Report: Electrical Switches in Door Latches May Fail
Mercedes-Benz ML350 Problem
Average Mileage: 87,567 mi (50,750 mi - 170,000 mi)
Electrical switches in the door latches can fail, causing the door locks to rapidly actuate up and down multiple times when the locks are activated by either the keyless remote or door lock switch. The affected door latch should be replaced to correct this concern.

Passenger side door lock would rapidly engage/disengage several times when either using keyless remote entry or when using auto lock when driving. Had to replace lock mechanism.

On my 2003 ML350 the passenger front door fires several times and then fails to lock. You can't even lock the door manually which is a safety concern. I felt it was unsafe to let my family ride in this car when the door couldn't be locked and we could not leave the car unattended which was a unacceptable situation when you are out of town over the holidays. We couldn't get it fixed because shops were closed and we couldn't leave Christmas presents in car because we were afraid someone would steal them.

This is the second time this has occurred.
The first time was the left rear door and now the right door.
It cost me $500 to fix it the first time.
So much for German engineering.
