I have the same problem from yesterday.
I was in service and I heard that all is ok.
Today message about engine and ESP control is back. I turned engine off and all messages was cleared.
Is that problem is only problem with software or something "hard" (like ESP)? Tomorrow I must go 500km and don't now what doing...
P.S. My english is very basic

We had this exact same problem, about 6 months ago.
After 4 visits to the dealer to get it fixed, they finally agreed to change the Turbo - as this is what they suspected was causing the fault.
However, the day it went in for the work - the guys found a hole in the inlet pipe to the turbo. Hurrah.
The bad news is the problem returned about a week ago - it is booked in this Wednesday(17/12/08).
Will keep you updated.

Should a customer express concern that the brake system warning lamp / Stability control (ESP) warning lamp is illuminated in the instrument cluster, the probable cause is a damaged front ABS-sensor wiring in the area of the shock absorber and spring assembly.
The ABS-sensor wiring harness for the front brake is available for S-MAX/Galaxy 2006.5 and Mondeo 2007.5 as a spare part for servicing purposes. If the ABS-sensor wiring harness is damaged the engine compartment wiring harness may no longer be replaced completely.
This TSB details the necessary steps to install the ABS-sensor wiring harness for the front brake."

We had the "engine malfunction" message around Christmas and they replaced the turbo. I couldn't understand if they were saying we did not drive it hard enough often enough or if it was a faulty turbo.
Anyway six months on we have the same message. Simply the orange warning light and the words "engine malfunction".
It is under warranty and will be going back to the garage next week.
I am just a little concerned as we only have 6 months left on the warranty and there have been a good few issues with this car, oh well - see what they say next week.
Anyone had persisitant turbo problems?
