Getting rid of beeping from proximity sensors when going through car wash?

I wash my wagon quite a bit with a paid month plan, lots of bugs here in Florida with all the driving I do. When I ride through the car wash the beeping goes crazy and the red leds come up on the screen surround the car picture. Anyone know of a way to mute this out. I tried hitting in the volume control mute, it does nothing. Maybe I'll just have to disable it in the assistance menu screen each time before I go though the car wash to save my sanity? I just thought of something I have not tried yet too, next time I'll just try turning off the command system with the off button to the right of the jog control. That would work I'd think, lol. Wow good thing I did this post, got me thinking about it a little bit more.

What I do is that there's a button in the centre console which you can press which disables the sensors. I just press it when I am in the car wash and press it again when I get out.



This is a google image of an E class center console but its essentially the button I drew a square around

Thought I tried that one the other day and it did nothing? I'll try it again next time I go though and if not I'll turn off the command and see what happens.

Do you put your CAB through the car wash as well? Is it a laser touch less wash?

With the Cab I've hardly washed it, it was at the dealer twice, once for the center console replacement and then just a couple weeks ago for the tire repair and each time they washed it and vacuumed it out. I did take it through a laser touchless car wash once. I don't think I'd take it through one of those car washes with the rolling brushes, although I guess benz says that you can as the top is pretty tough.

I haven't taken the CAB through a touchless car wash yet....was a little worried about leakage, due to the high pressure of the jets. Also, there have been threads that warn about the harsh chemicals and how it might affect the top. That's why I asked if you did without problems.

No issues, seems tight. A touchless carwash should be no problem.

You are awesome! The service guy at my Mercedes dealership said there is nothing I can do about it. I just tried it out this evening, and it works perfectly.

The quiet cabin was a major factor for me to pay the money for this car, and I really appreciate getting rid of the alarms in the car wash.

Yep I tried it tonight too, works like a charm. Thanks a lot, I'm in the car wash around twice a week and its nice to have silence now.

Also, don't forget to enable the valet mode in your glove compartment to prevent the trunk auto access from going off accidentally from the "under carriage" car wash sprays. Could make for a wet trunk.
