1997 E420 1st MB

Howdy from Calgary! Just picked up a very nice MB with 260km but wanky electronics. Check Engine has been on for some time, so I'm starting with the gas cap and (missing) O ring seal. Previous owner has spent near $3k on ESP light to no avail. Any suggestions? Still haven't got codes read yet but will get after in the next week or so.
Car is rattle and squeck free, rides like a dream (front end replaced at 200km) leather is like new... Great car!
Just finished a total restore on a 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo so this is the next hobby project. I really would like to thank everyone for their posts etcetera on these models because that's what convinced me this will be a great car (just like the Volvo)!
