Talking 1996 R129 SL500 ASR and EPC lights on

Hi, I have a 1996 SL500. For no reason the ASR and EPC lights have come on. Now the car runs extremely rough and in limp mode. I can also restart car and after 6 to 8 attempts, car will run fine with no lights on. I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me out.

Thank you.

You really need to take it to a shop and get the codes read. If you have an OBDII reader by all means hook it up and see what you get, but it's not going to tell you why those warning lights are on. 1996 is the first year that those modules can't be read with a flash code reader.

Stephen please help

I have the same exact problem with my 1996 sl500. Today, I spent 40 minutes trying to start the car without the 2 lights turning on. One shop told me it's a problem with the throttle body.

How did you fix your car? what was the problem?
