BAS ESP, ETS, ABS & EPC lights on
Hello all new to the forum. I have an ML270CDI UK 04 Inspiration model and experiencing a problem with the above mentioned lights coming on at the start of every journey. I searched and searched this forum for matching problems and have added a reply to one which had the same symptoms but not had a reply for about a week now. Hence the new topic..
My symptoms are that first in the morning on my way to work, I drive the car for approx. 5 to 10 mins before the BAS/ESP/ABS lights come followed by the EPC. I then try and stop somewhere switch on and off and the lights clear and don't return for the rest of the journey approx one hour.
The same occurs in the evening on my way home....
Not sure how relevant or accurate this is,but I think the lights appear to come on on the first instance of accelerating. i.e. going through the gears quickly. Its an automatic of course.
Lots of similar problems mention the break-light switch, although some notes have contradicted this by saying that the ML270 doesn't have one. Also,whilst the dashboard lights are on the break lights work fine...
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
