Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi
Had head gasket replaced, now no heat - shop said it's an air pocket - drive it to clear it up - 400 miles & 1 week later, still no heat - ???
The shop is responsible for this. Driving it won't get the air out. There is a tool required to fill the cooling system and bleed out the air. If your 'mechanic' is really what he claims to be he should know that.

under the passenger side false floor in front footwell is the alarm module. Pull the carpet up and remove the 2 10mm bolts from the false floor. There are 2 control units on the backside of the floor. One of them is the alarm module. unplug it and you won,t have an alarm any more. good luck

It is OK to drive it I recommend you fix it when you can It is most likely the stop lamp switch located on the back of the brake pedal part is 25-35 dollars depending on where you live have it tested before replacing. If it tests good you have a faulty brake sensor in one of your wheels check brakes

I assume you have checked the cooling system to ensure that first, that it is completely full of coolant (not just the overflow tank) with no air locks and second that there are no leaks anywhere and the radiator cap is in good condition. The heater hoses and those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system tend to go hard and split if they are over 10 years old, allowing coolant loss. Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses become hard. Worm drive ones are the best to use. Both cooling fans operate together on most larger cars.
If there are no leaks or air locks, the over heating could also be caused by a clogged radiator (more than 15% restriction in the radiator flow capacity will cause overheating problems), a faulty water pump or a faulty thermostat.
If there are no leaks and water pump and thermostat are working correctly, but undetected loss of coolant once the engine heats up, then it could indicate a problem with the head gasket (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry) allowing very hot high pressure combustion gases into the engine water jacket, which super heats the coolant in the engine block, which then boils off, and is released via the cap.
If unsure take vehicle to a cooling system specialist and have them do a pressure test and more thorough diagnosis.
