If the brake switch fails then the brakes still function but driver aids are disengaged (the aids rely on the brake switch) so a specially modified brake switch (starting with a ~£10 stock item) could be used to defeat all the driver aids at the flick of a switch
wow the tyres dont half smoke when the ESP is off!
Are you sure? I thought the brake switch fault caused BAS, ESP/ASR and ABS to turn off?That wouldn't work as the traction and ESP are active all the time.
lol i realised it used to have one! i have since have removed the s500 badge tooIt's a wolf in sheep's clothing at times.
However, the complex electronics allow it to be a fantastic car to drive in a relaxed state. Precisely what it was designed to be. An uber-saloon with performance to match when needed.
Imagine just how much faster it would be if you put an AMG badge on the bootlid
You can drift an S500
How do i turn off all the driving aids on the S500 W220 model?.. or can i only turn the esp off
