Re: recall Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
DaimlerChrysler has announced that it is recalling 2005 and 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren models due to a problem with the electrical system. The $450,000, 617-hp car with a top speed of 208 mph could catch fire due to the high temperatures generated by the electrical system and the resulting damage inflicted upon the vehicle's alternator. So far, no fire or accidents have been reported. The recall affects 433 vehicles in the United States, and will involve replacing the alternator and installing a modified control unti. Vehicles elsewhere in the world are being dealt with as well.

The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern. A recall on certain 2000-2002 models have been recalled for a related issue
Its a common and known fault on the Mercedes A140 unfortunately. Mercedes seem to have rectifieded the issue on later A series models but to my knowledge they have never admitted to a problem or had a recall on affected gearboxes.
It is unlikely therefore that you will get much joy from the dealers on this issue. Your best bet might be to source a replacement gearbox from a breakers or even better a reconditioned box with a warranty.
So you need money for a car...I see. How about saving some? Or buying a cheaper car? Oh wait, I got it!!! There's this thing called work. You find a job and they pay you to WORK. It's not as easy as begging but you'll take pride in your self for doing this.... This site is for TECHNICAL SUPPORT, INSTRUCTIONS, and REPAIRS. Not for hand outs.
There are two switches. The key lock cylinder and actual switch 180
degrees to the left of that, on the left side of the steering column.
You need a special tool to remove the switch.
First, remove the steering column cover with 3 bolts at the bottom,
facing the floor. Remove tilt lever if equipped. Now insert the key,
turn to on position. From the instrument cluster side, insert a small
screw driver or tiny punch to push in the retainer, like a door knob
bolt in a house, and pull the cylinder out.
Unplug only one electrical connector for the cylinder, or two for the
switch. Do not touch yellow wires or any airbag components, though they
might have inflated, still be careful, you didn't say, and they keep a
minimal amount of power even with a smashed battery.
