A lot of topics on this matter, but none that could give me a definitive answer.
Basically I picked up an E55k yesterday, and whenever I would like to use the SBC Hold feature, it comes with the SBC Hold unavailable.
From what I found, it may be a switch at the gear lever, that is...
I read in my owners manual about a hold activated by the brake pedal so if you press it twice hard it will hold like a hand brake so that you can take your foot off the brake pedal without putting it in neutral. Say when you are at traffic lights. Is this an option and does anyone have...
Yesterday, I started the car after a local journey, pulled out of a side street into crawling traffic and realised the SBC/Brake Hold function had engaged itself, something I rarely use, unless I had inadvertently done so on this occasion. The brakes were only applied lightly, bringing the car...
Was told of long delays on A16 before entering Belgium, today.
Roadworks on A16 but police redirecting traffic off A16 for vehicle/passport checks.
I'm off tomorrow to Germany, so will use the coast road via Bray Dunes to Adinkerke & hopefully avoid the jams.
The ECO system has stopped working in my 4 year old SLK (including the hold function for the brakes), before I spend a fortune on a diagnostic (Is £120 normal for this at a dealer? This is my first MB) can anyone suggest anything I can check myself?
Today my Clk 240 w209 (2004) Advantage was to have lowering springs fitted (35mm drop) but the work has been put back for a week.
I'm now thinking 'should I have up rated shockers fitted' at the same time or will the springs work ok with the original shockers.
I have already purchased the H&R...

I can't for the life of me get the hold system to work without bringing the car to a halt then quickly releasing the brake and reapplying.
Any ideas how I get it to work in one motion...slowing to a halt then the system applying itself?
I had my car connected to Star on Saturday to do the tank gallons remaining mod, which now displays in IC fine!
I went out for a drive this afternoon and for some very strange reason my car now has SBC Hold, I know for sure that this has not been available before :confused:
I saw someone in the daily mail the other day in trouble for drinking a slushie at the lights and looked up whether having the handbrake on would have prevented it being an offence.
Don't know why but I always thought having the handbrake on at lights allowed you to get away with due care...
