I have a 2000 ml430 and would like auto headlights and have the voice recognition reciver built in, my question is if i replace the whole combination switch from a 2002-newer ml, will it fit and will i get those features?

Voice control can be added, but I doubt the auto headlight feature would be an easy retrofit since it would require an update AAM and the appropriate sensor.

The 2002 combination switch(es) will not fit into a 2001 without some serious mods to either the switch or steering colum switch mounts. There is no pre-wiring for Voice Control in a 2001 either.

I added voice control to my 2001 ML and you can look here and at the links to my website to see what it took just to install the switch and VCM wiring.

The VCM retrofit is defonately worth it .... I use it daily!!
