Help - BAS/ASR and ABS orange warning light

Hi there, I have a 1997P Mercedes-benz Sl Class Auto Cabriolet, 3199CC Petrol, 2DR.

Recently the two orange warning lights BAS/ASR and ABS warning light keeps coming on every time i drive the car for 2 minutes.

My brake lights are working fine and the driving seems fine. Please can someone tell me what are the faults?

Much appreciated.

Ken

To make absolutely sure the codes will have to be read by a high end shop grade scan tool with the MB/German software or a Mercedes SDS computer.
There are at least a half dozen sensors in that are a possibility and at least 3 control units. No point in just throwing parts at it until you know what to fix.

Another great example of innovation, I am glad to find it. There are so many developers working on this segment but this is one of the best innovative idea ever. Thanks for sharing it here.

You need a shop that has the ability to scan and read codes for high end European cars or has a Mercedes Benz Star diagnostic computer to find out exactly what is going on.
These scan tools cost thousands so you will need to find a reputable shop or dealer in your area.

I had the identical problem and replacing the brake light switch did it for me too. At $15 (OEM from dealer) and a fairly easy DIY, thought I'd give it a try before taking to the shop .. and it worked.

We always know that the BAS and ESP will usually be the brake lamps switch, nice to know sometimes that it will take away the ABS warning as well, this does not always show up on the dash.

I had this problem on a 2002 E320 2WD. The first indication was the brake light switch but the repair was temporary (a few days) the problem was then apparently the headlight switch at far greater cost. It has been fine for about two years but is now recurring. I really hope it's just the brake switch again!
