Yaw sensor was kaputt
I own a Mercedes Benz (w210 WDB2100821X017251) E320 4matic 1998 model
Two weeks ago I got three errors in the dashboard info screen BAS, ESP, ABS and two warning lights in the instrument cluster. This only happen when I start driving in the morning. If I turn the engine off and restart it then it will stay off.
But now it´s on all the time. When I start my car, switch the light on, press on the brake pedal and put it in D/R nothing happens. But when I release the brake and the car starts to move just a couple of feet then the light´s pop up.
This is what I have tried and done.
1st disconnect the battery (by the way new battery installed 1 month ago)
2nd tried the steering wheel trick, start the car turn the steering wheel fully to the left then to the right then turn the engine off.
3rd Bought a new brake switch and install it
4rd Visit the Mercedes Benz dealer and got it through star-diagnostic test.
There was like 20 codes (the car had a dead battery). I only got to see few of those. ESP yaw sensor, something about low volt and parktronic.
The mechanic told me it is the yaw sensor to blame. OK I then ask what is the price of one yaw sensor. He told me it cost roughly 2000$ without the labor.
OK I´m not sure if he found the right sensor in the EPC programme. This 2000$ sensor was named acceleration sensor in the EPC is it the same as yaw sensor?
Here is some pic of the sensors
This is named acceleration sensor in the EPC that I have, the part no is A 012 542 04 17 I found it only cost 180$ on German eBay. It is located behind the shift leaver
Here is the turning rate sensor the part no is A 00 542 65 18 it cost 150$ in UK. It is located under the driver seat under the carpet.
Can some one advice me which one is the yaw sensor and if I should replace the sensor myself?
Best regard and Happy Holiday's
