Service Campaign 2006080001 AUG06 Install software for navigation system; affected vehicles may have incorrect COMAND navigation database installed.

It is absolutely essential to connect a battery charger during workshop visits.

S550 , S430
Question how find out what SB is applicable?

Most of the DTB Star Bulletin is listing a range of VIN that are applicable.
However, dealer will not fix all SB issue unless customer brought up the symptom.

Is there a way to see what are the SB that are applicable to a car?

I am trying to get most of the applicable Star Bulletin fixed since manufacture warranty is coming an end soon.

Thank you much in advance!

This topic is gold, I didn't however find any campaign regarding this:

- Active Light Sensor inoperative
- ESP inoperative
- Run Flat Indicator inoperative
- Parktronic & Distronic inoperative

Consequences : the engine will switch on, but it's impossible to move the car as it doesn't respond to gearbox controls (also horn, menu buttons, volume buttons, etc. on the steering wheel do not function).

Note, when a bulletin or service campaign is released it does not necessarily apply to every vehicle. As previously mentioned by Jack, most listed here are very minor and affect early production vehicles - sporadically. When you’re ready go for the 221 – you will not be disappointed.
common intermittent malfunction on a 221 are the pneumatic suspension, charcoal canister shut off valve, considering its predecessors, this is definitely minor and not hard to fix.

If there is a recall or something, will the dealer have to fix the issues at MBs cost? My car is out of mnfctr warranty, who will pay for recall?
