Customer Question
ASR light on 1994...

ASR light on 1994 SL600 is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The ASR light on the dash. Pulled blinking codes 6 & 38.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SL600 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced the stoplight switch, took out and re-sitted the ASR and ECM modules, adjusted the throttle cable...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Everything else on the car runs great but the ASR and car is in limp home mode. Thanks...
