    can you describe the malfunction

  • Joseph Prosser Feb 23, 2012

    'Malfunction problems' is a little non specific.  If you could describe the issues in more detail that should help me get to the first step in helping you solve the problems with minimal expense

    while busy driving the mulfuntion appear which say tyres, aircon,and sometimes the speedcontrol.and the radio goes out and when switch the key of and left the key out for a few seconds and start again everything is back to normal again.after a while

Just to let you know you are describing a failed ignition switch Thats why the radio goes out tire light comes on speed control. MBZ at this year 2002 has a updated version for your concern You will need the updated EIS a aftermarket or incorrect will cause the instrument cluster to fail. Your solution is a EIS (electronic ignition switch)

Andre,With multiple warnings I would first check out the electrics. The fact that everything resets after switching off and then back on strongly indicates a potential electrical issue. Check the fuses very carefully especially the one for the radio. Swap it over with a fuse of the same amp rating on another circuit. If this does not change things then look at the relay serving the air conditioning compressor. Again if there is a relay on the board the same as the air conditioner relay then swap it over temporarily to see if there is a change. Next when the engine is running then give a slight wiggle the ignition key in the ignition lock. If warnings suddenly appear it is likely to be a loose wire connection with ignition/switch assembly. These tasks are quite easy and may help diagnose the problem. Once the problem is accurately diagnosed then is should be a an decisionn to either fix it yourself or have someone fix it for you. Good luck

Hi Andre:
This indicates a problem with pneumatic air suspension. Most likely air compressor has failed.

Diagnostics Engineer: It should be checked and replaced if necessary together with it's relay.
This is usually due to a leak in the suspension system which allows the car to drop especially when left for an extended period of time. When it drops past a certain level it will store a fault & put a warning on the dash to let you know the car is too low. If it is raising up again & the warning goes away then the compressor is functioning ok. Finding a leak is best with some soapy water - this is sprayed around joints & seals & will show up a leak as the air escaping will be found by bubbles forming. A common problem is the front strut tops - if these are leaking then they can be replaced as a seperate part.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: where can I find engine oil dipstick on mercedes

These cars don't have a dipstick (really!). Using the steering wheel controls you can get to a page on the computer output (middle of speedo) that will give you an indication of oil level. Sorry I don't recall exactly which page it is, but the manual explains - I'm sure you can google it. If you do a normal journey (so the engine is up to temp) and then park on a level surface and wait a few minutes you get the true reading from this function. If you ask me it's all too clever for it's own good...

I had the same problem in me 2004 cdi e270. Check the voltage going to the battery when the car engine is on. Stedy charge of 12v should be going in to the battery, if the voltage is volitale say between 11v to 14v then it your Regulator (which is attached to the backend of the alternator). You need to change alternator and then unplug all the batteries over night and re plug them back again. The problem should go away.
