I have the same problem. The ESP/BAS light sometimes comes on after I have driven about 20 milesand made multiple stops. It goes out whenI turn off the car and restart it. However, if I continue to drive it comes on again. If I continue to drive, it will spontaneouslybrake and shake like it is trying to stabilize the car but, in fact, it is un-stabilizingit. My problem is that my mechanic saysthat they cannot diagnose the issue since the light does not stay on and itdoes not show up during the computer diagnostic test. I know that this problem hasbeen discussed multiple times on this site, but there are so many possiblesolutions that it is not helpful. Whatcan I suggest to my mechanic?
