      I would say that it is required at this point to identify the numeric fault codes that are now stored for the abs which may also cause other systems to also turn the warning lights on. Example: an abs fault on most cars will also turn on a suspension control warning light if so equipped (in this case the light is for the Electronic Stability program or ESP) and definitely the traction control light, so I believe that your problem is directly related to the abs wheel speed sensors which may have become damaged during the wheel bearing repairs. Recheck your work, read fault codes. You will need a code reader that can access MB abs system.

      Check the horn buttons and horn wiring at the steering wheel - these may be corroded or out-of-position.

      Remove fuse # 37 in the engine compartment fuse panel to disable the horn. This is a 20 amp fuse.

    What could cause a thumping noise coming from the rear at the rate of acceleration?
    When the car accelerates there is a thumping noise coming from the rear of the car. It starts to thump faster as the car accelerates harder. I thought it was the flex discs but, it seems as if those have no tears. I also think it may be the bushings or half shafts ...

      Recently I got ml500 2005 model and I experienced the same described noise, but this noise noted when stopping, shifting to D from N, shifting from D to N, run over humps, so probably it is generated from one or more supporting mounts, because I changed the rear brake discs and pads, but I’m still living with this noise … I’m going to the workshop when I get a chance …

      What is the wrong fluid? If it needs to be flushed or removed - simply loosen and remove the return hose connection and drain the fluid into an oil drain pan - when cranking the engine momentarily to operate the steering pump.

      If you are referring to your steering wheel horn or your security system horn I agree. Did someone put this notion in their head or did they just come up with this on their own?
