Hi, my name is***** light comes on the dash but there are no trouble codes?

Does the vehicle have any other symptoms? Noise while driving?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no
Expert:  Jake Cheek replied 8 months ago.

So no symptoms, but the ESC light is on and reads service. And to verify - there are no trouble codes or they have not been checked? And was the ignition switch changed in attempt to fix this issue?

This condition may be caused by the steering angle being inadvertently recalibrated. The condition may also be the result of the steering angle sensor (SAS) not being properly centered after an alignment or other repair. The fix is to update the EBCM software and recalibrate the Steering Angle Sensor. This must be completed by a GM Dealer.
