    The BAS ESP light continually comes on my 2001 model CLK200. It only used to come on occassionly until I put new tyres on the front wheels. Now it comes on nearly all the time from start up. Dealers say this and that and the other and all want their money to 'fix it'. But I don't know who to believe. Car is due its NCT soon. Any ideas?

Report it to national transporation safety so that they will thoroughly investigate and recall for relay pump after they did to brka light switch. They should give big penaly to Mercedes and this had a lots of problems on all ml suv.

My dash is displaying "BAS/ESP" light, and I've had to charge the battery just to get the vehicle started. Every time I turn off the car, the next day it will be dead again.

You have a bad relay fuse. Located in you fuse box under hood. Found this out on my own 2mts ago.ESP/BAS would only stop when battery cable was disconnected. Have not had another problem.

All you have to do after replacing the battery and the bas/esp light comes on is drive the vehicle. While your driving around is will allow the steering angle sensor to relearn. That's only if it says "bas/esp see owners manual" displayed on the cluster.

BAS/ ESP light on the dash bord stays on all time the car engine is running

The BAS stands for Brake Assist System, don't remember what ESP stands for.
But the first thing to do is make sure the brake lights go on when you hit the pedal.
If not, then replace the brake light switch above the pedal.
If that is not it, it could be many things, such as a bad lateral acceleration switch.

What does 'BAS ESP' mean? its come up on my dash-board on my car

Brake Assist System, Electronic Stability Programme. It will need to go on a computer, the most obvious thing is the brake light switch, fault will need to be erased after fixed.
