| | BAS ESP A160 - HELP!!!!!
Hi all new to this site I bought my A Class a few weeks ago with 50K on the clock. My first Mercedes. Been experiencing problems with my A160 - BAS ESP light flickers on/off and the car completely loses all power, no response from gearbox, press down on accelerator, no response. Car doesn’t even idle no revs just completely shuts down. It comes magically back to life when I restart the car. Happened in traffic on the motorway - shifted from 5th to 3rd to 1st, car powered down and I broke slightly to a stop. Lifted up on the accelerator and the BAS light came on, could hear the car struggling and the car shut down.
I really enjoy driving my A-class but after reading the vast array of problems that this could be I’m at a complete loss to where I start in trying to rectify this - should I take it to MB to solve, or can anyone help me diagnose a solution to this recurring problem that’s driving me crazy. HELP!!!!!
