Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is***** brake problem is usually caused by a bad yaw sensor. When the sensor malfunctions it causes the traction control module to think that the car is skidding and will randomly apply the brakes. You will need to get the car connected to a Mercedes tester to check for fault codes in the traction control system. More than likely there will be a fault code stored for the yaw sensor or for one of the other sensors in the system. The power steering problem could be caused by a ruptured hose or a leaking power steering pump. You will need to get the power steering system inspected for leakage. The only recall is on a low pressure power steering hose from the pump to the power steering oil cooler.

Hi, the steering problem and the brake problem are unrelated. It's actually a high pressure hose that causes the problem on the power steering not the low pressure hose. The hose would slip off of the connection at the cooler. The recall was to replace the hose only. Once you repair the leak the power steering should be fine as long as the pump was not damaged due to loss of fluid.
There is no re calibration for the skidding problem. This is simply a malfunction of the traction control system that needs diagnosis with the Mercedes tester.

The malfunction will most likely be caused by a faulty yaw sensor. Replacing the sensor will usually cure the problem of the skidding.
