Hi there Ian good afternoon to you

Sorry for the delayed response


Ok the vehicle will be fine to drive (with the ESP light on ) until you can get it checked out (the ESP won't work with this light on )
The most common issue we see in the c-max regarding the ESP light on is a faulty brake pressure sensor
This is internal of the ESP pump
The esp pump can be fitted seperatley from the and module in case you are told you need the full unit which isn't the case with this system
This will be clarified with a fault code check of the abs system
The fault code logged is commonly C1288
