Sounds like the Brake Safety switch. It is attatched to your brake pedal on the back, call your local Mercedes mechanic ask if they have one. Easy to replace and under 50 dollars.

SOURCE: How do you reset 2006 ml500 mercedes benz

You will need a code reader/scanner called OBD2. They are under $50. A nice one can cost $100-$3,000. Just buy one that does the job...no need for the more expensive ones. You can borrow one from some auto parts stores, like the AutoZone.
You can also pay a shop this much to do it for you, every time.
Just select erase codes, and you're done.

I have an ESP problem in my Mercedes Benz C220 CDI, 2008 and the problem is an ESP CURRENTLY unavailable. Cruise controls and speedtronic inoperative


It is usually a ABS wheel speed sensor has gone faulty, but you would have to have electronic diagnostic done to read off a fault code (DTC) and maybe a live data scan . Hope this helps

Abs light stays on and the esc indicator light also but when you start it it shows it off


the operators guide shows what these mean and what to do.
lost that>? i have one, and 08 JK.
pages 105 to 116
it resets each drive. the opr guide says that, and does.
its a very complex system, you should RTM.

ill quote your missing pages.
ABS:
If the light remains on after start-up or comes on and
stays on at road speeds, it may indicate that the ABS has
detected a malfunction or has become inoperative. The
system reverts to standard non-anti-lock brakes.
ESP:/TCS
The ESP/TCS Indicator Light (located in the instrument
cluster), starts to flash as soon as the tires lose traction
and the ESP system becomes active. The ESP/TCS Indicator
Light also flashes when TCS is active. If the
ESP/TCS Indicator Light begins to flash during acceleration,
ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle
as possible. Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to
the prevailing road conditions


is this clear? if not ask more, questions , more specific and we can peel the onion deep as you want.

2006 suzuki grand vitara esp light on


When the Electronic stability program indicator stays on it is alerting you to the fact that the systems control module has detected a fault and shut the ESP off. You must now have it diagnosed to find out what caused this fault.

What is a (esp) light comes on at the cluster


this is "Electronic Stability Program", this light comes on momentarily because the wheels have lost traction, if it is always on there is a fault in the system

Malfunction indicator lamp


The Malfunction Indicator Lamp or MIL (Also called the check engine light or service engine soon light) comes on when the on board computer detects an issue with the operation of the engine or transmission.

The best thing to do is to take the vehicle to an auto parts store like Autozone and have them hook up their scan tool to the vehicle and read the code. They can read it, tell you what it is and also tell you what the code means.

If it is pointing to a faulty component or sensor and you replace or repair the component the the light will go off on its own after the computer sees that the malfunction is no longer present.

You can have the code cleared, but if whatever caused the light to come on in the first place is not addressed then it will just come back on eventually.
