All the problems listed I too have experienced with my E430 2001 -
began to have this problem at 30K mileage, replaced the entire unit for warranty. then by 50K mileage the problem recurred, replaced the entire unit again, also at extended warranty coverage. then at 75K mileage, problem resurfaced again, this time i gave up and let the problem stand without any correction. -
Temp, clock and some of the computer module readouts have gone bad. Mechanic is looking in salvage yard for replacement component. Not worth $2500 on a 14 year old vehicle. -
