The contact owns a 2001 Mercedes ML320. While driving at any speed, the vehicle would suddenly stop accelerating; the failure was intermittent. The contact had to shut the vehicle off and when it was restarted, it would perform as normal. The contact called the manufacturer who stated that the vehicle was not included in recall 01V061000 (electrical system: Wiring). The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 20,000 and the current mileage was approximately 166,000. The VIN was unavailable.

: the contact stated the vehicle's remote locks would not work. When this happened, the car would not start. After waiting a few minutes, the remote worked and the car started. The dealership determined the vehicle needed a new battery and an ABS switch. This did not fix the problem. The dealership then determined the aftermarket alarm system needed to be removed. The contact had this removed and the problem was still present. The dealer has now determined the problem is with the computer. There is an NHTSA recall, # 01V061000, regarding the electrical system; wiring. The vehicle has the same problems as indicated in the recall; however it is not included in the recall due to the VIN.
