#148 of 167 I have a new ML350
Oct 12, 2004 (12:44 am)
I just received my 2005 ML350 special edition. In fact I have seen a lot of bad comments from ML owners specially older models. However, I believe that it is a good car and I really love it. My car is equipped with a fix-phone, and tinted glass in addtion to other features like the Parctronic and CD changer, third row seating, power dome and front styling bar. It cost me $40M. How does this price seem?

I just got my ML 500. With Special Edition and Entertain and Sunroof.
I just wonder if the Park Assistant (after market) is really useful because my early one was a coupe. That vehicle doesn't come with the Parktronic and the dealer siad he could not install it, only after market.
Also, need a suggestion on how much shall I pay for an DVD system installed.

I found the Parktronic very useful specially at tight parking lots. With regard to the DVD, one of my friends installed it for ~$750
How much did you pay for your car? Does it have a third-row seating?

The UK-based Mercedes Enthusiast magazine is searching for an ML55 AMG owner as part of a feature on the M-Class. It would only involve answering a few questions and sending us a photo of you & your car - not a lot but we'd appreciate it and you get to see your name in print!
Wherever you live, if you're interested or know someone who might be, send an e-mail to jfallonedmunds.com.
#154 of 167 How does low range work?
Mar 13, 2005 (9:45 am)
My wife's '99ML seems to be stuck in low gear, and she's lost the owners manual. I'm going to call the dealer on Monday, but I thought I'd ask: Does low range automatically shut off when the ignition is turned off? It might solve her problem. Thanks.

I am guess that you see the Low range light on in the dash. You need to bring the car to a stop. Move the main gear selector to 'N' (Neutral) and then turn off the low-range by pressing the low range button on the dash.

Can you send me roberts instructions? I've also setup new XENONS in my German(Imported into Switzerland) Brabus ML27CDI. The are not working properly. Did you have to go to the dealer to turn them on?.
The instructions I worked from are:
HALOGEN Connector (Cable from ML)
¦ A H ¦ A..... pink ..... low beam
¦ B G ¦ B.... orange
¦ C F ¦ C .... blue
¦ D E ¦ D .... not used
E .... brown .. ground
F .... green .... city light
G .... white..... high beam
H .... grey ..... fog light (connected to separate Brabus Spots)
E-Code bi Xenon Headlight Connector
¦ A H ¦ A .... brown.........ground
¦ B G ¦ B .... not used
¦ C F ¦ C .... not used
¦ D E ¦ D ..... not used
E .... brown ....... ground
F .... White ....... high beam
G .... gray ......... city light
H ..... yelllow ..... low beam
This meant that I need to pull out ( with pliers) and swap the following pins in the connector cable plug from the ML:-
The pink[low beam] needs to connect to "H" on the headlight
The gray[fog light] not implemented (wire directly to your fog lights)
3. Swap white "G" & green "H"
The white "G"[High Beam] needs to connect to "F" on the headlight
The green "H"[city light] needs to connect to "G" city light
Because there is only 1 Ground connector on the ML Cable (Brown), I hade to short "A" and "E" in the headlight as follows: -
1. remove the plug on the Bi-XENON Headlight and connect on side of a new wire with (spade) the long spade on the inside of the plug, and the other side of the new wire with(solder) the ground terminal at the bottom of the Bi-Xenon reflector housing.
