1997 Mercedes-Benz S500 Problems

Closing Assist/Door Lock Issues Due to Pneumatic System Problems

Problems with the pneumatic system can cause closing assist and door lock issues.

Electrical Issues Due to Degraded Engine Wiring Harness

The engine wiring can degrade because the insulating material falls off leaving the bare wire exposed. This can cause many problems depending on which wires are exposed and what they touch.

Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
