Malfunction message

I have a 2003 E500. I saw a message on ny dash that all electronic consumers have been turned off due to a malfunction. This is the second time I got this message and it only happened at night. Also there doesn't seem to be any disruption in the electrical system when I get this message. lights, radio, heater all still work. Has anyone had any experience with this or know what it is. Thanks

Have you searched the W211 forum, should have numerous posts on this issue.

There are recalls issued for this, mainly the charging control unit software update and some HW updates too at least on certain cars, like the charging regulator unit.

I wonder if your car has been fixed with the SBC recalls if the charging issues have not been fixed.
