BAS/ESP,ETS,ABS lights come on

Hi. Seen a few posts on this but they don't answer my problem. Car runs fine all the time. However after about a minute on the road - same spot every day - the BAS/ESP/ETS and ABS lights all come on. No changes in performance. If I stop and turn off, then turn on again, the lights go out as soon as the wheels turn. Anyone had this and know what the cure is ? Steve

Most probably a wheel speed sensor, you will need to read the fault codes, best to read them when the lights are on.

Welcome. You can probably get more pointed tech information by posting tech questions in your vehicle's specific forum, scroll down the page until you see it.

It could be a few different things, even debris buildup in the hub rings, which you can clean yourself just with a bit of time investment. If not, you may proceed to the focused-diagnostic path.

Good luck.
