Hi everyone. New to the forum. I bought my ML for 500. Thinking it was a good deal. Thre lady who owned it before had it for 19 years. She said that her mechanic quoted her 1500 to fix and was letting it go so cheap because it didn't run.
The engine starts and it engages all gears. So it had nothing to do with the engine or transmission (i think). Anyway, when i first got it, all 3 lights were on the dash (esp, bas, brake) thinking those were thr issue, i changed thr yaw, lateral and brake switch/sensors. All lights disappeared.
When you try to drive the car, it feels like the car wants to lock brakes at least the front driver. Sometimes it feels likes both front try to lock.
I tried driving it and it locked up and forced a stop. It does it on reverse but doesn't force me to stop. I can hear it grinding around.
One thing to note, i cannot push the car on neutral. The car is totally locked in neutral too.
I disconnected the ABS unit and the ESP fuses. And it still does it. (Does it have a secondary ABS or ESP comp?)
I changed out the front driver axel because the boot was busted. I also changed out the front diff thinking that was the issue and it still does it. I could have bad luck and picked a bad one from the yard.
I have a reg ODB reader and no codes are showing. No lights on the dash on.
I am gunna attach videos. Let me know what you guys think is going on. Thank you!!
