Not true. disconnect battery, turn key to run position then reconnect the battery, get in van and start. this will reset your anti-theft device

I am trying to help a 71 yr old lady sort her fuse problem out can anyone help me to find fuse boxes on merc vito 108cdi 2003...thank you


as with most german cars, there are a number of possible locations for your particular van; you may end up needing to decode the VIN to find what you are looking for. check out this pdf for your model lineup:
http://www.benzworld.org/forums/attachments/v-class/411048d1321980423-fuse-help-vito-composite-108cdi-fuse-relays.pdf
The usual locations for your van are:
below dash under steering wheel
below dash under passenger glovebox
under front seat next to battery box

If you are lucky, when you find a fuse panel, thee will be a sticker on the back of the cover you remove to expose the panel that will tell you what fuse protects what circuit. uploadserror image is too large. maximum size: 500k

My nissan interstar van wont start like battery dead and its charged fully


Battery with a dead cell can still show 12.5-13.8 volts but when any draw is put on it will drop voltage like a rock such as cutting on the headlights. They may look ok to begin with but will dim very quickly. I would start here by having the battery load tested.

Key fob will not connect with ignition on Mercedes Vito 115 2008


More likely than not, you have the famous broken solder joint(s) at the coil inside the FOB...if that is fine and all solder joints look fine , then you had best get MB, or a good Mercedes Independant garage, to check the EIS and make sure it sees the key

My merc vito 2002 turbo diesel ran out fuel after filling with 20l and trying to start 4 60secs have no sign of any firing of engine have undone small bolt on top of feel filter attempt to start noting no...


Hey, I've got an R reg vito and they're all the bloody same. They're fitted with a "self priming pump" and i've used the quotation marks because they never bloody work! I've ran out of diesel in mine a few times due to a broken guage and it's always the same, depress pedal and for 30 second intervals crank the motor and depress the accelerator halfway. After an hour, multiple stalls and a flat battery it may choose to start. If you run out on a hill, forget it. The last time I ran out before I got pissed off and fixed the fuel guage I did just that and a handy hint if you're stuck on a hill in a vito and out of fuel is to always carry a posi drive screwdriver in your van. If you can bear the taste of diesel, unscrew the rubber hose on the clear fuel line that runs into the fuel filter on the left hand side and ****. The pipe's fitted with a n/r valve so once you taste diesel, reconnect it and crank for a bit and it'll start. If you happen to be really organised, keep a can of brake and clutch cleaner spray in your van and spray into the air intake in small bursts and it'll fire up in a second. The latter mentioned product is a must to have and works ten times better than any can of easy start. Finally when you have time I'd recommend doing what I did and fitting an inline hand primer pump to the clear fuel line which i've tested and removes the need for all of the above messing around. The simple fact is, the vitos self primer is s**t and cannot be relied upon so if you're like me and like to play petrol station poker, a £3.99 ball pump is a must.

Mercedes vito 110cdi starter motor problems. only when the van


Hi as it starts with a jump start, i would rule out a starter motor problem, i am taking it that what you mean by a jump start is your using a donor battery rather than pushing the van, so possible causes are (1) battery discharging due to a light left on, or the alarm system draining the battery or something similar, (2) alternator not charging the Battery, when you turn the ignition key does the ignition light come on, does it go off when the engine starts?

P reg merc c180. red light flashes on rear view mirror when drivi


If you have a small odd shaped key on the keyring there is a socket under the steering wheel (in the plastic housing) which mine fitted. By turning the key left or right in the socket it resets the light. I found that the flashing light indicated that the alarm had been triggered at some time when I had been away from the car and had switched itself off after a time. If you have this key you could try that.

The car doesn´t start the battery is ok fuees ok


Do you have any check engine lights on? Is your anti-theft light flashing? If so, put key in igniton, turn to on (NOT START) leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES
As SOON as theft light turns off, try to start.

There is a problem with your key.
