Hi I'm a new guy to the forum. I just bought a 2011 Kia Sportaage LX and we are having an issue that I hope someone can put some light on. The ESC and the DBC lights are staying on all the time and no one turned them on. It seems that when they are on I sometimes cannot shift the car out of park. I was able to get around by using the shift release.

This got me thinking. Is the car designed this way? When the lights are on is the not supposed to be driven? Will this damage the car? I did drive it a bit.

What causes this malfunction?

Thanks for any help.

It sounds like you may have a bad brake switch. The lights are on because there is a fault that caused a code to set. Call your dealer and make an appointment.
