    ESP/ABS Light

    On my way home from work this evening the ESP light came on of its own accord. Jabbed the button a coupla times and nothing happened. Pulled over, switched off engine, waited a few mins, switched it on again and the light had gone off, wahey! A mile down the road it came on again, pulled over, etc. Crawled home scared and came straight onto here, read a few articles and checked my brake lights. NO BRAKELIGHTS!!! (Did wonder why a coupla people had flashed me on the way home, didn't think I was driving like an a55). Tried changing fuses and no joy there.
    I go on holiday in 3 days and need the car to get there, I really don't wanna let my family down so need to get it sorted and quick.


    (Car is still in warranty [for what its worth] but don't mind paying cash to get it sorted "now")
    Local dealership have said 2 weeks before they can even look at it.


    Suggestions?
