20 Most Recent 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 Questions & Answers

First, make sure the battery is good. If it normally goes dead in 1 night disconnect the battery for 1 night and if the car starts the battery isn't taking itself down. The next thing to look for are things that can be on with the ignition switch off such as glove box light, trunk or hood light, brake light cigarette lighters if it has them, interior lights. For the bulbs you can't see like the trunk light open the trunk then quickly but carefully touch the bulb if it's staying on it will be hot to the touch. Be careful if some bulbs have been on a long time they can burn you. I hope this helps. Take care.

Reinitialize the system. Close all doors. Start the engine and apply the brake. Turn steering to full left lock and hold for two seconds, turn to right lock for 2 seconds, return to center. Repeat that procedure a couple of times. Move car forward and/or backward at least 30 feet. If there is no reset DTC and no stored or registered DTC, the MIL should go out.

You should bring it to an authorized Mercedes dealer, or call ahead to other sound sytem installers. They may have a tech who knows about Mercedes sound systems.

have a cooling system pressure test done . have a compression test done to check for head gasket problem. have a flow test done to check for blocked cores . Check coolant level in the radiator. fi the fan is connected on a viscous fan hub then replace the hub ( evident if the overheating occurs at stop lights or slow moving traffic of high engine rpm's as in going up hill). Check thermostat for opening and correct operation. Run fault codes to check for correct air/fuel ratio as lean mixtures will cause overheating..
