HI GUYS, I HAVE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS TRUCK SINCE I BOUGHT IT. I'VE READ SOME THREADS BUT NOTHING IS HELPING ME RIGHT NOW. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP WITH MY PROBLEMS. I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF U CAN. MY ESP/BAS/ABS LIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON. I TOOK IT TO THE MB DEALER AND THEY REPLACED MY ESP CONTROL MODULE, CRANKSHAFT SENSOR (IT WOULD COME ON BUT CUT OFF), ALL BRAKES AND ROTORS, STOP LIGHT SWITCH, AC/HEATER BLOWER AND RESISTOR (B/C IT STOP WORKING). EVERYTHING IS WORKING BUT THE LIGHTS WONT GO OFF AND THE TRUCK SHUTTERS WHILE DRIVING, PRESS THE BRAKES AND TURNS. THE LIGHTS COMES ON AND OFF WITH HAZARD LIGHT COMING ON. THE TRUCK FEELS LIKE ITS ABOUT TO SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING WHEN HAZARD LIGHT ILLUMINATES. A LOT OF RESISTANCE WHILE DRIVING. THE TRUCK RIDES ROUGH, LONG TIME TO IDLE DOWN. WHEEL ANGLE SENSOR STORED. ABS SENSOR DETECTED, WRONG PROGRAMMING DETECTED, SMALL EMISSION LEAK DETECTED.

Make sure you have the radio code to reprogram it.
Someone had done it to start "fresh". There are some other steps to it, too. Look in the forum for your ML model.
Place two card boards in front of front wheels, slowly drive forward to position the front wheels right over the card boards.
Disconnect the battery for 1 hour then reconnect it. Before test driving, start the engine, turn steering wheel slowly to full left then full right (the card boards help cold turning the tires). Re-synchronize the power windows (press up then hold for a few seconds). Re-code the radio.
By the way, Kragen/Pep Boys can check the health of your battery for free. MB electronics as told by other people is sensitive to battery level/alternator.
