Hello Rosco, I wonder if you saw my posting #661 of 664 Re: Fuel Guage Not Operating Normally - PhxMax [phxmax] by 04350 Jan 04, 2009 (2:11 pm)...
The ML problem fixed itself after a few months; this is a little weird, but saved the few hundered $ my mechanics said it may cost. My ML has not had the issue again. My C Class has the same problem re-appearing just a few days ago, I am monitoring and no plan to fix; I will keep you posted. Phxmax.

After 47 1/2 months and 46,998 miles, I said farewell to my 06 ML500 and traded it for an 09 BMW X5 diesel.

#669 of 699 2001 ML 320 No power
Aug 15, 2009 (1:35 pm)
I tried starting my ML 320 Friday and everything was fine until my right hand hit the turn signal and high beam and the entire power died.
There are no lights, no automatic door locks. Nothing.
I took a "power tester" thing to see if power was coming from the battery and it was.
I opened the fuse panel inside the engine and found the power cable coming from the battery and there was power coming into there but I don't know what else to check.
I just replaced my battery about a month ago.
#670 of 699 ML350 Navigation and Lumbar Support - not working properly
Aug 23, 2009 (8:38 pm)
Hi Drew / Friends
I recently bought a 2009 ML350 with P1. I am facing two problems. One is with COMAND navigation. It doesnt announce street names though manual says that it will. Right now, it just says turn left or right or straight without street names. Am I missing something as I cant believe that MB Navigation system is so preliminary?
Second problem is with seat lumbar support. I dont have memory seats but my lumbar support gets activated and when I sit on the driver seat. Even if I reduce the lumbar support as it hurts my back, it will remain in the changed position till I drive. But if I switch off the car, and when I come back it gets back to its original position as soon as i sit in the driver seat. I can hear the motor sound to verify that lumbar support is working. This is very annoying to me as I have to adjust lumbar support back every time when I start the car. Is there any way to switch this feature off?

Yesterday while driving, my ML320 began to act like it was not getting gas at around 40 mph. The rpms went way up and the car slowed down. It does it most everytime the car is around 40 mph and sometimes also at 20 mph. I thought that it was a fuel problem but have seen no change since adding injector cleaner to the gas tank. Any ideas? Not sure if it is fuel-related or transmission but would like to have some idea before entering the dealership which rountinely sees us women coming.

I have the same problem. I changed the crankshaft sensor and it all went well for 3days but it happened again. The engine just died when im doing constant speed around 60km/h...I pulled over and start the engine, it start but rpm doesnt go up even though i step deeply on the gas..The car shake heavily, loss of power and it move very slowly and helplessly like it's going to die..but managed to travel 1-2KM to my house, lukily it was very near to my house. when i reached home, i step on the gas real hard a few times and it become normal again...I have changed original fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter, spark plugs (original MB) 2mths ago..Cant figure what's wrong. Have the car diagnosed few times, eveything is just fine, nothing's error. These hapened since 1mth ago since my battery died, i jump start it and get the battery changed. since then these all start to come out..Dont know it is is related..almost everytime the engine died and shake heavily happened at night time when all the lights and air con is on.. Dont know if this gotta to do with electrical or something else..
SOMEBODY HELP ME.......... Can email me for solution o experiences

I have just returned from my regular mechanic garrage. They diagnosed the car again and still find no fault. But found out that one of my battery head very loose. They tightened it, and make a 30mins test drive and found the car loose power, but not dead, they switch on air con and lights n drive around..car shake a bit and acceleration is very poor. drive it back to the garrage, they are giving me the last option. They recommend me to change the spark plug cables which total up 12 of them. According to their experienceds, poor sparks cable cant be detected in the diagnose..I thought i'd rather gamble for it n paid for the cables. everything seems fine for a 1hr drive to my house with heavy traffic..An I have just drive around to dinner with my family 1hr ago with all lights n aircon on. everything is fine. but due to my traumatoic experience. i dont want to be happy too soon. i will drive for a few days and update again..I am thinking of selling it away if this problem still happen again..but it is an inch away from perfection, cause ML320 is a strong and comfortable car..but who doesnt get frustrated with same problem on and on...Im thinking of going back to grand cherokee 4.7 V8, my previous car.much more torque n soft suspension and LESS trouble...
Anyone have a solution please kindly inform me by posting in this forum or email me gold3n_8oylive.com thanks
