Hello, the ABC stands for ACTIVE BODY CONTROL and is your hydraulic suspension. In order to know what is the possible causes I need to know the codes in the system so you will have to have the codes read with a mercedes scan tool. The cost associated with the hydraulic suspension can be great, the parts and labor are expensive so i always recommend the dealer since not a lot of shops outside of mercedes know much about the systems or can diagnose them.
