2006 Mercedes-Benz E500 Q&A
2006 Mercedes-Benz E500 Question: Can replacing the front rotors and pads cause sensor miscommunications?
Just recently had this service (and had valve cover gaskets replaced in same service) and ESC unavailable was displayed in dash when starting car to leave. Car immediately returned to service dept. (never left pkng lot) and then after this was supposedly corrected after turning off then on vehicle by dlrshp the radio, Nav system did not work. 1.5 days later car was dead, stone dead couldn't even turn key in ignition??? - jboeschdds
The short answer is yes, if the sensors were not correctly installed. I don't know why the battery and whole electrical system went, dead, but poor installation of brake parts can definitely cause ABS sensor issues. - dandd
