If the car detects a spin in the wheels or the danger of skidding in a turn, the ESP light will come on, verifying that the program is taking control of the car.

If the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) light stays on you need to see the repair shop. You don't have to be alarmed but it is best to have it checked out soon.
