Generally if it's intermittent it means that a bulb flickered or something and threw the error code. Mine does this sometimes too, then once I restart the car it goes away. I suspect it's one of the taillights since the bulb holder on one of mine is slightly melted.
Read through the taillight thread on this site for more info.
Finally caught the little bugger----driver side rear brake light was the culprit BUT it is the holder with a burned contact.Thought MB had that fixed with my 98 model.
So, can I get a holder at any auto parts store or is it a $20 MB item?
fixed it temp with as bit of aluminum foil.
Yeah, MB performed the recall on mine too....But my "new improved" holder melted as well. MB won't do anything about it either. I fixed mine by cleaning up the contact really good and then putting a small amount of dialectical grease on it. So far so good.
The recall includes putting stickers in the owners manuals changing the type of lamps that go into the tail light assemblies.
Has anyone had that done?
