    Star has just let me know I have a defective gearbox ecu. Where is it located in the car? Does the replacement just plug in or is any additional work such as reprogramming needed?
    Thanks in advance for your help

    What year is your ML?

    If its a 163 chassis I would ignore the code unless you have any symptoms. It always come up.

    Also could be full of oil, stained carpet below park brake pedal is a give away.

    If you have those warning lights on there must be codes, gearbox ecu has nothing to do with it, there is a earth point under the passenger headlamp give that a good clean/wire brush as this can throw abs/esp warnings.
