ESP stands for Electronic Stability Program (or Control). ESP primary purpose is to help drivers maintain control of their vehicle during extreme steering maneuvers by keeping the vehicle headed in the driver's intended direction. ESP does not intervene until it detects that the vehicle is starting to lose road traction. As ESP does its job the ESP light will flash briefly on the instrument cluster.

The ESP malfunction on your vehicle can be caused by several failed components. Instead of just guessing at what could be wrong it is better and cheaper to find a diagnostic scanner that can read the ESP fault codes. The ESP fault code will describe which of the following is the problem. It makes diagnosing such problems much easier and cheaper.

Possible causes;
-brake light switch
-ABS wheel sensor(s)
-low battery voltage
-ABS module
-steering angle sensor

Before you can turn off the ESP light, you first need to find the cause of the ESP light and fix the problem. As you note above - there can be several issues that can cause the ESP light. The easiest and quickest way to diagnose what is causing ESP light to stay on is to use a professional scanner.
