94, MB. Dash light ASR.

From what you said the car goes to LIMP HOME mode and that is ASR issue that can't be solved by connecting your car to the computer and having the issue pinpointed. ASR can't be tested.You will have to replace engine wiring harnes FIRST part # 140 540 47 05 buy on line or on EBAY cost is about $610.00, check the performance of your car, if you lucky then this it. But from my experience next to replace is a left ETA (if not two of them) to fix this problem they are VERY EXPENSIVE about $4000.00 ea. ETA Left # 000 141 72 25 and right # 000 141 39 25. Word of advice DON"T BUY ANY OF THE ABOVE MENTION PARTS USED, remove your own ETA's from the car and call BBA Remanufacturing Inc. @ 866-573-2740 ( they can rebuild your own ETA's at about $300.00 ea plus shipping.The work is guaranteed. After replacing above parts the car will run like new. No ASR issues for next 10-15 years. So far I find this as a number one issue with Mercedes S600. Good luck.

BAS ASR problem

ok, first you have to clear the codes.
in this type of cars you cannot clear codes with a regular obd II it has to be the factory scanner or similar. after you clear the codes drive it for a while. when light comes back on scan it again and that is going to be your true problem. if you replaced the switch but didn't clear the code the light will be still on because the computer doesn't know that you fixed the problem. so try it out and let me know if worked.
