Hi there, Sounds like you have a common problem - Its BAS
Bas is controlled by a switch located under the flap that is directly under the steering wheel.
Get in car, close doors and start engine, now press the brake pedal, the instrument panel will now cycle through the various warnings, abs esp and then stop at bas.
If this is the case the solution is easy go to MB dealer and ask to buy a new braking switch, costs around £10-15. and is a ten minute fit.
In the meantime be carefull as all systems like abs, esp, asr, bas will not work at all!
the system is designed to measure the time taken to depress the brake pedal and hence accertain whether or not to deploy emergency braking, it is also designed to make the first switch fail first hence generating an eronious input when you press the brake pedal (no input on first circut whilst there is on the second) this generates a fault code and causes the computer to have a small fit, and turn off all other saftey systems

I have the same problem exactly. Switched the brake switch, problem still exists. In addition to srs, abs and bas I get an "overvoltage" error. Happens only sporadically. But when it happens stereo shuts off, windows don't work and transmission doesnt shift.
