Customer: desperately hoping you can help us...we have a 2005 ML 500 with some strange recurring and worsening electrical/communication problems...I found you through a google search hit from a thread you posted with a mechanic in Australia two years ago. The vehicle is running/starting/shifting perfectly, battery
has been replaced by dealer in the last 6 months but problems are getting worse. Initially the entire instrument cluster would occasionally twitch then all needles would drop to 0
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: initially just the cluster...now the headlights and interior dome lights flash and the nav system is acting really strange....it works but is slow to respond...takes 20 minutes to input a destination and gets stuck...as of today the cd player won't function
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Mercedes Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: absolutely as long as Michael can help me....I specifically found him through this thread and believe my problem may be similar...his specific expertise is of value to me... http://www.justanswer.com/mercedes/7lv6y-sl500
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
