This indicates a fault is detected with the electronic stability control in your model here.What needs to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool/code reader that can plug into your vehicles data port and can read all computers to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this fault.This can be a fault with a stability sensor like a wheel speed sensor or steering position sensor but there are several components that can fail and causes this issue here so the codes do need read out to locate and repair this fault.
The cost to have this diagnosed can run around $100.Repair costs will vary depending on what is found at fault but can range from $100 to over $500 in some cases.
It may just be low voltage again.YOu might try a jump start and if it starts have the battery and alternator tested and if found o.k. have a parasitic drain/draw test done to see if there is an electronic that is causing a battery drain issue in your vehicle needing replaced.

Even though it has voltage it may not have enough amperage to allow the starter to engage or engage properly to turn over the engine.I would still have the battery and alternator tested for any issues and any issues found with any of these will need repaired.
If the battery and alternator are o.k. it is very possible this is an issue with a component like the electronic ignition switch needing replaced.I have seen ignition switch failure in the past before and had to replace it on several models vehicles.This would have to be checked into and tested further to locate which component is at fault.
