Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

The vehicle is a 1995 Mercedes c220 - 4 cyl gas. The a/c compressor is not coming on. The self diagnostic system run - I have performed with no fault code coming up. The fuses all are intact and show system voltage through all the fuses inthe main fuse block. My supposing is that possibly the evap temp sender has an issue and is stopping the compressor from coming on. I have also read about controller programing. And imagine that renewing the ETS is the first step in further identifying this problem or set of problems. .. Yes, the refrigerant charge was low and then charged - before it came to me. I guess that I am needing to know the relay or controller position - so that if or when the ETS does not correct this issue that I can go forward and trace the circuit better.

Low charge and 4 sensors most likely. Low pressure sensor, High pressure sensor , ac compressor cutout and 2 temp sensors. One outside by blower motor on inside for cabin temp.

Check engine light is on all time


It means your vehicle's onboard computer system has self-diagnosed some kind of problem. The "Check Engine" light, which is also called a "Malfunction Indicator Lamp" (MIL) or "Service Engine Soon" (SES) lamp, is there to signal you when a problem occurs that may require attention. This can include anything from a momentary hiccup that has has little or no noticeable affect on engine performance or driving safety to a failure of a major electronic component. There's no way to know what the light means without running a diagnostic scan on the system to determine the nature of the fault.

As a rule, a continuous Check Engine light usually signals a "hard fault" or failure that has occurred. If the light comes on and off, or only blinks momentarily, the problem may be minor or intermittent in nature.

To help identify the problem, it helps to make a mental note of the conditions that occurred when the light came on. Where you driving at a certain speed? Accelerating or slowing down? Shifting gears?

Onboard diagnostic systems are very complex and require a fair amount of expertise as well as special tools to troubleshoot. To find out what's wrong, a technician has to "get into" your system through a diagnostic connector which may be located under the dash, under the driver's seat or in the engine compartment. The diagnostic connector serves as a port of entry for accessing information and/or for putting your vehicle's computer system into a special diagnostic mode for further testing or displaying "fault codes".

Fault codes are numeric codes that are generated when a problem is detected. If a sensor circuit reads out of range or some electronic component fails to respond to a command from the computer, the computer recognizes it as a fault and records a number that corresponds to the nature of the problem. The technician must then retrieve the code and refer to specific diagnostic chart or "fault tree" that gives him the step-by-step checks he has to perform to isolate the failed component. It can be a very time-consuming process depending on the nature of the problem. Usually the process works but sometimes it doesn't. An intermittent fault can be very difficult to track down, and may require repeated attempts to repair it.

A helpful rating and an testimonial would be greatly appreciated...

97 sunfire&#65292;2-door with sunroof. The airbag stays on. How can I reset it?


The airbag system with perform a self diagnostic when engine operation is ititiated. The airbag light will come on during the self check. If the diagnostic program find no faults the light will de-illuminate. But in this situation the light remain on which means the diagnostic program has detected a fault. There is no way to re set a failure on a self diagnostic. Repair of the system is the only option in this case.

When pressing the gas the car stalls and backfires


There are to many things that can cause the problem you have. Best thing we can do is get the DTC codes to understand better why your car is doing what it's doing.
The On Board Diagnostic (OBD) was designed on vehicles equipped with electronic fuel injection so you can generally retrieve the codes yourself. No need buying a scanner or running to any parts stores to check the engine light. This system is called obd1 and applies to most vehicles made before 1995 for domestics.

For GM domestic vehicles made before 1995, the diagnostic connector is located under the dash panel by the driver side. To get the check engine codes to flash in your dash panel, use a jumper wire or a paper clip and connect terminals A and B of the diagnostic connector. Turn your ignition key on with engine off and the codes should start to blink. All codes should start with code 12 which is one long flash followed by 2 short flashes. This code 12 means the diagnostic system is normal and will repeat itself continuously if there are no trouble codes. Otherwise, code 12 will flash 3 times before flashing the fault codes.

Counting the codes being flashed is almost quickest way to understand the Vehical's Engine Management and performance and most of the codes can be erased or cleared by disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 1 minute and reconnect. 
Just make sure to check your service manual in case you have electronic equipment such as radio or clock that needs reprogramming in which battery disconnection is not recommended. Finally after performing repairs on the culprit code, always go for a road test to confirm if the problem is fixed.

Good luck and here is a link with the OBD codes, let me know if you need more help. http://chevythunder.com/199295_lt1_trouble_codes.htm#Code 28

99 expedition air suspension compressor runs every couple minutes


It is normal for some cycling of the compressor as the ride heights change and the compressor vents and fills air springs. Info:

Air Compressor
The air compressor:
  • Is not interchangeable with the rear air suspension (RAS) air compressor.
  • Consists of the compressor and vent solenoid; neither are replaceable as individual items.
  • Is a single cylinder electric motor driven unit that provides pressurized air as required.
  • Is powered by a solid state relay, which is controlled by the air suspension control module.
  • Passes pressurized air through the compressor air drier that contains silica gel (a drying agent). Moisture is then removed from the compressor air drier when vented air passes out of the system during vent operation.
  • The drier may be replaced separately.
  • The drier has dual ports and is not interchangeable with the RAS drier.
The vent solenoid:
  • Allows air to escape from the system during venting actions.
  • Is part of the air compressor cylinder head.
  • Shares a common electrical connector with the air compressor motor.
  • Is enclosed in the cylinder head casting, which forms an integral valve housing that allows the valve tip to enter the pressurized side of the system.
  • Has an O-ring seal that prevents air leakage past the valve tip.
  • Opens when the air suspension control module determines lowering is required.
  • Provides an escape route for pressurized air when system pressures exceed safe operating levels.
  • Has a 1792 kPa (260 psi) internal relief valve.
  • Is installed with the air compressor as a unit.
Compressor Relay
A solid state relay is used in the air suspension system for compressor control. The relay incorporates a custom power metal oxide semi-conductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) and ceramic hybrid circuitry. The relay switches high current loads in response to low power signals and is controlled by the logic of the air suspension control module.
The compressor solid state relay is energized by the air suspension control module to have high current flow from the battery to the compressor motor.
Control Module
NOTE: The 4WAS control module is also used for the RAS system. The internal processor recognizes external circuitry to determine if it is installed in a 4WAS or a RAS system.
NOTE: The air suspension control module is calibrated with information from the air suspension height sensors. A new or swapped air suspension control module requires the ride height adjustment calibration process to be performed.
A microcontroller-based electronic air suspension control module controls the air compressor motor (through a solid state relay) and all system solenoids. The air suspension control module also provides power to front and rear height sensors. The air suspension control module controls vehicle height adjustments by monitoring the two height sensors, vehicle speed, a steering sensor, acceleration input, the door ajar signal, transfer case signals and the brake pedal position (BPP) switch. The air suspension control module also conducts all fail-safe and diagnostic strategies and contains self-test and communication software for testing the vehicle and related components.
The air suspension control module is interchangeable between the RAS and 4WAS system.
The air suspension control module monitors and controls the system through a 32-pin two-way connector. The air suspension control module is keyed so that it cannot be plugged into an incorrect harness. There are two sides of the harness connection to the air suspension control module. Each is uniquely colored and keyed to prevent reversing the connections.

Pressure Relief Valve
The pressure relief valve (PRV) protects the rear air suspension components by venting the system to a specific pressure in the case of a system malfunction. The system will decrease the pressure to an acceptable level to maintain vehicle height. In the normal operation mode with normal system pressure, the PRV is constantly closed and does not have any effect on the system performance or function. The PRV is replaceable without any air lines.
  1. If the concern remains after the inspection, use New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester connected to the data link connector (DLC) to retrieve continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and to execute On-Demand Self-Test diagnostics for the air suspension control module.
    • If the On-Demand Self-Test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
    • If DTCs are retrieved, go to Air Suspension Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in this section.
    • If the air suspension control module cannot be accessed by NGS Tester, go to Pinpoint Test A.
Self-Test
Verify that the following conditions are met before running the On-Demand Self-Test.
  • All doors, liftgate, and liftgate glass must be closed.
  • The transmission is in PARK.
  • The BPP switch is not pressed during the test and the parking brake is not set.
  • The accelerator pedal is not pressed during the test.
  • The vehicle is not in 4L mode.
  1. Fulfill the pre-conditions.
  1. Install a battery charger for the On-Demand Self-Test to prevent battery drain.
  1. Run the air suspension On-Demand Self-Test.
  1. Record all listed DTCs.
  1. Retrieve stored DTCs.
  1. Troubleshoot any On-Demand Self-Test DTCs first.
  1. Retest and clear DTCs after repairs.
