ABS light in Mercedes S500

The ABS light on my dashboard is 'on' and does not go off. I got it checked at one of the garage and they found a code fault as C1142: Lateral Acceleration Sensor open / Short circuit. Could anybody help me with the details of what may be wrong and how much will it cost to get it fixed. Also, the garage person advised me that they can rectify the stuff but would not be able to reset the system. Regards, Jay

SOURCE: dashboard on a mercedes 190

Sorry, but removing the entire dashboard on a Merc 190 is far too detailed and involved to go into on this site, especially as it's very time consuming to scan and upload to a website all of the photos and diagrams which you'll need. In any case, it's all copyrighted material and so would be illegal to do so.

I respectfully suggest that you get a Haynes manual; the first repair alone will more than pay for the book.

SOURCE: my 1995 mercedes S500 idles rough, and no power.

I had a similar problem with my 1994 S420.
Before taking it to the shop check the following:
Distributor covers, Rotors and Spark Plugs. That's what my car needed. Before I did it two "specialized" MB mechanics wanted to replace the engine wiring harness ($1,000.00) and the other wanted to replace Air mass sensor, throttle valve actuator ($2,000.00) I hope that's all you need.

My ABS/Brake light in dashboard is on .


I didn't have that issue,but I had a 1992 dakota with
rear abs only & I just unplugged the module under the dash

I'm all for diagnosing everything & having it factory stock & working

But you don't need abs on a 4x4 that old & the rear hydraulic
abs unit ,gets so rusty that it is sad.

If you ever replace rusted brake tubing, remove it

They don't check that in inspection

What does ESP light mean on a cls 500 Mercedes Benz


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty.
You should access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

If the problem still occurs you should access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS & ESP ECU, and reset it.

ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT STAYS ON


ABS = Anti-lock Brake System.
TC = Traction Control System (Engine Control Module).
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS & TC Electronic Control Units (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I suspect bad brake pedal switch, but you should scan the ABS & TC ECU's.

Abslight stays on no brake lights


Fuse 12 (10 Amps) may be burned out. Its located in "Junction Block". Losing
fuse 12 would kill the ABS systems and light the ABS dashboard light.

Fuse 11 (20 Amps) may be out. Its located in "Power Distribution Center". Losing fuse 11
would kill the brake lights, and light the ABS dashboard light. If fuse 11 is blown,
check your (3) brake light sockets for shorts of any type, or fuse 11 will just blow again.

Here's your ABS Indicator Light wiring diagram:
