Brakes, August 8, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to deterioration of the wiring harness connection or failure of the hydraulic pump, the sensotronic brake control (SBC) system may default to the hydraulic back-up mode. In the back-up mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, but greater brake pedal pressure is required and brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer. Dealers will install a bracket and replacement ground wire to the SBC pump unit on all affected vehicles. Additionally, dealers will inspect and replace the SSC pump unit in certain SL models. The Mercedes-Benz recall numbers are 2005070007 AND 2005110001.

Brakes, October 21, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

High mileage combined with a high number of brake actuations, or a high brake actuation frequency, can cause the pump motor of the SBC to run out of permissible tolerances. As a result, excessively high pressure may build the high pressure line of the brake system. If this occurs, the system will switch into the hydraulic function mode as designed. Sensotronic brake control is disabled when the brake system is functioning in the hydraulic mode. Dealers will inspect the SBC hydraulic unit and replace it if necessary to correct this concern. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2004 050014.

Mercedes-Benz E500 Reviews

the real airbag go down over night when it set down a long time what may cause that to happen.

I have a E350 Mercedes Benz wagon and I have always taken it to Auto bahn motors in Belmont to fix any problems on my car. I also bought my car there and three other cars there in the past. I am being charged $1250.00 for a new fuel pump, but not the whole fuel pump system. I sometimes feel that because I always take my car there to be fix that they tend to charge me too much. My question is-Is $1250.00 for just the fuel pump too much? Am I being overcharged for this and has there been problems with the fuel pump system with many other people with this same car?
