thread, I was trouble shooting the problem trying to figure out what caused it. I have an alignment scheduled and will hopefully resolve my issue. I have never had the ESP/BAS come on before now and feel very lucky after seeing all the problems others have had. Thanks for the information.
