c230 '98 Brake Assist System (BAS) Light

Hi - new user here,

I have had a c230 since 2001 and have a problem. The BAS (brake assist system) light came on a fe weeks ago. My mechanic looked at it and explained the impact and the potential cost to have it repaired, $2500++.

I am not sure that I buy into his assessment. From what I remember, he said that the brake assist system is faulty and needs to be replaced. If that is the case, any one know the part number, so I can check for a price check? Or anyone else encounter this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

OMG, don't listen to that. Did he even check to see what code is stored? That's the first step. Most common cause of a BAS light would be a bad stop lamp switch, which cost probably about $30 and takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes to replace.

You REALLY need to look for a new mechanic. He either seems confused or he wants you to pay for his next vacation. Always get a second opinion.
