Brake Light Switch location?

Question by stedmania posted 9 months 2 weeks ago in 2006-2011 (W164)

Hi there

im having some difficulties with my car not starting and getting an error “vehicle not in position P”. The drive selector doesn’t get out of P.   

I have researched and it sounds like a faulty brake light switch could be the problem.   

I have removed the panelling under the dash but now cannot find where the brake park light switch is located.   

All the videos and guides I can see only seem to reflect W163 layout.   

can someone assist as to the location. I’m driving a ML500 W164.   

many thanks
