Customer Question
Esp light is on...

Esp light is on. I havent driven the vehicle since November 2017. I store in in a garage during the winter. At last driving, the light was not on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the light been on for some time?

I started the vehicle in January. Light was not on. I started it again in February. The light came on while idling for 5 minutes.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 Mercedes?

It is a 2006 CLK 350 convertible

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

It is still sitting in the garage I ams toring it at

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

No, that is the basic problem. Car sitting in garage since 11/2017. Started it 1/2018, no light on. Started it 2/2018, light is on. Started it last week, light is still on. CAR HAS NOT been driven or moved since being parked for winter
