Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

Since the malfunction light is on, you will need a scan tool to get the codes from the system. You need these to diagnose this problem. You may have a problem with the air ride compressor.

The first step is getting codes, not all code readers will work with this Mercedes so you will probably need a shop to scan it.

Sounds like the air shocks are not pumping up or the air ride has developed a leak somewhere.

There are a few different things that are causing your problem and getting codes will narrow this down.
