Customer Question
I have a swishing...

I have a swishing sound of water under the floor of my mercedes and It's got a wire that has caused corrosion with a wire that's under the passage seat..the radio stopped working and I have flashing lights in the dash board also the passenger seat seat beat keeps ringing if I don't have the belt plugged in

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

There lights are on all the time so there's something shorting out somewhere

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

It's a 2006 ml 350 it has 160 kms on it

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

I've taken it to one mechanic he said there's corrosion on the wire under the passenger seat..but we're not sure where the water is coming from under the floor

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

I had the sunroof replaced lad T year and the battery but I was thinking water might be coming from there..have had problems with the locks at times

Hi, sorry for the wait. My name is***** battery compartment underneath the passenger seat should be inspected for water intrusion. When water leaks into the front of the car it winds up filling the battery compartment and shorting out modules in the compartment. Any modules that have water intrusion will most likely need to be replaced. Water can enter through the sunroof drain hoses or the front cowl area. The roof drains and the cowl should be checked for proper drainage. Water can also intrude into the cargo area and wet the rear signal acquisition module. The rear module is located underneath the rear fuse box. It should also be inspected for water intrusion.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Marty
