    Hi vwv,

    Does the light go off shortly after you start the engine? If so, that's normal (it's to verify that the bulb works). If it stays on, push the ESP button on the instrument panel. If it still won't go off, there's a problem with the system. Your checks of the system will be limited to the brake fluid level, making sure the fuses are good, and that the electrical connectors to the wheel speed sensors are intact. Any further diagnosis will have to be performed by a technician with the proper tools and training.
