RE: Noise and a lag during acceleration... What is it?
On my former 2001 ML 320, I had some wheel sensor problems that produced the same lagging effect, during startup acceleration, and there was the humming sound from the brakes being applied lightly to control what the computer thought was a lightly out of control situation. Once the speed was constant or the accelaration was very smooth, then the problem dissappeared.
The dealer could not find the bad wheel sensor, right away, and it took several visits and frustrating months until they finally found the problem sensor.
2005 ML 500
Black, 18" AMG Wheels, 285/60R18 Yokohama Geolander HTS + Bi-Xenons(+ Drew's e-code mod, though the reflectors rusted off and do not give out much light anymore), Yakima roof bars, Akebono pads all around. Former vehicle 2001 ML 320 with 108K miles, when traded, and a large repair/defect history. After all these years of owning my current 2005 ML 500, it is a major unreliable vehicle with a very large/expensive repair/defect history and has been like this since brand new.
