2018 E63 Air Body Control Malfunction

Well... I stumbled upon a 2018 E63s wagon at my local dealer. 2200 miles. CPO! Picked it up Saturday afternoon. Put maybe 150 miles on it. Wife gets big display tonight on dash. "do not exceed 50 mph, Air Body Control Malfunction" So glad to be back in a MB... Anyone else seen this?

Yep, had it happen to me. Here's my thread on it:

Good luck and I hope they get the ABC module faster for you than what I experienced.

Too many
I wonder if this car was a negotiated buyback and thats why it was already for sale as a CPO? If it was actually lemon law'd it wouldn't be able to have the CPO. Just throwing out a scenario as to why it may have issues so soon. I could be 100% wrong in my thought but its the first thing that came to my mind.

2 02' S600. Has your car been fine since? I would like to run my VIN through the Benz service system and see what kind of history this car has. Probably should have done that before I bought it but I figured, Its CPO... what could go wrong?

Yes, I have about 2300 miles on it now and it has been fine since it was fixed.

I have the same problem except mine was in the shop today and they replaced the control module and....problem still exists. Any they said it is not safe to drive. Hopefully resolved quickly!

Sorry to hear, hope the part comes in early next week and you’re back on the road. I remember how frustrating it was just waiting.

Usually any form of buyback will show up on sites like Carfax etc etc

Same problem

My car is in the shop. After they replaced the ABC my problem still exists. I hope its not a big deal and that it gets fixed quickly.

This is my second MB wagon in 6m. I traded in my first one for this one because it was in the shop too often. Hopefully not a trend. This is a highly tuned sports car and so I can give them some flexibility it working out bugs. My local dealer is really supportive and on top of getting things fixed but some stuff just seems to be out of their control.

ABC

My car was fixed in one visit. They hooked it up and the problem existed The reprogramed the system and it worked after that. So it was the module and programing. They had it a a total of 5 days. Works great now!
