2008 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG ProblemsAirmatic Pump Relay May Stick and Cause Dead Battery
On vehicles with airmatic suspension, the airmatic pump relay can stick, causing a dead battery, because the pump continues to operate when it should be shut off. Eventually, the pump will fail; the pump, fuse, and relay will need replacement. After parking and exiting the vehicle, the airmatic pump should only run for a few seconds before turning off. It should not come back on until the driver's door is opened.
A problem with the ball joints can cause a creaking noise. There is an updated part to remedy this problem.
Due to slipping clutches in the transfer case, a shudder or rumbling from the center of the vehicle may occur, especially when turning at slow speeds. If the clutches are not too badly worn, changing the fluid will fix this problem. Otherwise, the transfer case will need to be disassembled to change the clutches.
