2006 Mercedes-Benz ML500 Problems

Problem With Ball Joints May Cause Creaking Noise

A problem with the ball joints can cause a creaking noise. There is an updated part to remedy this problem.

Steering Rack Prone to Leaks

It is not uncommon for the power steering rack to develop a fluid leak requiring replacement of the rack assembly. Loss of power steering fluid may also cause an abnormal noise and damage to the power steering pump.

Electrical switches in door latches may fail

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. A new door latch will need to be installed.

Incorrect Software Calibration May Cause Fuel Pump to Remain Powered in a Collision

Trailer Hitch Welds May Not Be Sufficient
