New User with ML320 error codes (pls help!)

Hi everyone, I've enjoyed reading this forum for a while and have benefitted from a lot of advice given to others (i.e "machine gun locks" issue) Now I seem to have an issue that I can't find the answer for so I figured it was time for me to register and start giving back a little. Here's what is going on:

2000 ML320 106k miles went into "safe mode" Reset and now it drives great but I have lots of dash lights and beeping. Here are the error codes I'm getting:


Once again the truck drives perfect. I did have the front brakes done the day before it went into safe mode but thats probably a coincidence.

I was out of town when the problem occured and took it to a dealer I'd never been to before. They told me the washer fluid leaked onto the ESP pump and it was burned out, wanted $2,800 + tax to replace. The story seemed weird because it didn't seem to match the error codes and I'd never seen a leak until they pulled it out of their shop so I refused service and drove it 4 hours back home. I'm ready to take it to my local dealer here but would like to see what opinions are out there. Thanks in advance for your help and I promise to contribute back to the board as much as I can!

P0136 O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
P0141 O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

P0500 Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction
P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction

From the first 2 codes, it looks like you have an O2 sensor that needs to be replaced. Easy to do. Just unplug the connection and unscrew the post cat sensor on that side. Autohaus az usually has the best prices on w163 sensors. (Just make sure the ML is cold when you do the sensor change.)

Not sure about the last 2 codes. You can do a search or post this on the w163 forum if you do not get an answer here.

Good luck and welcome to the board.
