Hey folks just got my car back and the paint is awesome. Anyway, when I started the car at the paint shop I noticed the ESP/BAS light was on.. which was wierd..
I drove it a few miles and then stopped and restarted and the lights went out, and then came back on again...
Has this happened to anyone else?

(didnt know about the wheel back and forth trick) thanks "HAL H" for that info I'll try it next time it happens,
HAL H, you wrote "page 287 in the manual - to syncronize ESP/BAS" are you referring to the owners manual?
Yes, that's correct - in the owner's manual. I have a .pdf version I uploaded from Dodge.com so that I can look this up and copy+paste when questions arise.
Another thing that can also trigger a ESP/BAS warning is the brake pedal switch if it goes bad (was a common thing on 'Benz cars - cheap switch to replace) if the steering wheel re-synch doesn't do the trick. That would be covered under your 36mos/36k mile warranty.
One other possibility is if a ABS wheel sensor (or cable connector) goes bad, but that has been pretty rare. Unless something thrashed around inside the wheel well and damaged the ABS cable going from the body to the backside of the wheel hub - those can be easily replaced too.
