I have found a lot of times where the tire installer will end up damaging one of the wheel sensors or sometimes not even transferring them over to the new tires when they install them. Double check to see that the TPC wheel sensors are actually there. The valve stem will be grey instead of black. If one got damaged that would also cause the warning to go out. You could try letting the air out of the tires at least more then a 10psi difference and then correct tire pressure right after wards. That is the relearn process to get the sensor to start sending a signal again to the control module. Normally you need the Mercedes Benz "SDS" labtop to activate the relearn in mode, but its worth a shot to try and get the sensors working again with out taking the car into the shop. It may also take driving it a while until the TPC control module re learns the position of the sensors if they weren't installed in the same position before replacing the tires (eg: right/front,left/front etc). You also want to make sure the tire pressure is cold when you reset the light. If you reset the light after driving for a long period of time it will set the threshold at a higher psi due to the tires being hot from driving and then when the car sits for a while and the pressures drop again because there cold it may think a tire is leaking. If the light still won't stay off you might have to take it to a shop to be checked with a 'sds' or a tpc sensor tester.

Cls 500 is leaning to left u can hear a whistling sound when rising


I just bought a preowned CLS 500 and recently noticed the same issue. Whistling after I start and stop the engine. "Car too low" notice if I hit a speed bump too fast. Etc.
I'm guessing it has something to do with a leak in the air suspension.

Did you ever resolve your problem?

My mercedes Benz cls 500 has service D due... Does that mean it needs an oil change? because i gave it an oil change about 10,000 miles ago


Mercedes uses a service schedule with the letters A-H to denote the relevent maintenance recommended.A is the basic oil service and H is the most inclusive.The intermediate letters correspond to proportional services.The service light should be reset at the completion of the service.This can be done via interface or using the controls and menus on the steering wheel.The specific format for resetting is different for different years and models.Alldata is fairly accurate for reset guidelines,but is not correct on some.Make sure to use synthetic oil in all newer MB,especially with extended oil change intervals.

How do you change oil in 2006 mb cls and reset service indicator


Practice now is to do a Top Side oil change. This means the engine oil is vacuumed out of the oil pan via the dip stick tube with an oil extractor..

Why ? Because this is quicker, doesn't need a hoist or pit and you don't have to remove the fiddly under covers to get to the drain plug..

Mercedes deliberately places the bottom of the dip stick to withing 1/16" th on an inch of the bottom of the oil pan.

Most if not all engines no have no dip stick, just a cover plug.
Oil level is checked with the cluster and scanner.

Setting is usually around 53mm on the scanner read out.

Oil filter is to the center right of the engine under a screw on plastic cover.

Mercedes special tool needed to unscrew it or generic tool available at auto parts stores.

Oil filter kit comes with large O ring for cover and oil filter element.


To reset FSS you turn to your handy owners hand book and read about the Oil Service Reminder Reset.


It explains how to use the steering wheel buttons and the 'R' button on the left of the cluster.
