Repairs are costly and being without my car is something I hate. ACA was most helpful in minimizing all the discomfort associated with auto repair. Their courteous service and fairness in which I was treated was a welcome change from previous experiences. Thank you ACA Automotive.

In this case the repair shop could not find the cause of the problem..it was at this time they called the dealer when they are in trouble. I don't know if they have the right test equipment. This was the first time they have left a job incomplete. Wiring was left exposed,panels we not put back in place, screws were stripped and calls were missed. If this was my first time going to this shop I would not go back, but heretofore they have given great service. I guess everyone has a bad day. They did perform a smog test I didn't authorize but it was an attempt to repair the problem. They couldn't turn off a "check engine" light....which I did after returning home with the vehicle by disconnecting the negative terminal, this allowing the system to re-set itself....the orginal problem thaI I needed to have the vehicle pass the smog test....which it did.

Questions Answered by ACA Automotive
You would need to remove the dash covers and instrument cluster. You should be able to access the bulb from behind instrument cluster (a cover or two may have to be removed from the rear of the cluster to gain access to the circuit board).
The brakes are very soft. Have to push do...
I would start by attempting to bleed the brake system again. Seems as though there may be air stuck in the system. If no air is found when bleeding, there may be a leak and or the brake master cylinder may be bypassing.
There are many reasons that dash lights will not illuminate. It could be the fuse, switch or bulbs. I would recommend to diagnose the dash lights circuit to advise further. The reason that you cannot pass a smog inspection in CA due to no dash lights illuminating is because the state requires that we confirm the check engine light or MIL light properly illuminates to advise the driver there is an emissions related component that is not working properly.
No oil by valve cover
The oil may be a result of a few different scenarios. PCV restriction, engine blow by and/or intake manifold gasket/housing. The best way to go about finding out is to have an technician perform a diagnostic on the vehicle to determine the best repair. We are AAA approved and all technicians are ASE certified to provide you an estimate for repair. Just let us know if you would like to come in for the diagnostic inspection.

Mercedes has a very common issue with their door lock actuators. It is not uncommon for one or multiple to go out in close timing. I would recommend having a Mercedes certified mechanic remove the affected door panels and inspect, test and repair the necessary part(s).

When it comes the the cooling system of any vehicle. There can be multiple factors that can cause the vehicle to get hot. Any leak, air in system, cooling fan operations, head gasket pressure problems and of course the electrical sensors monitoring the system. We would recommend to diagnose the system to pin point the reason for overheating and go from there.

I would recommend to diagnose it, but it sounds like a starter problem. Make sure to check the flywheel teeth when you remove it.
