Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
The first thing that needs done here if this has not been done at all yet is to have the fault codes read out/checked using a scan tool that will plug in and communicate with all computers in your vehicle.There will be at least one code set in the anti lock brake unit/esp or bas unit that will help diagnose this issue here.This can be a large number of different components causing this fault here needing replaced most likely.
I have seen commonly the steering angle sensor or wheel speed sensors cause this fault here needing replaced.If you can get the fault codes read out this will help here but I suspect one of these may be the component needing replaced due to their common failure.

Usually it will not do any further damage but keep in mind you wont have anti lock brakes while this light is on and your cruise control may not work as well until this is repaired.You will however still have normal power brakes to operate the vehicle.
