Customer Question
1994 Mercedes sl320 was...

1994 Mercedes sl320 was running fine. I went out to start it and it didn’t start. There was a beeping and the roll bar triangle lights were flashing as well as the light with the wheel next to that

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

The triangle lights on the roll bar switchon the center console and the traction control button next to it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SL320 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet

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

No other than the roll bar is working
