Question ESP light staying on when engine running in hot conditions

Just returned from another 250mi loop around the Oregon backroads in my 'new-to-me' 2015SL. A week or so ago I went into the mountains to escape the heat and had a marvelous ride with the ambient temperature in the 70's. Perfect riding conditions. As I was coming back, however and came back down into the heat of the valley (90-100deg), I noticed that the Electronic Skid Program (ESP) light had come on, and was staying on! Things were indeed hot inside the cockpit but the engine temp was nominal. I made it home okay and the vehicle handled just fine. I let things cool off, started it up and the light was NOT on. I looked up the situation in the owners manual and they state that if the light stays on it means that there is a system failure and a high priced service call may be in the stars. This morning I took another 200+ mile loop, this time towards the coast and enjoyed 50-60 degree temps. Again, on the way back into the valley, experiencing 90+ temps, the ESP light AGAIN lit up. Same thing, after the engine and cockpit had cooled off, the light went out. Knowing that computer electronics and heat go together about as well as oil and water, I'm wondering if this is just a fluke. My question is are there any other owners out there that have experienced something similar and have they had it checked by a technician?
