2005 Mercedes-Benz ML350 ProblemsSteering Rack Prone to Leaks
It is not uncommon for the power steering rack to develop a fluid leak requiring replacement of the rack assembly. Loss of power steering fluid may also cause an abnormal noise and damage to the power steering pump.
A problem with the ball joints can cause a creaking noise. There is an updated part to remedy this problem.
Electrical switches in the door latches can fail, causing the door locks to rapidly actuate up and down multiple times when the locks are activated by either the keyless remote or door lock switch. The affected door latch should be replaced to correct this concern.
2005 Mercedes-Benz ML350 QuestionsMy ML350 won't start. I have to jump the battery. Is alt or battery bad? (3 answers)
After an accident, we left the blinkers on and I believe we drained the battery. It was jumped by roadside assistance, started, but 3 days later it wouldn't start anymore without a jump.
Had 2 friends who had 05 ml350's and both had some issues. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
