Hi, please reply back to this question. Do not open a new question to reply.

Is the car getting low at the front or rear suspension when the ABC warning comes on?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
say drive carefully in red
restart it
the code says memory code has one malfunction
then goes red again

Ok, more than likely the ABC suspension pump has failed. If the car is still st normal height the ABC control unit is probably detecting low pressure from the pump. You need to get the car to a Mercedes specialist to have a diagnosis done with the Mercedes tester. The diagnosis will give him the specific fault codes that are causing the warning to come on. There are other possibilities such as low fluid level due to a leak in the system or a fault with one of the sensors but low system pressure is the most common issue if the ride height is normal.
