Dropping the front pressure would lead to the edges wearing more than the center.
Think about it, the edges of the tread cannot expand much as they are held in place by the sidewall of the tyre.
The centre section of the tread can be expanded outwards by additional pressure to the tyre.
You could try a few more PSI in the front tyres to 'push' the middle / centre of the tread out a little more to counter act the wear on the edges.
Vehicle geometry can go out quickly so maybe worth a recheck and look for wear in any suspension / steering components.
You could ask whoever does...
Just had similar on mine. It seems on these systems, when a single sensor fails it shuts down the whole system rather than just disregarding that sensors input like other manufacturers systems do.
Get the codes read to what sensor(s) it is and replace.

I work for another car brand that also has free mapping updates that we carry out upon customers request, they also take several hours to do.
The car has to have the engine running so the unit can take the update, no exceptions...

If you cant find the exact one and still want to fix it for pennies, then you could use a remote relay off the PCB by running short 'pig tail' wires to it as a last resort.

At the head unit end, my car has three Fakra connectors. Bright yellow, black and blue.

Love mine, ML63 2007 so the proper 6.2 ltr engine. Dont care about the fuel costs or 12 MPG - It's worth it. Done 4000 miles in 3 months in it now and it still puts a grin on my face every morning when I start it up and drive it to work.
Hi, I have fitted an aftermarket unit from eBay, and Android 5.1 Quad Core unit.
Seemed ok at first, but when you have to live with it every day it's not so good. Slow to respond to inputs (volume etc) unit all the backend systems are running which takes about 2 mins from turn on.

Cruise control on so steady throttle application (happens without cruise on also), cruising at 70 mph, engine speed 2150 RPM constant with dry smooth motorway conditions.

Get it scanned for any fault codes and have them cleared. If it does it again, get it scanned again. If the same codes are back or did not clear then investigate further.
It may have been a 'glitch' and may never happen again.
Personally I would not worry until it does it more than once.
I would not use any sealant personally but as you are selling the car and need a quick fix then why not. I saw this video on Facebook the other day where the sealant was left in and has eaten away at the alloy and made it porous!
I am stuck with no access to wiring diagrams or even a multimeter, only got internet on the iPhone!
The fuse board by the glove box on a W164, fuse board F3?
The main power that feeds this board, is it a permanent live or a switched live once the something else powers up...
Hi, when we get cars in where we cannot reproduce the fault, rather than take the car for a few weeks to drive it loads, we rig up (with the customers consent of course) a dash cam.
In this situation, we would want it to have visibility of the dash clocks themselves, maybe a bit of the road to...
My clips have turned up from the USA and have done the job. I have some spare if anyone needs them.
However since needing them, I have replaced the running boards on my W164. The top plastic trim to body on these running boards use the same clip / really similar clips as the engine cover ones...
In EPC, where do you find 'Running Boards'?
The chassis I am looking under has them fitted as standard (ML63 AMG) but in EPC, I can't find them anywhere.
Under section 99 Special Internal Fittings, it lists 270 Running Boards and shows a poor quality / low res image but no part...
