My S class is in for repair at the moment after it started running really rough and an amber engine light. Called in the AA as I was about 200 miles from home and they diagnosed a camshaft sensor error plus about 6 related errors. They have relayed it to a local repairer approved by the warranty company so waiting for the outcome.

One tip I have learned is that if you have a warranty don't break down at the weekend as they only seem to work Monday to Friday. Originally asked for it to be taken to my nearest main dealer and then had to redirect it once I had managed to contact the warranty company.

Hopefully a simple repair that gets done quickly.

Latest on this is that it actually has an oil leak which has got in to the loom creating a number of problems. Still under investigation for a final resolution.

Seems odd that oil would cause electrical problems.
