99 e320 acc. skid control bas asr any info on this is there something i can do ?

Auto Psychic :

hi, i'll be happy to help you in anyway i can.

Auto Psychic :

so your traction control warning lite is on, is that right?

Customer:

yes

Auto Psychic :

ok, usually this comes down to a loose connection, low voltage or a minor sensor.

Auto Psychic :

worst case scenario is a bad control module (rare)

Auto Psychic :

you'll need to have the vehicle scanned with a dedicated mercedes laptop to isolate the cause.

Auto Psychic :

you probably dont notice any difference in how the car drives, but bear in mind yoor antilock brake system may not work with the lite on, so avoild running into anything until you have it checked out.

Auto Psychic :

there are two things you can try on your owner before seeking professional help.

Auto Psychic :

disconnect the battery and touch the cables together for 30 seconds (capacitive discharge)

Auto Psychic :

turn the steering from lock to lock several times (steering angle sensor initialization)

Auto Psychic :

beyond that figure about an hours labor to diagnose.
