Hi All,
I hope you can help. I have been having a intermittent fault with my W204 Mercedes C220 which is getting worse since a service.
Whats happening is when driving all of a sudden the car reports that traction control, ABS and run flat indicator are all inoperable. The car then goes into limp mode and is very slow. Once you cut the engine and restart the fault goes and everything is back to normal.
The issue was happening once a week but since taking it to Mercedes for a service its now happening constantly. I reported the issues to Mercedes when it went in and they said they have cleared the fault but just monitor it. Well its worse now than it ever was!
Would anyone happen to know what is causing this?

You could have a faulty wheel speed sensor.
Best course of action is to visit an MB indy who will use Star to diagnose the fault.

Where are you located so someone may be able to suggest the best place to take it?
