Mercedes-Benz SL500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
We have taken it to 3 different mercedes mechanics and none of them have figured out why it is making the noise. If we open the hood it does not sound like it is coming from that area, but it is still inside the car. It seems to only happen after the car warms up.
I have a 1997 SL500 with 57000 miles on it and it was working great one day when I had the top open as soon as pressed the red botton to close the top the engine turn off and I couldn't start the car any more, I had it towed away to a mechanic when the car got there the engine started but the top never closed, mechanic said car needs a soft top panel control which cost ove $1000, I can not trust the mechanic word, is that possible?
they say its the gas tank needs to be replace.help ????

I can get them turn back on if I'm lucky wiggling the switch, inwhich is actually not loose. I do have a side rear taillight out it's a reach but with that cause it to do anything like that, seems to me to be a loose wire I don't know?

Windows are supposed to lower a bit when door is opened and then raise back in place when closed. Just stopped working suddenly. No fuses blown but radio required code at same time. Windows still work, just not that auto function that keeps windows properly seated in frame.
