Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

1 Answer

Every time I start my car it ''beeps'' and a minus number flashes .

Every time I start my car it ''beeps'' and a little spanner and minus number appears on the dashboard. If I drive my car and stop and start it again the number goes up by 2 e.g it's on -50 next time will be -52 .

My car is a Mercedes Elegance A 160 Y reg. The other day I tried to start it and it wouldn't start, It now starts, but I'm affraid that if I drive it I may get stuck somewhere. Do you know what the problem is?

Hi!
This problem you are experiencing is possibly your Service overdue light, reminding you each mile past shown by a - so if you are worried then a trip to your local dealer to have it done.
Good Luck!

1.9 dti opel pick up wont start


It could be an Immobilizer fault, if the spanner /car light comes on.
If you have a spare key, try it
A Flashing spanner light normally means immobiliser fault hence the non-start. The spanner light left might just be an indication that it has stored the "wrong transponder" code.
Opel will have to clear this but you might need a CIM as well that is the bit that reads the key to allow it to start.
Try the spare key if you have one

On 1.7 DTi models, a defective solenoid in the pump can cause failure of the ECU due to excessive current draw causing components to burn out. but this *should* cause other fault codes to appear.

I'm getting an audible alarm from my instrument cluster as the air bag light doesn't light up with the rest of my instrument lights when i turned the key to on the alarm is 5 beeps appox. 5 times is there...


Replace the airbag lamp in the cluster, and get the LFC ( Light Flash Code ) to figure out what the problem is with the SRS.
The 5x5 beeping is an indication that there is a SRS problem waiting and the airbag light cannot give the LFC. Page 105 in the owners manual.

Once you replace the airbag light, you will get a LFC that is a 2 digit number presented by the flashes.
Example is a LFC of 42, the airbag light would flash 4 times, pause flash 2 times pause and repeat.

Once you have the LFC, either start a new problem, or add a comment to this problem with the number for further diagnoses.

Need info on pergeot 206 instrument panel little dial at top gives milage but has a spanner as a sign why sorry couldnt find model 206 or year 1999 on yr site


Spanner means that it is due for a service, it should show for a period of time when you start the car and revert back to miles after a period of time, the length of time the spanner remain gets longer as you go more miles overdue for service. When you get it serviced the mechanic will reset the spanner/ Service interval
