1995 S 500
Hi doctorc, I replaced the ETA, but I realized after that my throttle linkage was poorly lubricated and little sticky, as a result ASR would come on,it always happened in the Springtime, when the car sat for a long period of time,eventually it would work itself out after numerous restarts and ASR would not come on. I never thought of checking the linkage,maybe it was the ETA,not sure but the ASR light has not come on since installing the ETA and lubing the linkage 20,000km's ago, the plus of all this is the increased MPG.

Regards

Forgot to mention that the ASR light initially came on after installing the new ETA, it was after the linkage lube that the ASR never came back on. Coinsidence maybe.

ASR / ABS light on. Heavy steering and no Speedometer

ASR / ABS light on. Heavy steering and no Speedometer. These were all caused by a single blown fuse in the can. The can is a black module under the hood on left side of car. Its where the computers live. Just unscrew the lid and lift it off. There's nothing scary about it. Cause of my distress was a flat battery and I received a jump start but the guy shorted my terminals. This blew the fuse. Cost of repair was 25 cents.

1992 500SEL
fixed Srs light

Just finished finding a fix for the SRS light on most of the time on my 92 500SEL. One clue was the light flashing sometimes when I turned a sharp corner. I removed the steering wheel, and found the 4 brass slip rings badly oxidized. Cleaned them spotless with a tiny wire brush on the Dremel, and also cleaned the brushes that contact the rings. Finished with electronic parts cleaner, put it back together, and Presto, the light goes out instantly and never comes back on.

1997 MBZ S420
ASR/ABS/check engine/ a/c blower motor

1997 S420 w 185000 mi. ASR light appears intermittently but goes away after several engine stops and starts. Its occurrence was very unpredictable. Replaced brake light switch, fuses, etc. No change. Last month battery warning light came on. Replaced voltage regulator myself (warning, too much work but better than the $950.00 indie shop was asking.) Alas, ASR or any malfunction light indicators are gone. Check Engine light? gone. Also, before I replaced the voltage regulator, the a/c blower stopped working. AC controls and compressor all functioning. Bought a blower resistor thinking that it was the culprit. Everything went back to normal after I replaced the regulator.Now I have a spare AC blower resistor. My non-expert conclusion. When the alternator/ voltage regulator is in its last stages, so many thing can go wrong since the ECU senses an intermittent drop in voltage. I hope this helps.

Thank you very much! You've just saved me a lot of time and a lot of money i assume I had absolutely same symptoms, and you were right - under the black module lid there were three 10A fuses, one of them was blown (also, after a jump start), and when i changed the broken fuse everything went well!
Thank you again!
