SOURCE: where is the battery location for E350 2008

most cars have the battery under the bonnet, some modern cars may have a large plastic cover covering them, some mercedes have the battery located in the boot (under carpet etc) and some are located underneath the rear seat base.

SOURCE: The wiper did not work

Hello
Sorry but we have no electrical wiring diagrams for this car, the diagrams are contained in a factory service manual, the factory service manual is available from a site called www.alldata.com it is a subscription site but has all technical detail including wiring diagrams and troubleshooting for each component and system of the car, why this Mechanic doesn't have an open shop subscription to this essential web site is kind of amazing to me, how does he or she work on modern cars without a technical library at hand for each vehicle?? My opinion they are not somewhere I'd take my car, that goes double for the complex systems of a Mercedes..

Antenna


If you have window tinting on the back glass, it will cause poor reception. If there is no tint, check the wiring near the top of the back glass for looseness or corrosion.

Radio wiring code for 1987 mercedes benz 300. With aftermarket radio the windows switch ligths blinks and have no instrument ligths.


Hi, the aftermarket stereo does not use the illumination wire. You must tape that wire off (purple/gray). That wire is either connected to the wrong place or is touching chassis ground and causing your instrument lights to dim.
Connect the stereo's red wire to the car's black/yellow wire; and connect the stereo's yellow wire to the car's red/white wire.

Poor radio reception


Is the antenna secure in back of radio? Antenna on vehicle OK? If antenna OK I might think radio tuner is just bad. Need new radio.

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.

FM/AM reception problem


It should- that splitter is generally used for factory telephone reception and also there is an antenna located in the rear window glass. It will work for radio reception but it will interfer with your phone if you have a phone installed. just make sure you have a good antenna ground. Try removing the grond and sanding the metal so that there is no paint or oxidation that causes higher resistance. This generally affects a.m. reception.

98 BMW M3 radio has poor or no reception. CD changer and head controls work fine. The car is new to me and I understand that there is an amp or antenna booster that may be the problem.


the usual cause of this is a defective antenna or antenna ground, if it is a power antenna verify a good ground, if ok replace the antenna, also check the coax connector to the back of the radio.
