One of two things. First the master switch on the driver side died (unlikely) next, you lost power or ground to the switch. Wires break. Open the drivers door. Look to the front, you will see a rubber boot going from the car to the door. This is usually where the wires break. Just a note. When they break here, I solder a wire to the car side and run it into the door side, cut it in to the appropriate wire. trying to fix them in the jam is a real pain and doesn't last long.

If the car hasn't gone into "limp home mode" then you should be fine to drive it but go easy on the brakes as there won;t be any ABS to help assist with heavy braking.

I've replaced both headlight bulbs in my 2007 E550. It is a true pain. The bulb is way inside a plastic housing that has a cap on it. You can probably feel the cap and the "handle" in the cap. It unscrews. Then the bulb is several inches inside the "tube." It took a couple of hours for me to install both bulbs. This was after the dealer did it and actually didn't get one of them seated properly. There's a short document you can get from the website called 07E_OM.pdf that should help.

The ABS brake system cant be bled by the average home mechanic. Your life depends on the brakes. take it to a brake repair shop.

You might want to get it scanned with a dependable Scanner, check to see if LOCK UP SOLENIOD, which is for the torque converter, is staying activated...if so it will have to be replaced. First thing you MUST do is have it SCANNED for DTC

this is a dealer only job iam afraid as they have to use special software to retract the calipers and as the pistons would not go back in iam assuming you undone the bleed nipples to get the pistons to go back in .Last time i done one of these i had the same problem but it was a newer model then a warning light came on so connected my code reader and the immobilisor came on as unauthorised access to the OBDII ,ended up in mercedes garage and the owner got a bill for 789 euros as it was mercedes spec to renew the disks as well as the pads every time they wear down ,and when i took owner to collect vehicle the new pads i fitted were not returned -- their was some snooty receptionist saying it wouldnt start because of illegal access to the OBDII ,i walked away before i hit him -- evidently the brake pad box has a bar code which has to be read with the light whilst vehicle is connected to the internet to confirm that they are genuine pads before the ABS and immobilisor is released by the factoy computer .About time i retired to a classic vehicle workshop
