    2001 Mercedes ML320 shortly after 50K miles began to show quite similar problem, ESP and Check Engine lights come on, the ESP light will occasionally dissapear and then come back on. I've read on a few different blogs that this is an ongoing issue with ML, but no one could really find out what is causing it. The car runs just fine...

Hi klapperkiste,
First you will need a generic obd2 reader in order to see what codes are stored in the ecm. If I'm not mistaken autozone will check it for free and give you a code like P0453, P and 4 digits #s with this information you will know what area the trouble is located. Still some testing will need to be done in order to pinpoint the trouble. It is very important that you write down all the DTCs (diagnostic trouble code)s in order to find the solution to your problem.
The "Check Engine" light will turn on when emissions out of the tail pipe exceed 1.5 times the federal limit. Any number of thing can cause the light to come on and not show any driveability symptoms, a common cause is leaving the gas cap loose after a fill up. I hope find this information helpful, More information is needed on your part to go further in finding a solution to your problem.

ML320 cruise control does not engage


You're not gonna believe this but if the center brake light is out on a 2000 ML320 the cruise control will not work. I went over the owners manual with a fine tooth comb and not once did it mention the center brake light in conjuction with a malfunctioning cruise control. The book did state however to bring the car into an authorized Mercedes Benz dealer.
