check your main harness wire. The harness wire becomes brittle and will eventually short circuit your car. Stalling and hard starting is the initial symptom. If not replaced soon, your car will smoke and eventually affect your computer box

Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.
Remember the blue FixYa button?

This can not be reset by conventional methods. This must be done through a scan tool. Usually only the dealer scan tool will communicate with the SRS module. If the SRS light is on you have other issues and they must be remedied before the light will go out. There is no way of knowing what the issue is without running codes with the scan tool.

Modern plastics seem to exude something that collects on all the surfaces inside the instrument clusters of many cars. When it settles on the pointers of instruments like the speedo and fuel gauge it produces the effect you mention, sticking the pointer to the rest stop until the meter has enough oomph to pull it free or you go over a bump.
If you have a good magnifying glass you should be able to see what's creating the problem by looking at the ends of the pointers..Actually, just condensation can do the same thing but it's not so sticky and you'd see a mist in the perspex cover too. Since the speedo and fuel gauge control comes from completely different areas these are the only thing I can think of that may link the two things. A couple of extractor hooks from MB would allow you to pull the instrument assembly from the dash. Disconnect the battery if you go this far as it's so easy to short something behind the instruments. Then it's a question of unclipping the two connectors at the back, pulling the cluster free, and unclipping the perspex cover. The procedure's well covered in the Haynes manual.

Fuel level sensor is in the gas tank, may be faulty or just dirty, make sure to fill the tank entirely full with premium unleaded, ad a high quality fuel system cleaner / de-gunker, this may clean the sensor enough to feed back to the gauge. It could also be the fuel gauge itself, but that is less likely. Mercedes will be happier with at least 1/4 tank of fuel at all times, and don't skimp on low octane gas!
As for the check engine light, you may have a bad gas cap... believe it or not a gas cap that doesn't seal properly will throw the check engine light. If you get the codes read (for free) at an Autozone or similar parts store it will likely read "evap system" as the problem, which will likely end up being the gas cap.
Take your car to a service center that does a true "flush and fill" of your a/c system. Those little canisters will just waste your money, and they never truly clean and re-lubricate the system like a flush and fill will do.
