Hi guys...

I'm experiencing a lot of weird things with my car since the cold weather has started. Although my battery is fairly new, I have difficulty starting up my car in extreme cold weather(I have to jump start it sometimes). Sometimes I get a ETS warning light flashing and the lights in the interior dims a little and if I push the gas pedal the lights brighten again. Anybody know whats going on? The car is a 97'E320

Chuck

Chuck, you better "chuck" your alternator.....Seriously, have the alternator checked for sustained voltage output under load. You are describing classic undervoltage symptoms..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
