you have hydropneumatic suspension that is electronically controlled. it is very user unfriendly to diagnose, even if you had the MB software and MB's work shop system. you really need to find a reputable MB specialty shop to check this out.

Where is the reservoir located and what fluid does it take to fill it? Our car did not come with any manuals or guides for trouble shooting.

this vehicle uses ride height sensors and a control unit for suspension,if sensors are not calibrated correctly susp will not rise,this is a very complex system wich should be serviced by a mercededs specialist
