I have had 3 w124s. The problem is probably in your instrument cluster itself.

Press the menu option on the steering wheel till you get to the temperature. press the up or down key until you get to see 'Run Flat: Active'. Then press the reset key (the key near the steering wheel to reset counter) that should do the job.

Try disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes to reset everything . Or pull the fuse for the radio which will do the same thing.

Noise from interior blower motor? If in engine compartment, go to drive belt. Shiny or cracked, replace. Hand spin the free spinning wheels for the belt to see if any are hard to turn. (Be feeling for roughness). If none, change belt. Take picture or make drawing of how belt is routed before removing.

I am not familiar with the model. Replacing pairs or sets has always been best practice even though the kerb side suspension tends to suffer a great deal more wear and tear and a greater likelihood of damage.

I imagine there is a device to monitor the suspension height that is either faulty or maladjusted. As it is a late model Mercedes I expect it is a fully computerised car and it is probable a clever fellow with a laptop and the right software would be needed to reset the default values after a repair and possibly even tell the system it has been repaired...

The issue is probably due to damaged contacts on the membrane keypad or damaged tact switches within the fob. If you're comfortable doing so, open the fob to gain access to the switches or contacts. If it's a membrane style button then carefully clean the contacts on the circuit board with something like isopropyl alcohol or electrical parts cleaner. If using electrical parts cleaner, be careful not to get it on the plastic as it will likely soften, warp, and / or discolor the plastic. You're better off to spray on a cotton swab and clean the board with the swab.

If your fob uses tact switches, then you may opt to remove the switch from the board which will disable the panic feature. Or, if you have given up hope on the second fob, pull the switch from it and install that one on the otherwise working fob.

Inspect Battery Performance: An old battery can cause variety of electrical problems, including one that won't turn over.

Hence, the most important thing to do is to check the charge and age of the current Mercedes-Benz batteries. Usually, a good battery can last over a decade. However, even the best batteries should be replaced every 6-7 years to avoid any hassle.

Low charge is a major headache for many car owners. If you hear just a few clicks before it stops, then you can easily resolve the issue by just trickle charging your battery with a 12-volt battery charge.

Remove the starter motor and check if there is a circular black plastic bung behind it, if there is remove the bung drill a hole through it approximately 10mm alternatively if doesn’t have the bung you can drill a hole in the O/S of the gearbox bell housing (meant to be drilled to 11.9mm but 10mm is fine) the reason for the disengagement is over pressure in the bell housing bizarrely causing the clutch to disengage.

Based on the other problem you describe sounds like a TCM fault, there was a recall on the TCM (if your truck has had it the 2 plugs on the TCM will be facing towards the front of the truck, if it hasn’t there would be 1 plug facing towards the front and 1 facing towards the back), if your truck has had the recall it would be worth booking into a dealer and try to push for parts warranty as the TCM selects the gears and operates the clutch.

Also on looking back at your question, after replacing the clutch the vehicle does require a teach in?
In a worse case scenario you’ll have to fork out for a TCM
