Last week my EX V6 4WD (so 5-speed trans, not the ZF 6-speed) did the same thing for the first time at 17,000 miles. The dealer replaced a switch assembly (Part number 93810-3K000QQK) under warranty. We just took a 700-mile road trip, with no problems. Fingers crossed that was the fix.

Just got on the forum to try and find out what is wrong with my Borrego. I see some of you are having the same problem I am having, the ESC and hill descend light come on. My dealer has doing nothing at all and can't tell me what is wrong. Have any of you successfully fixed this issue, and if so what do I need to tell the service department so they can fix it.
Thanks,
Jason

But I guess that makes way too much business sense.
we people who work at the dealers who are trying to solve issues like these for our customers wish they would do that too... lol

I think I have it fixed. Sorry this update is so long after my first post. I was experiencing this problem over and over, and they could never get me in to service it, so I went to a completely different dealership AFTER the last straw the other day: I wasn't able to shift from Reverse. I was able to pull the shifter from Park to Reverse, and couldn't get it to budge from there. If I turned the car off and then turned it back on, the problem went away - for a while. It was almost exactly the same as the ESC Off light problem. All I would have to do to fix that was turn the car off and back on.

When I finally went to another dealership (curse you Ferguson Kia) they replaced the brake line switch (?) and said my problems would disappear. Hopefully, they are right. I haven't experienced a shifting problem since then though, so that's a hopeful sign.

As I've stated prior in this same post, my V8 transmission was replaced in June 2010 because of the stuck in gear issue and ESC & Downhill lights staying on. It happend again in June 2011, but at that time there was a TSB 035 that changed out a major part in the transmission (but only on the V8's). It is apparent that this problem is not inherent in just the V8's. Some with the V6 owners have stated the brake switch was replaced. When I had the transmission module changed (per TSB 035) the dealer also said an error code for the brake switch showed up. The brake switch was also replaced at the time of the transmission fix. So you have to wonder...was it the transmission or the brake switch? Oh well, the problem hasn't occured since and I got new transmission fluid out of the deal.

AC problem too

I have had the air conditioning problem as well, but I came from GM vehicles (all Buicks) that had the same issue (the issue being where you have no cool air until the vehicle is moving). Let me know what you find out so I can know if I need to go into my dealer (even though it is no longer hot weather here in Oklahoma.

By the way, my vehicle is an EX V6 4WD, not a V8 like the others with similar issues.
