2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK320 Problems
Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.
The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern.
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.

The electrical issues range from dash lights to keyless entry. Now it stalls occasionally while driving and won't start back up for a while. I have replaced the k40 relay and the crank shaft sensor. Neither have worked.
thought it was on dryer but when loosened freon started coming out
Completely disassembled motor/cage assembly. The motor is definitely bad! Signs of arcing/burns,etc. Motor needs to be replaced but want to make sure resistor didn't cause the problem.
Thanks for any help you can provide>

Car wont crank at times for days then when it does it also go days like nothing is wrong.Its like it picks the days it wants to run.Car has 99000 miles on it.
Power on highway a plus comfort a plus interior paint on consul sucks fads dilaminates what a joy I love mine great happiness
Have had the common problems , replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and the engine management relay, both were simple DIY fixes. Had the tail light units replaced under a recall notice. Love the car. Handles and drives great. The Chrysler Crossfire shares 80% of the mechanical components with the SLK320. It is very helpful to buy a factory Crossfire service manual(2-3 vols).
