orange triangle blinking when driving

My car has 25 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in about your 1999 Mercedes E320. Most common cause in Mercedes of that era is the brake light switch. I would have a diagnostic run on the warning light in order to be certain of the problem.
