2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Problems

Stalling and/or "Crank no Start" Due to Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Poor AC performance Due to Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

Replace air filter when replacing failed mass air flow sensor

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor tends to fail. The engine air filter should be replaced when the mass air flow sensor is replaced; a dirty filter can allow debris to damage the new sensor.

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Reviews

I have a CL55AMG, this is my 4th MBZ. They were all great cars but I think this car is the cream of the crop. Even with the ABC issue that it has. If I let it set for 3 days it drops to were I have the RED ABC indication. Once I start the car and put it in gear the car raises and no issues then the ABC message. I also have bubbles drivers window, None of this keeps from enjoying the car. OBC
