hey how are you

1-the DTC 20CC is ,when the abs whee sensors nit reading correctly , you need to hook up and scanee and pull up the ABS wheel sensors and see which one is off compoaring ti vehicle speed

'Rough Road Detection' Signal (By Comparing Wheel Speeds) : Speed Signal From Control Module ESP Implausible :: Read Fault Memory of Control Unit ESP (P0500) Test Wheel Speed Signals Note: The actual values are supplied through CAN bus from component N47-5 (ESP, SPS and BAS control module). Test requirements - CAN communication to control module N47-5 (ESP, SPS and BAS control module) is o.k. Test sequence - Switch on ignition. - Rotate relevant wheel.(n > 1/min ) - Status of the relevant actual values: - Vehicle speed left front axle: Note! Communication with ECU required - Vehicle speed left rear axle: Note! Communication with ECU required Specified values - Vehicle speed > km/h Question - Are the actual values o.k.? Yes The actual values are okay. ** End of Test ** No The actual values are not okay. Possible cause and remedy - Read fault memory from control unit ESP and rectify faults.

3-DTC P0720 is output speed sensor circuit malfunction .

4- DTC P0600 , review diagram please

4-what is the car doing ?

5- because the DTC 20CC could be causing all these other codes

Please let me know

Thank You

All codes set without moving the car. I can't see the wheel sensor data because there is no communication with the ESP,ABS module
Mercedes Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 year ago

if you can not communicate with the ABS module , unplug the connector ,inspect for broken pins not making a good connection ,

if all good ,and you checked all your fuses , then replace abs module ?

is your scanner capable if communicating with Mercedes abs module ?

Please let me know

Thank You

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If there are no fuses blown and the BS module does not communicate then the most likely cause would be the module itself but it could be a loss of power or ground due to a wiring issue. What needs to be done is load test the power and ground feeds at the module as well as test the communication bus voltages. If ok then the module can be condemned.
