Question about 2006 Mercedes-Benz Viano 2.2
Mercedes Viano 2.2 CDI Ambiente, 2006, 40.000Km: cold engine, suspension compressor works fine, one can raise/lower rear suspension. After riding for about 5 Km, compressor starts working on and off (one second on -- one second off). At that time, if you try to raise rear suspension, compressor works intermittently (one second on -- one second off) with no result. If you wait 30 minutes, it will work fine once again. No apparent leaks, since the suspension stays leveled, even after a week parked in my garage. Can it be the suspension relay? What is the cause? Took it to a Mercedes dealer and no fault codes appear. They could not solve the problem.

TYPICALLY this could be because the air bags are leaking and caused your compressor to overwork itself to death. The airbags are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees and above 94 degrees. Can you believe that!?!? Dry rot starts forming on the inside fold of the bag making it very difficult to detect with the soapy water test. Anyways.. i went through all these problems and several hundred dollars before I finally decided to convert to a passive coil spring system. I got it from Strutmasters.com with a lifetime warranty. http://www.strutmasters.com/mercedes-s-500-suspension-s/112.htm I have been riding on them for about 8 months now and am very pleased so far! I actually now PREFER the coil spring ride to the air ride and was surprised at just how comfortable the ride was. Hopefully you won't have to go through as much money and heartache as I did before I went for a more permanent solution. By the way, my shop only charged me an hour per wheel to install the kit so it was pretty cheap on labor too!!!!

you need to have your car scanned for codes. in the mean time take a flat screwdriver and insert it in the slot on the shifter console and release the shift lock. this should allow you to manually shift the vehicle. Your owners manual should tell you about this feature.

CHECK THE FUSES FIRST. IF THEY ARE ALL INTACT, THEM PERHAPS THE COMPRESSOR RESPONSIBLE FOR LIFTING THE CAR, HAS FAILED. THE VEHICLE LOWERED AT NIGHT BECAUSE OF AN AIR LEAK SOMEWHERE IN THE SUSPENSION. SOMETIMES THESE REPAIRS CAN BE COSTLY, SO SHOP AROUND AND GET AN ESTIMATE IN WRITING BEFORE THE JOB IS STARTED. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. BEST OF LUCK. FEEL FREE TO KEEP ME POSTED.

I had this problem with my E280 CDI (2007)
I coincidentally charged the battery and it now works. This may be nothing to do with it but the MB service dept did msay that some functions fail before others if the battery is flat.
