Help!!..brake,EST,BAS/ESP lights won't go off
and the car won't stop beeping. I was replacing the 3rd brake light and the two small license plate lights and afterwards, the car would not start. It only took me a few minutes to swap the lights but I figure the battery might need a jump start. On first attempt, the jump start seemingly did not work. Out of curisotiy I opened the fuse box under the hood of my 2000 ML430. I pulled the relay for the ESP/BAS lights just because i was at a loss and thought maybe i blew a fuse replacing the lights. Turns out my moron of a cousin did not connect to jumper cables to his car correctly, and when I reconnected the cables to both cars my car started up instantly. Then the real trouble started! At first when I drove the car, around certain turns the BAS/ESP, EST, and Brake lights on the intrument panel came on, the car also makes a beeping noise. Yesterday was day two and the problem got progressively worse. Now the BAS/ESP and others will not go off at all(except maybe for a second here and there, while driving) the car in incessantly beeping. All the brake pads have been changed less than 1k miles ago, the fluid is fine, and the streering sensor "trick" did not work. Also, interestingly enough the car does not seem to lose performance while driving. Can anyone shed some light on this problem for me? I'm desperate for DIY answers because I can;t afford to go to the dealer right now. They will inevitably say they will fix it by replacing the motor and charging me 30k to do it, with a smile. They alwasy lie and make small problems into expenisive repairs. Any help would be tremendously appreciated. I can't deal with the beeping incessantly.
