The abs light came on in my 2003 sl500. Took it to my mechanic. Mechanic says, mice have chewed on the wires because the wires have wheat in whatever the wires are made of. Can this possibly be true?????

think maybe knocked off disengaging engaging rods.any way to get into trunk?

First the left side at 27,000 and now the right at 33,000.

ABC illuminated, checked reservoir, still had enough to make it home, arrived home with passenger side touching wheel and red "Ding!" Stop! Car too low on the computer screen. Now my car is completely dropped on passenger side. HELP! WHAT'S GOING ON???

VIn# WDB1290672F095871, I have tried Mercedes not available anymore my one is a digital 260k speedo, I have been told no other Cluster will fit, can anyone recommend a place that I can contact for such an item.

a new bulb the right front light doesn't always light up. No reason why now it does and then it doesn't

Only when it sits in the sun all day. If it is shaded or in my garage it doesn't do it. I start out in drive and within seconds it starts shifting to 5, 3, 1 4.

code says cylinder one is misfiring then three or four more misfire. check engine light comes on...when i stop and restart...runs fine and after a couple cycles the check eng light goes off till the next time. seems to be random

dash clock not dimming during daylight, bought used one on ebay. this one not illuminating at all. does the clock have to be reset
