Hello everyone,

I bought my daughter a 2011 Kia Soul back in 2011, and she has put 10,000 miles on it in just over 2 years, so it has been relatively trouble free.

But then the ESC light would come on, and stay on, and I read somewhere that it is a nuisance, but does not cause a problem.

And then last night she told me her brake lights were no longer illuminating when she engaged the braking mechanism.

Took it into the Kia dealership this morning and they replaced the Brake Light Switch that is actuated by the braking pedal. This corrected everything, including the ESC.

tech told me that the ESC routes through this switch, and this is a common problem.

Covered by warranty, by the way.
