Default Weird Letters in my E-240 computer screen?!

Hi everybody ,

I had just bough an E-240 2004 model and i had got a weird problem in it , which is that the computer screen show me some weird Letters Like "S" or "SE" or "N" or "NE" which I have no idea what is the deal with them and the car keeps alerting every minute , and some functions blink for a once every 5 or 6 minutes like the "SRS on Red" and it show me these messages "Display faulty visit workshop" and "

The car is good and am having to technical or mechanical issues in , but this weird thing is annoying me , so any body is having any idea about this problem and why it came up and what is the solution of it ?

Note:-
I had noticed that this problem is coming mostly when the weather out side is very hot

I had attached some pics for more information

hmm, conserning the letters SE, SW and NE i guess this has to do whit det navigation - the system is telling you in which way/direction you are driving (South East, South West and North East). This is not an errormessage, i believe. Try to switch off your navigationsystem, and i guess this messages will disappear.

The two other errormessages i don`t know.

S=south, SE=Southeast, N=North, is a compass. It is offered as an option in the E class. For the other issues you MUST go to an authorized shop or a MB dealer.
