RE: what does the BAS ESP light mean?
My guess is that you have a bad sensor, too. When my vehicle was new, everytime I accelerated fast, my ML will sudden choke down and the BAS/ESP light will come on and you would hear the brakes vibrating trying to incorrectly adjust the speed/direction.
This was different from the fuel pump problem in that a bad sensor will normally just slow down, the BAS/ESP light will come on, and you will hear the brakes vibrating normally on the wheel with the bad sensor.
2005 ML 500
Black, 18" AMG Wheels, 285/60R18 Yokohama Geolander HTS + Bi-Xenons(+ Drew's e-code mod, though the reflectors rusted off and do not give out much light anymore), Yakima roof bars, Akebono pads all around. Former vehicle 2001 ML 320 with 108K miles, when traded, and a large repair/defect history. After all these years of owning my current 2005 ML 500, it is a major unreliable vehicle with a very large/expensive repair/defect history and has been like this since brand new.
