This is one of the feature called easy access. You can go to the setting from menu at the buttons on your steerling wheel to turn it off then it will stay down. It is under convennient set up, go to steering column and select off.

My 2001 Mercedes S500 was recently rear-ended and the instrument panel no longer lights up nor do the gauges or my steering wheel controls work. What could this be?


The wiring in the back part of the car could be torn apart and affecting the other circuits. Suggest you trace out all the wiring in the back 1/2 of the car to ensure all wiring is grounded and wires are not broken /sheared contacting each other or metal. Then check all the fuses in all the fuse boxes -- pull them and inspect each one. Then check the fusible links I the engine bay. and then the battery and cable connections

I HAVE A S500 THAT GET STUCK IN 1ST GEAR SUM TIME BUT WHEN I CUT THE CAR OFF AN RESTART IT THE CAR SHIFTS FINE


check that the clutch is properly disengaging when you go to change gears . If there is any drag at all on the input shaft then 1st gear will try to stay engaged because of the load on the gear teeth.

Shifter go stuck in park, 2001 s500


YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE STOP LAMP SWITCH OR THE COMPLETE GEAR SHIFT
ASSEMBLY.MOST LIKELY THE SHIFT ASSEMBLY.YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF PARK BY STRIKING DOWN ON THE SHIFT KNOB AND PULLING TOWARD REVERSE AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE IGNITION TURNED ON.IF THIS WORKS,PULL BACK TO NEUTRAL AND START ENGINE.THEN YOU CAN DRIVE IT TO REPAIR FACILITY INSTEAD OF PAYING A TOW BILL.IF THIS WORKS CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT NOW.IT WON'T CONTINUE.

What are the necessary repairs for a 2002 S500 Mercedes with 91000 miles? What should your car be serviced for by this point


Hi, this really depends on its service history.

The following are the recommended service intervals on the Merc S500:

Note: operate A/C at least once per week, to maintain lubrication.

Underhood & Undervehicle

Every 3,000 miles - Replace engine oil & oil filter. Clean battery terminals. Adjust drive belt. Check power steering fluid. Check steering & CV BOOTS for wear and replace if necessary. Lubricate front end suspension.

Every 6,000 miles - Check transmission fluid condition and level. Check brake pads and caliper components - replace if necessary. Lubricate driveshaft U-joints. Rotate tires. Lubricate wiper arm linkage and pivots.

Every 12,000 miles - Adjust engine valve clearance. Replace distributor cap & rotor. Drain and replace engine Coolant. Replace Air Filter element. Replace Fuel Filter. Replace wiper blades.

Every 24,000 miles - Replace Drive Belt. Replace A/C Compressor Drive Belt. ** Change auto transmission fluid & trans filter (this is critical and must be adhered to) - preferrably do a trans flush at same time. Replace drive AXLE fluid.

Every 36,000 miles - Replace HT leads.

Every 2 years - Replace brake fluid (also clutch fluid if applicable). Replace power steering fluid.


** If you intend to keep this vehicle long term, then consider changing the trans fluid & filter every 20,000 miles. This is the secret to automatic transmission longevity.

Power stearing not working. merc s500 2000.


Hi, your problem could be down to a couple of things so try the following,
1 check the fluid in the steering pump resevoir if you look under the bonnet you will see the power steering pump and the bottle you need to fill up it should have steering written on it, check the level and top up if needed.
2 check the belt is still connected to the steering pump have a look and make sure the belt has not snapped that drives the pump its the belt that drives the alternator etc but the pump may have seperate belt but it will be the same side as the alternator.
3, if after doing the above and the belt is ok then this would indicate the pump is no longer working and if this is the case then your going to need to get the pump replaced, doing this will solve your problem.

Steering wheel is 'locked' - move it left or right while trying the key. Or make sure the gear selector is fully in Park, if an Automatic.
