low range light
Just this weekend, I had this problem reappear. Everytime I started my ML the low range light will begin to blink.
I performed the steps described in the former posts, (starting the engine, putting it in neutral, pressing the low range button once, wait until it finish blinking (heard the low range motor engaging), turned off the low range by pressing once the button, waiting until the light stop blinking, and then turning the engine off).
After I restarted my ML, the low range light will not blink any more.. I am sure it will be ok for a couple of months. My former 2001 ML 320, never had this issue in all of it's 108,000 miles.
I wonder what is getting out of sync or when this happens. Maybe whenever I perform something in a particular order, it triggers this problem..?
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.
