ML350 2004 door locks (2) makes noise does not lock randomly, others OK

11 Sep 2019 •
ML350 2004 door locks (2) makes noise does not lock randomly, others OK.   Strange, first just front passenger side was having machine gun door issue, now suddenly that became OK, same instant, problem shifted to rear driver side, goes up and down machine gun noise.    Is this individual door actuator problem? if so, how automatically without doing anything front passenger side became OK on its OWN. Driver side rear actuator was replaced 2 years ago, why did it break again, is the problem somewhere else? common controller? signal issue?

2010 Mercedes C207 aux battery location

10 Sep 2019 •
Need to know where the aux battery is on a 2012 e350 coupe "C207" It is not in the trunk and I have taken the drivers side dash apart with no luck. All the info I can find is for a w212 that shows removing the panel on the side of the dash with a bolt holding the battery box. I do not have this. Any help would be appreciated or pictures of it's location.   Thanks Jason

Mercedes 2005 C240 Stuck in 2nd gear

8 Sep 2019 •
I have a C240 Mercedes with 220k miles. I had the Drive in S (sport mode). I was putting along on a busy interstate and floored it to change lanes. As soon as I did this something seemed like it slipped and then it went into limp mode in 2nd gear. I drove it about 3 miles after that. I parked it and unhooked the battery cables and touched the positive and negative cables per the instruction of a friend. This was to get it out of limp mode and discharge any residual current that might be stored. I started it and it clunked going into reverse. I got it out on the road and it was still stuck in 2nd gear. I tried to drive it home about 70 miles so I drove about 50 mph in 2nd gear. Stopped to get gas and when I restarted the car it was in 1st gear. Tried unhooking the cables and let it sit for a while and could not get it to shift into 2nd, still stuck in 1st. Took it to a friend who cleared all the codes and he told me 3rd gear is out of it and it needs a new transmission. The car had been sitting for a week in my drive: I started it, put it into reverse (no clunking noise), backed it out and when I took off it was in 1st gear, it shifted into 2nd but still will not shift into 3rd. When I slowed down and stopped it did not go back into 1st it was again stuck in 2nd. I have read through several articles on this page. Many state that it is probably not the transmission but electrical. Reaching out to someone who is in the know for a diagnosis. Thanks, Joe
