The ESP malfunction break light comes on intermittently when the break paddle is not fully depressed, usually to slow down while waiting to make a turn. When this light is on, the car feels like you are driving with the parking break on. It moves slowly even if the gas paddle is being pressed. Mostly of the time, I can reset it by stopping the car, turn it off, and restarting the car. I need to bring it in to the shop and have it checked out.
The gear is stuck on park
Took to dealer for warranty fix.
