2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG ProblemsEngine Misfire and/or Lack of Power
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.
Leaks in the pneumatic system will cause problems with the dynamic seats and the trunk and/or door closing assist.
The early versions of the central gateway module (which allows different systems to communicate with each other) have software problems.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG RecallsSensotronic Brake Control System May Default to Basic Hydraulic Mode
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.
