Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
we've had a big storm here in the bay area in the past few days.my remote and a whole bunch of other things have ceased to function, and some warning lights have come on the instrument panel. i was just wondering how much this is going to set me back.

Old post and Im sure you have the problem resolved.
I think it's important to clear the water drains at the front glass as most fuse boxes and some control units, relays etc. are found in this area.
I try not to park under trees as the leaves and twigs just love to plug the drains.
This doesn't sound good when you bring water into the equation. It's really hard to say without an inspection. Hopefully there are some Mercedes techs who have seen this before! Good Luck! And it's about time we get some rain in California!
