ESP Not Staying on

Hi Guys

Just bought a 2010 1.8L Ford C-max and i've only had it 2 months and starting to get problems.

The first ( and major) problem is that when I initially bought the car, I was looking through the Menu and pressed the menu button to turn ESP off.
Upon trying to turn it back on however, when I press the button the X to signify that ESP is on will only stay on for 5-10 seconds before turning itself off, whereas beforehand this was a permanent X in the box, I'm pretty sure this means that I have no ESP on at all and driving I can feel it skidding around corners, it honestly feels like I can't trust the car going round any corner at speed

Any help would be appreciated as I'm not a car guy at all, and don't really have money to throw at the car trying to diagnose faults.

I checked to see if it was a simple fuse problem but according to my fuse box diagram, I actually don't have any fuses in at all where the diagrams says I should have 3 ABS fuses.
