What I am saying is that the mechanic says the brakes are fine. There is something, however, that is making the sensors trip that is not a problem with the brakes themselves. He said could be dirt or a bunch of other things. The sensors reset on restart. He told me not to worry about it unless the sensor trips again when you start the car and keeps on doing it. At that point it is time to replace the sensors. Again, nothing wrong with the brakes, just the stupid sensors. Mucho $$ to replace.

Lightbulb srs light/abs

hi,i had the same problem with my c220,it turned out to be a number of factors,one was the two front seat belt keepers and the other was a seat sensor pad on the passenger seat,common problem in europe.there is a sensor in each keeper on the front and sometimes can be reset by unplugging the 3 plugs under the passenger seat and the 2 plugs under the drivers seat but be careful as these wires are very fine and can easily break.unfortunatel i had to replace these in my car and at a cost of 1000euro.hope this wont be the case here.
