1998 SL 500


My wife and I have a 1998 SL 500 as well as a 2007 C230. Love them both.

One minor problem with the SL: If the trunk closes a little too hard, the light on the dash stays lit as if the trunk is open. If you then open the trunk again and gently close it the light goes out. Anyone know if this is a senor problem or something along those lines?
