Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Had same problem.
At the same time the cruise control aint working either ?
My solution, (how my problem was fixed was to change the
switch behind the break pedal, ie the switch which regulates yr
rear stoplights. In my case this switch was worn out and malfunctioned.
This is a 2min job, and part aint expensive.

1) Ceck fuses are OK and secure (push to ensure they are in well)
2) Check tyre pressures
3) If still on or intermittant a good franchise or non franchise Merc garage will check diagnostics for free. Likely to be a faulty abs sensor. In the UK to fix one will be about £120 all in.

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.

You should get the code red by a dealer, if not and you have just changed the pads, then some time the code needs clearing, this merc can do for you or a good garage that has a DC. If not i may know man that can, let me know your area.

brake light switch ,that's the part you need to replace to fix that BAS/ASR light. It's a $20 US part, a screwdriver, and 15 minutes to fix.
