    This is a $4000 repair and it will keep doing it at the most precarious times. It won't "go away." Mine started it 2 weeks after I'd bought it. I wonder how he got it to "suppress" while he was closing the sale with me. I forget what the part is; I must have a record of it someplace. If so, I'll get it to you.

    Very embarrassing considering you're driving a Mercedes.
