They usually turn on after driving a few feet. If they stay on when I turn off the car yes they are on when start up. sometimes they turn off right away.other times they are on the majority of the time.

How many kms on your compass, I had a similar problem with my 08 patriot, turned out to be corroded wires on the foot rest to the left of the brake pedal, mine was replaced under warranty.

Usually if on steady those subsystem are active if I recall when I read the manual.

However, did you replace any front end components (EG tie rod ends). Also what year is it I did not see that.

Also I would not drive it much like that since you'll wear out stability components and brakes which are all doing something.

As in wheel alignment? I don't understand what you mean straight
The bars or spokes to the steering wheel. It it turned while going straight or level steering wheel position.

You had better get it check out before you tear something up driving like that continually is very bad and hard on components and gas.
It's a lose lose situation.

"They are the ESP, track off, and abs lights." as per you first post. Read the manual on what these all do.

The noise is because the brakes are on (braking) as part of ESP etc. This is when its not needed. You could be in for a triple digit repair bill continuing to drive like that. Some people call them idiot lights. I wonder where that came from.
