Electronic Stability Control and Brake Assist System are the translations. what it means is there is a fault. Most commonly its either the steering angle sensor initulazation (spl?) or a brake lamp switch. Try spinning the wheel from lock to lock 4 or 5 times, if the light goes out, it was just in need of the steering angle sensor initulazation. If not, you'll want to get the codes read and the issue repaired. Most times it is a simple fix.
