    Before attempting to start W124 after leaving it in the garage for more than 5 years. I believe I should throw away the old petrol and put New 5 litres in. I am not an expert mechanic.

    ml270 cdi 2002 all fault lights and a/c turn on when not running

    Hi guys, my entire array of fault code lights and a/c will just sporadically all turn on when the car isnt running which obviously drains my battery. Ive removed the a/c relay (still have a/c, go figure) so im thinking it may be an ignition fault instead. Any ideas? Cheers
