SERVICE BRAKES

6/24/2016 - SUNNYVALE, CA
MY BRAKE LIGHTS ARE DEFECTIVE; THEY HAVE BEEN REPAIRED SEVERAL TIMES BUT AFTER A FEW MONTHS, THEY STOP WORKING. I HAVE THIS CAR SINCE 2006 AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS WAS A RECALL ISSUE. BUT WHEN I WENT TO AUTOBAHN MOTORS IN BELMONT, CA, THEY REFUSED TO REPAIR THEM. I WAS TOLD BY ANOTHER MB DEALER THAT THE RECALL WAS FINISHED AND BY ANOTHER THAT THEY HAD BEEN REPAIRED AT SOME POINT (?); I UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT THE BRAKE LIGHTS THEMSELVES BUT SOME MECHANISM THAT WAS FAULTY AND THAT HAS TO BE REPLACED. I CANNOT AFFORD TO HAVE THEM REPAIRED EVERY 3 OR 4 MONTHS AND FEEL MB SHOULD DO IT SINCE IT WAS A RECALL AND THE LIGHTING MECHANISM SHOULD STAY FIXED.

WHILE DRIVING IT, THE CAR WILL ACT LIKE I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES AND THE BAS/ESP LIGHT WILL COME ON. I AM NOT HITTING THE BRAKES WHEN THIS HAPPENS, I AM JUST DRIVING ALONG. INITIALLY, THESE EVENTS HAPPENED AT LOW SPEEDS, MORE RECENTLY IT HAPPENED AT 50MPH IN THE RAIN. THERE SEEMS TO BE NO CONNECTION TO SPEED, ACCELERATION, TURNING, OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN RANDOM FAULTS. DEALER READ AN ESP CODE C1120-004, 016 ESP YAW SENSOR PLAUSIBILITY OCCURRED 1 TIME AND ERASED CODE. THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE CONDITION IN A SHORT TEST DRIVE. NEVERTHELESS, IT HAPPENED AGAIN AT FREEWAY SPEED ON THE WAY HOME, AND AGAIN THE FOLLOWING DAY AT SLOW SPEED.
