Hello. The esp is the traction system. It will not affect driving of the car. It will however not allow the abs to work. Usually it's because of a failed brake light pressure switch or a sensor in the system. The only way for me to know exactly what is happening is to get the fault codes read with a Mercedes scan tool. But a esp error is not going to make the car unsafe to drive. It will still run and shift as normal. Hope this information helps. If you are the kind to fix issues yourself then get me the codes and I can tell you the best options for repair. If not then have a shop check it out when you can. Hope this information helps.
