On my W140 the SARS light went on with the occasional pot hole. The
dealer said it had something to do with the seat belt system but could
not repair or locate the problem. Now that Ive fixed my instrument
cluster, Im curious weather Ill notice the problem any more. Hmmm....
The ASR is an infamous problem with the W140. I have it, It comes and
goes. Usually in the winter. Ive heard horror stories about replacing
the wiring harness, or trtaction contrrol computer. One guy said he
just cleaned the contacts where it connects to the car, wherever that
is. One guy even documented how he went through computer codes and
found the culperite to be the MAF sensor under the hood. Here is his
Rumour has it that the W140 manuual is out there in the wild for us
plebes to own. Surprising what you find on ebay nowadays...
But honestly I want to sell the car before anything else goes wrong.
Biggest mistake buying this car. $$$$$$$$$....
Anybody wants it lemmeknow .....
