It is likely not a fuse but a problem with a sensor. your best bet is to scan the system for trouble codes and see where they lead you. A $100 code reader will not work for this system. you will need to find a good independent shop or the dealer and they will likely charge for this. You can also try your local parts store, they may be able to help you for free. DO NOT LET THEM SELL YOU ANYTHING. It is unlikely anyone at the parts store has experience with this system and they will be guessing at best.
Post the codes in the comments and i'll see what i can do to help
Try holding the esp button down for about 15 to 30 seconds and see if it will reset itself. If not you have a stability control problem. Have the tech check the wheel sensors, alignment and steering components , such as tie rods and the rack system. Have brakes checked also. The ESP reads wheel rotation and angle then uses the steering and braking systems of your car to keep your vehicle stable in a skid or slide. A problem with this system will cause the light to remain on until the problem is found and corrected. Go to another Mercedes dealership.. They don;t seem to know what they are doing.
Your computer will store the fault code till it gets reset either by scan tool, or by operating the vehicle for at least 50 to 80 "good trips", trips that the ecm found no fault. It is possible there are other faults that the ecm has seen. OBDII systems cannot be erased like the older systems could be erased by the battery being disconnected.
old post. ESP first google hit Electronic Stability Program (ESP) system which is designed to help keep
the car under control in unstable situations, like trying to slow down
in a sharp turn, for instance. You can try resetting the system by
holding the ESP button down for 15 seconds with the car running. That
turns the system OFF until you hit a speed of about 15 MPH, then the
system should turn on again. If the light comes on, the system is
deactivated which may be a safety issue and you could get it diagnosed
by a Suzuki specialist. There should be trouble codes and data stored
in the control module when the light's on.
you have 2 choices take it to any ASE shop. or buy the FSM for your car and read it. or same DIY, buy this. alldata, and read. for 15 bucks. http://www.scantool.net/software/alldata-diy-1-month-subscription.html
The ESP light will come on whenever the abs light is on, this is due to the ESP system cant operate if the abs system is not working.The first thing you will have to do is scan the computer for codes. the computer will store a code whenever it sees a problem and then turn on the light to warn you theres a problem and then shuts down the abs system, there are many auto part stores that scan check engine lights for free as far as the abs system i am not sure you will have to check. the codes will tell you what part of the system has failed. for example there may be a code like C 1201 left front wheel speed sensor, this code will tell you theres a problem with the left frt sensor, it may be the sensor or the wiring or connector but with a little testing the problem can be repaired. the only thing is the esp and the abs are shut down, the car can still be driven you just wont have the abs. good luck and i hope this is helpful.
