I hit one of those orange cones the other day at about 20 mph with the right front of my car and i think i ended up running over it. This caused both the BAS and ABS lights to come on. What do you guys think happened on the car to cause these lights to come on?

you can try to reset the ABS/BAS by turning the steering wheel full lock right then left... or left then right... can't remember which... it may just be that the sensors got skewed when you hit it.

not when its locked... turn the wheel with the car running... full lock means full left then full left.

If you ran over it, maybe it knocked the wiring loose to one of the speed sensors or something?

This technique just resets the steering sensors for the ESP... so any Merc that has ESP, this will work.
