2004 SL500 2002 SLK320
I got my recall notice today and shock my head after I read the paragraph below. I went through a stop sign at 30 MPH and prayed that the car would stop. Of course the dealer could not find nothing wrong. The dealer said it may be a while before the car adapts to me because of the adaptive system. BS.
The SBC brake system in certain E-Class, SL-Class, and CLS vehicles, in certain instances, may shift to hydraulic back up mode due to loosening of the ground wire harness connection over time. In hydraulic backup mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, although greater brake pedal pressure is required and the rake pedal travel will be noticeably longer which could lead to a vehicle crash.
