ESP Function:
1. Electronic Stability Program system detects driver′s steering operation amount and brake pedal travel from steering angle sensor and pressure sensor. Using information from yaw rate sensor, G sensor and wheel sensor, ESP judges driving condition (conditions of under steer and over steer) to improve vehicle driving
stability by controlling brake application to 4 wheels and engine output.
2. During ESP operation, it informs driver of system operation by flashing SLIP indicator lamp.
3. Electrical system diagnosis by CONSULT-III is available.

Its a fairly complex system as regards sensors and processing to control the braking system and engine. Looks like a visit to Nissan really.

Effectively you are seeing Slip indications from the system by the indicator lamp showing periodically...which is possibly false?

Can be the pipe at the back of the engine that gets blocked up and needs cleaning out. Quite a few threads on here about the.
