Unhappy 2009 Santa Fe

Help - I'm a new Santa Fe owner and am not familar with this vehicle. On the way to work this morning, the ABS & ESC light stays on and the light that shows all 4 wheels is flashing. What does this mean? I read on earlier posts something about a recall - could this be it?

Any suggestions would be great as I don't want to get "taken to the cleaners" by the repair shop.

It could be the brake light switch. Does your cruise control work? The flashing lights could be a low tire pressure warning. First check the tire pressures and then the TPMS system itself.

Okay - checked the air pressure in the tires and it's at 30, so that's not it. The lights went out for 5 minutes and then they are all back on.

First, tires pressures should be at 33, not 30. So your tires are low. Tires lose 1 psi for every 10-deg drop in temp.

Are you sure the gauge is accurate?

I say go back to the dealer. It's still under warranty.

Update - dealer advises it is the Wheel Speed Sensor and it's under warranty! Whoo hoo, now just need to wait for the part to be ordered in.
