2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Can you please re-ask this questions?

First, you said the button Unlocks the Car and then say it Won't?
Second, The lock/unlock does not control the Courtesy lights, there is a Time delay but now here is the kicker....

Does the Courtesy lights come on when you use the FOB ?

If they do, they you have a problem with the Button or the Button Controller or a wire.

Third, I am not sure what Button you are talking about on the REAR HEAD RESTRAINTS? Are you talking Head Rests? I have never heard of as HEAD RESTRAINT

you can go to advance or auto zone and have them do a drain test on the battery, there is no charge for it, if it is a electrical drain it will show it on there computer. If so then you have to start tracking were it being drained from and that is no
t easy or cheep.

There is no belt to do this, you must install a compressor bypass pulley also known as an "AC Delete" pulley. All cars come with the same belt with or without AC. Contact the dealer on this, but not sure they can help as AC is standard on US models unless you order it deleted, which of course no one does because of the wait time to have the car shipped from Europe due to the special order.

Replace all fluids, replace belts and hoses. Check brakes for proper operation, get tires checked and replaced as needed. Replace wiper blades. Sitting unused is the worst thing for any vehicle. Check all lights for proper operation as well.

Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.

TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.

NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

probably the FOB, just because other functions work does not mean that the lock/unlock will work. This is the most used function and the one that goes first.

If the sunroof is out of it's rail this is possible to happen , you have to reset it in position(by bushing it from inside the machine to upside) and then it will work.
