Such a system is very limited in extent, and works using simple components. The Factory Service Manual for this vehicle will have a test protocol for the system. In addition, if the work was done at a Mercedes Benz dealership, or even a large body shop, they can readily contact technical support at MB headquarters where problems of this sort are handled on a daily basis. It takes work to diagnose problems and it may be that they simply have "guessed" thus far and have not really done the required testing to find the root cause. If there was accident damage, it could be there is a wiring issue, misalignment (sensor misalignment is a common cause) or other obvious causes. If you desire a resolution without further delay, I suggest you request an electrical component diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic from YourMechanic will get this resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
