Customer Question

2000 Mercedes C240 Sport Auto. Lights illuminated on dash: ESP BAS AND ABS. Problems: When driving the car gently the gears change smoothly up and down the box and the car increases in speed. Once I am driving in top gear and I decide to accelerate hard the kick down engages and the revs increase but the car won't accelerate. If I press the accelorator pedal a little less hard the car will drop only one gear and pull away. Press the pedal and engage kickdown and it hesitates. It's a bit like when you Rev the car hard when out of gear and it hits the rev limiter at around 4000 rpm. I hope I'm making sense.
Has this anything to do with th Esp bas and abs light being or car running on safe mode.
