2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Problems

Engine -- Verified

Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Leaks in the pneumatic system will cause problems with the dynamic seats and the trunk and/or door closing assist.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

On higher mileage vehicles, wear causes noise at the vario roof seals. Lubricating the seals can usually cure the problem; in most cases, the seals do not need replacement.

Drive Train -- Verified

High mileage or older vehicles commonly develop leaks from the differential seals and/or cover. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit whenever these leaks are repaired.

Drive Train -- Verified

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid into the wiring harness. If not repaired, the oil will migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. At that point, a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct this problem.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Recalls (Recent)

Brakes, August 8, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to deterioration of the wiring harness connection or failure of the hydraulic pump, the sensotronic brake control (SBC) system may default to the hydraulic back-up mode. In the back-up mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, but greater brake pedal pressure is required and brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer. Dealers will install a bracket and replacement ground wire to the SBC pump unit on all affected vehicles. Additionally, dealers will inspect and replace the SSC pump unit in certain SL models. The Mercedes-Benz recall numbers are 2005070007 AND 2005110001.
