1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Problems

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

As vehicles age, various problems may develop with the hard and soft tops. If problems are encountered, it would be recommended to have a technician familiar with these tops perform the diagnoses.
