Question about Mercedes-Benz E320

1 Answer

1994 MB E320 Power antenna slightly corroded believed to have caused too much resistance and burned out the motor (cannot hear motor trying to work upon turning the radio on/off like it should). How can you remove the antenna, or possibly manually put it in the closed position for the sake of going through a carwash. I really dont need an antenna.

Just push it down or take a 13 mm. wrench and pull the mast out of the motoer and cut the plastic strip off the mast and reinstall it but first I would check the fuse for the motor.

My 2003 suburban rear blower not working replaced blow it works jumped out check resister I have 12 v going to the resister but ony 1.7 volts to blower replaced resister worked for a week then stoped...

If your original blower burned up, or if the original resistor failed, it is likely that some of the wires leading to the resistor and blower BURNED slightly in the process, and will need to be replaced all the way back to where they connect to the fuse block. (The wires may have been pinched or otherwise damaged somewhere, so they no longer carry the amount of current required, causing the resistor to fail due to a low-voltage over-current condition.) Sadly a failed resistor can also burn the motor out. Check the windings of the motor (via the connector) using an ohmmeter to see if it is still good.

Antena not working

I am ussuming this has an electic antenna that goes up when the radio is turned on. It is the wire going to the antenna or the motor has just burned out. You can get a replacement motor or a replacement power antenna at most auto parts places. If you are looking for the original then try a junk yard and call around. It is also possible that the antenna wire came unplugged from the back of the radio. It is usually one of these three things. Unpugged wire, motor burned out or break in the wire somewhere.

Which fuse is the cigaret lighter fuse in a 2003 e320. the cigaret lighter is not working

Engine compartment (left side), fuse #1 and #6. In MB cigar lighter only works when key is on.

I think you have a W211 if it's a sedan. W210 only goes thru 2002.

Also check the lighter filament. It may just be burned out.

The automatic antenna does not rise when the radio

I disagree with Duane. What you need to do is turn on the ignition and power up the radio. If you hear the motor trying to work, you can try giving gentle assistance to the antenna as it may need cleaning/greasing. Turn the radio back off. You can have someone help you or you can hit ON and quickly step out and gently try to assist the antenna up. If it goes up, it probably needs to be cleaned and greased. This happened on my 300E before.

If you hear NOTHING from the antenna motor, you may need to check the cable that connects to the motor. It might be loose. If you can verify that power is reaching the motor and you are getting no result, then the motor may be burned out. But check all of the alternatives first as replacing the motor itself is much more expensive than the cables and such.

Intermitent fan problem with 1997 Mercedes E320

HI, disconnect the wiring at the blower motor, connect a positive and negative directly from the battery, if the blower works everytime you connect direct power, the problem is somewhere else.

My E320 AC blower doesn't work

The blower motor and blower motor resistor need to be checked and replaced if one is good and the other bad it is stil a good idea to replace both at the same time, the resistor controls the power to the blower motor. it will be one or the other but replace both .

My power antenna is stuck in the upright position. It prevents me from going through the car wash and is overall a bad look for the vehicle. I would like to know how to either put it down manually and...

i forgot to mention... no I dont believe i hear anything. the one noise that i hear occasionally is a very short "bshhhh" roughly < or = 1second. I bought the car from someone who took wonderful care of it however i dont believe the antenna was used a lot. It was slightly corroded or whatever which certainly could have caused it to draw too much power to the motor resulting in the motor burning out.

I would almost rather find out how to just take the whole thing out and deal without an antenna unless i find something reasonable on ebay.

Belt routing diagram for a 2005 E320 mercedes benz

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. As long as it is original there is no amplifier other than the head unit itself. The only tricky part is getting the antenna to work with the new head unit. Take a test light and find which wire is hot all the time. That will be your circuit 30 wire(radio memmory). Next turn key to position 2 and find your wire( one is for the antenna and the other is for your radio operation) and isolate those 2 wires,. Find your ground wire and those are your basic connections. There is a fader switch in your center console wood. the head unit sends its power ther and it is dispursed to the appropiate speakers(it is also a common problrm when you have no sound. Try to pop the switch up carefully with a flat blade screwdriver. If not pop up the shifter trim ring and pull up on the console wood. You may have to remove the ashtray. It is a fairly simple install hopefully my advice has been helpful.
