The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

1998 C200 elegance auto, will not crank the engine over just makes clunk.


Could be a defective battery, bad solenoid, or even bad ignition switch. When I was fixing cars, I always replaced the solenoid when I replaced the starter, but your mechanic might not have.

C200 Car shut off whilst I was driving. It has some power but won't crank over. Replaced the crankshaft position sensor and the car still won't crank over. Auto electrician said he was unable to scan


try to bypass the starter motor see the diagram attached.
If there are not function, test the ignition coil+PCM+BCM, etc any part can be faulty. 0161719d-dff5-4726-a652-08d0f17e7066.jpg see the diagram, get another information from another scanner repair shop.

99 ranger won't crank, periodically, has anti theft.


I looked at your security system, it is starter motor disable and fuel injectors. You can usually get the starter crank, but, if it is the security system, it still won't start because of fuel injectors. I don't know any way to bypass security system. You can check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any?

I have a c200 cdi mb from 2006 (w203 model). in cold mornings (0-2 C) don't want to start. everything works, lights are on, dash is on but engine don't start. i have replaced the battery yeste


Its possible the glow plugs when its warm the diesel is warm and starts more easily when its cold the diesle needs warming more so the glow plugs work harder in the winter only way i know how to test them is to take 1 out at a time turn the pre ignition on so the glow plug light comes on and the plug should glow red if not buy the 4 and replace the lot you could also check the wireing going to the plugs hope this helps ivan

Hi
It sounds to me like it could be a glow plug fault !
The glow plugs heat the diesel before it combusts. An easy way to diagnose this is check your exhaust after cranking on a cold morning if you have thick white smoke then you've probably got a glow plug down on 1 of your cylinders or maybe more
Hope this helps Nick
