New ML 55 AMG Member!

Hey glad to be here! I am the proud new owner of 2001 ML55 AMG with 62K miles and boy am I a happy camper! I love this vehicle but have already had some minor issues to deal with! A stuck license plate that refused to come off which resulted in a taking apart the interior trim on the hatch to "break off" the OEM mounts and install stainless steel pan heads with double nuts...

and now I have the funky gas guage thing going on but here is the rub...after searching th forums I read all the threads on this issue...the previous owner of the car had the fuel pump and lines changed back in June 08 about 9500 miles ago...and now I have the issue of the guage not reading full after fill up at least will pop up either after a few miles or several ignition what gives? I read the tech memo on the reprogramming but wouldnt you think the dealer would have done that when they changed out the 2001 OEM pump?

Now the first time i filled up i had the key in the ignition with the radio on...i hear this is a no-no? Today i gased up in NJ, car off key out of the ignition and the "pumper" gave a couple of clicks after the full this an issue?

In any event I love my car and will hopefully enjoy it for many years to come This site is awesome and the info it provides!

Hi Evan and welcome to the forums. I also have a ML55. The only problems I've had is the fuel gauge acting strange. I had it reprogrammed at the dealer with no change. Wish I could tell you of an easy fix, but I haven't found it yet. Enjoy your new ML!
