Complaint - Service Brakes

I WAS SLOWING DOWN TO EXIT THE HIGHWAY AND WHEN I STEPPED ON THE BRAKES, I FELT NO PRESSURE ON THE PEDAL BRAKES. I PRESSED HARDER ON THE BRAKES AND STILL THE CAR DIDN'T SLOW UNTIL I GOT TO A SLIGHT INCLINE AT THE END OF THE RAMP. THEN A RED WARNING LIGHT ON THE DASHBOARD APPEARED READING "REDUCED BRAKE POWER". I TURNED OFF THE ENGINE AND WAITED A COUPLE OF MINUTES. I MANAGED TO GET HOME SAFELY. I CALLED A CERTIFIED MECHANIC AND HE TOLD ME TO CALL THE MERCEDES BENZ DEALER BECAUSE OF A POSSIBLE RECALL. AS PER THE MECHANIC, THIS ARE THE FAULTING CODES: C2131 - PRESSURE RESERVOIR FAULTY C249F - OPERATING TIME OF COMPONENT A7/3 (SBC LEFT HYDRAULIC UNIT) IS EXCEEDED C25D5 - HYDRAULIC FAULT MALFUNCTION IN PRESSURE SUPPLY AS OF THIS WRITING, MY BRAKES HAVE NOT BEEN REPAIRED.
