Cracked solder joints in MB electronics are very very common. I don't know why, probably just that everyone drives these things forever. After all, how many Toyotas or Lexus have 300,000 miles on them after 18 years?

Re-soldering has fixed many a cruise control amp, ACC pushbutton control unit, and relay!
