SOURCE: Mercedes Benz C180 Fault Message Brake Assist.Visit Workshop BAS

Hi there

BAS is the Brake Assist System and if there is a malfunction it would only come into play in an Emergency stop while applying full pressure. BAS applies full braking force because people tend to lighten up their pressure on the pedal in these situations. I would suggest that the best thing to do is go to a Workshop or Service Center and have it checked out. Please remember to put a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards

SOURCE: Service Brake message

Hello, You probably have brake pads that are worn down to the sensors. You will need to take it to whomever does your repairs. It could be either the front or rear pads or both.

If you find this info to be correct, please enter a (fixya) rating
Thanks, Gator241

SOURCE: 2001 c240 battery/alternator - visit workshop light

This is normally a low voltage from the alternator condition. Hook a voltmeter to the battery and note the reading. Should be 11.6vdc to 12.2vdc. Start the car, after a minute or so it should be around 13 to 14 vdc., if not then the alternator may be bad

SOURCE: 2004 mercedes clk reads coolant visit workshop.

It could be either the left front fuse and relay box,left front sam or the engine control module. Basically it's in a safety mode right now because the engine control module is not getting the coolant temp. The early clk's had this problem when they came out with the new body style. Was a common problem for awhile.

2000 cadillac deville is overheating, replaced thermostat: water pump radiator had head gaskets fixed it's saying check coolant level and it spews coolant from the overflow tank cap when hot thoughts?


Two cooling fans controlled by three relay's . If only one fan is working ,that could be a problem .
Coolant Level Sensor Description
The coolant level sensor monitors the coolant level in the cooling system and indicates if the coolant is low. This sensor is located at the base of the radiator surge tank and is not serviceable.
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL (2)
The IPC receives a discrete input from the engine coolant level switch. The engine coolant level switch is normally closed. When the engine coolant is low, the engine coolant level switch opens. When the IPC receives an open signal from the engine coolant level switch, the IPC displays the message on the DIC.

Why does my Mini's fan stay running for 20 minutes after engine is switched off & header tank from radiator needs topping up every week?


will assume it the newer mini produced


yes 20 minutes is too long

will need to go to a workshop for inspection
possible answers for the issue

the fan .......all fixable
faulty internal thermostat ..
faulty thermostatic temp switch not switching off
of fan motor not spinning quick enough


the fan thermostatic on /off switch is set that way to cool down the motor and not warp the head or block
after stopping the engine the coolant is at is hottest for a short time
so the fan shuts off when the coolest temp of coolant is reached

header tank needing top ups

check for hose leaks at clamps or small cracks in heater hoses
the cap of the header tank may need replacing
the internal heater radiator may have a leak
(you would have wet carpet inside the car)
a welsh plug may be leaking
radiator may have a hole hole
or other coolant leak unknown

worst case
if the coolant in the header tank looks like it is sludgy
(has oil in it ) or oil dip stick has coolant or water with the oil
there is a possibility the head gasket has blown

What causes the cooling fan to operate non stop/ kicking in very often?


The temperature of the coolant (mixture)... is monitored by a thermostat... which then activates the cooling fan...

It is most likely in a ten year old car... that the cooling system has NEVER BEEN serviced... and more likely the FAN and Temperature sensor are the early warnings of a major cooling system failure.

Check your pump, hoses, fluid levels...for any obvious signs of leaks...

Invest in a pressure tester (see below) and test the integrity of your system... before buying that new anti-freeze.

Hope this helps

How long for the ac fan to start working? Ive noticed that the fan does not work when i turn the ac on, can this cause my car to overheat. I check the temp and coolant liquid both seems fine.


the ac fan starts as soon as the ac is switched on
the fan is provide cooling of the condenser before the radiator to prevent high head pressures in the ac compressor
it is the fan at the front of the car mand does not affect engine temp
there is a radiator fan between the engine and the radiator that will not start until the coolant temperature reaches a set temp at which point the ECM switches that fan on
if that fan is not working when the engine is hot , check for fan, coolant temperature sensor switch , fan relay, fuses or problem ECM

2004 sunfire cooling is always on when the car is running


The cooling fan is controlled by a temperature switch located on the radiator or on the engine. When the temperature of the coolant exceeds the switch temperature rating, the switch closes and energises a relay that switched a voltage to run the fan and it will continue to run until the coolant temperature drops back below the opening point of the switch. In your case, you may need to have the cooling fan replaced.

2005 mini cooper running hot. the fan is not coming on


hi it could be your coolant level has dropped to far for the sensor to operate the fan to work ,so top up the coolant by removing the coolant cap and topping it up and run the engine with the cap off and the heater switched to hot but with the fan switched off till it has warmed up and all the air is expelled from the system if that doesnt help you need to locate the coolant temperature sensor and replace it good luck

Emmissions light has come on?


you need to get it scanned, i assume "emissions light" is your check engine light, or the "visit emissions workshop" message, which means, go to a shop and get it checked. The coolant disappearing means you probably have a leak. Another reason to check it,
