Finally! MB Germany approved replacing the drive unit. This comes after the car has been in the shop for 9 weeks. We are on our 3rd loaner as the don't like anyone person to have a loaner for more than a month. The technician still got the error code after replacing the charger(AC/DC inverter). Hoping to get the car back this week.

After replacing the drive unit, the car went into limp home mode for the dealer. After running a number diagnostic, and further guidance from Germany, they were able to reset everything, and went through a few days of drive/charge cycles.

We got the car tonight! Our service rep stated that over $20k of work was performed. My wife is happy to have her car back, and I'm happy with a functioning car. It took MB 10weeks and 2 days to fix the car.

Thanks Jeff. I think I'm going to take a precautionary approach. I have my juicebox set to charge the car at 40a, I will be turning that down to 30-32amps.

Woody,

Sounds good, particularly if you have all night to recharge. I should be so lucky to have a home charger. Good news so far is places to park and none of them charge at higher than 6.6KwH and if exit time is set, the car throttles down charging rate. Must mean something.

A couple of times, when sitting in car but powered up for awhile, I have gotten the message when I have tried to abrupty shift to D and move. After shutting down, pausing and restarting, the message goes away. I think the software likes to send this message when it is surprised or confused. I have not had any issues when driving like others have.

I am not going to have the dealer take the look unless it happens a third time.
