My 2007 ML 350 4MATIC recently showed the light after a heavy downpour at night. The wipers, electric seats, rear boot lock, indicators and central locking all stopped working. I struggled and finally got home but the rear lights would not go off when switched off. I took the car to the dealer the following day. After computer diagnostics, the dealer says there are traces of water in the rear right boot compartment that has damaged the rear Signal Acquision Module (SAM SYSTEM). The dealer bill is a whooping usd 2,000.00 in Kenya including sorting out the manufacturer's defect that caused the water leakage into the rear compartment!

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

If the car hasn't gone into "limp home mode" then you should be fine to drive it but go easy on the brakes as there won;t be any ABS to help assist with heavy braking.

Abs light is on trany strock on secound gear


If the second gear problem happened just as the ABS lamp came on.....Car is in Limp Mode.

ABS system has set likely a code about safety...ie" Brake system failure..... although 3rd gear is usual default.

You must scan for codes and remedy the fault/s.

ABS and ESP lights on all the time. I bought Audi A4 B6 2004 only two months ago. It started in heavy rain.


The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP & ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP & ABS system is faulty. You must access the ESP & ABS 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 (placed in dashboard, under a plastic cover above the ashtray). 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 ESP & ABS ECU, in other words reset the ESP & ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

1990 jaguar xj6 transmission problem


Hi Virtgen

If you have checked your automatic transmission fluid, and its OK.
Does it smell burnt ?
Sounds like you have a mechanical problem in the transmission.

The ABS light on is another problem.
This is usually associated with a rear ABS sensor faulty, due to corrosion in the rear hub.

Give me some feed back !

Please give a FixYa rating Please, ....almost a Guru !

well.. the output speed sensor is the output side of your transmission speed sensor... these are horrible on merc's... easily replaced... but a pain to get the correct one.. and this sensor could cause almost all the problems you list alone... but with such low miles it may be a warranty item? as it is on your transmission...

Abs light, engine light


I have the same car, same problem and I've been doing some research. It seems to be that the most common problem is a faulty ABS sensor that causes the car to go into "Limp Home Mode". Limp Home Mode is automatically initialized when the car senses that it has some sort of electrical or mechanical issue. This is most likely what your experiencing, because I, and many other X-type owners are as well. Good Luck.
