Hi folks.
Need some advice. I have a C350cdi estate 2013. After starting and driving about 1000 metres the screen goes blank then comes back on and the 'ESP unavailable' 'ABS unavailable' flash up in amber for a split second then all is normal. Occasionaly when this happens the steering goes heavy for a second.
Vehicle had a new battery fitted when i bought the car just over a year ago which i have checked is the correct type. However, the Stop/Start has never worked.
The only other problem i'm aware of is the parking brake is a bit sticky but i understand this is a common problem.
My gut feeling is a wheel speed sensor although no code for this and surprised the fault wouldn't remain whilst driving.
Spec is C350cdi AMG Sport plus 7 speed auto Blue efficiency 2013 S204 (260 bhp)
Any help would be appreciated - love this car.
Thanks

What code reader was used?
Even intermittent faults would flag up a code and be stored
Battery charge good? Many 'glitches' are the result of low charge. Starting draws a massive current and can drain a battery to critical for a time.

Problem now solved, replaced the auxilliary battery.
Wishful thinking maybe. ??
