I decided to start a new thread with this problem.

My car is a Cee´d 2008 2.0 CRDI.

I´m getting ABS light + ESP OFF light together. The lights usually turns on when i´m driving (both together). The warnings are sometimes gone the next time i start the car and sometimes it´s still there. So there is no pattern in this. The lights comes on almost every time i drive the car except for one time when i drove the car a long long way (over 12 hours) and it did not come on.

I have noticed that the ABS light flickers sometimes when i start the car.

It´s wierd and i can´t seem to diagnose this with a regular OBD2 reader.

Anyone know where to start or if anyone has had the same problem? anyone know it there is a way to diagnose this at home?

(the warranty is voided on this var since the last owner missed 1 service so please don´t refer me to my local kia dealer).

You can still use a Kia dealer even if the previous owner rather stupidy missed a service. Hope you got the car cheap.

Check your battery earth strap - Mine was loose and was causing the esp light to come on along with random beeps from the stereo. I only found it after checking the resistance between the negative terminal and engine block and working back from there.
