Post New to Benzworld

Newbie to Benzworld . I own a 1994 E320 Wagon , Great car !!

I need your help keeping it running 160,000 miles..

Here are some items that I need expert advice on..Thank you for your help !!!

1. Strange occurance check engine light has been on for some time due to codes for egr and upshift dely..recently I noticed the abs and asr lights flickering on and off .they are permenantly on now. steering is a little heavy but brakes work and nim not running in limp mode (the check engine light is now off and no codes are showing) to address the abs/asr, i removed and cleaned wheel sensors (they had black debris attached to them) . disconnected battery for half hour ...dash lights are still on do I properly reset the system and turn out the lights ?

2. lost cruise control at about the same time .

3. lost ac 10 months ago after a refill stayed cold for several days then nothing ...had strange musty smell . Not certain I want to go for a new evaporator core . what are the proper steps to diagnose for sure if the core is gone / any way to repair with out removal?

3a. defroster not performing well seems that moisture appears then burns off after a good while /the more people in the car the longer it takes to clear. smell just a whiff of coolant for a minute or so after turning on ..Any thoughts on how to diagnose this problem.
