Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

2 Answers

I own a 1995 mercedes SL500 and recently started having trouble with the left front door window. While stopped in a construction zone, I rolled both windows down. After leaving the construction area, I rolled the windows back up and on my next stop the left front window did not roll down automatically before getting out of the vehicle. The window would not operate at all. I check the fuse and found it to be blown and upon replacing it got the window to operate again. Everything seems to work fine except now the top does not want to release from the header. The rear of the top releases and the storage lid goes up, but the top will not release from the header. Is the header release mechanisms controlled by electrical or by hydralics? Any suggestions or solutions?

    This DID NOT help at all, perhaps I can give you additional information ie. the top switch is displaying a constant red same as the roll bar indicator. the windows are very clean so that is not a problem as indicated in another solution brief. I believe that the door locks Are not functioning properly due to the drivers doors lock position appears different than the passengers door lock. HOW do i free or reset the driver door lock, at times I have to slam the door in order to secure or completely close it.
    Thank you

The window position is monitered by the softop control module. It sounds like the glass is very dirty and drawing too much amperage during window operation. The soft top is electro hydraulic. The roll bar is operated normally with hydraulics but it is mechanically released in an emergency situation. 1st make sure your windows are clean and the express(one touch operation) is working-the soft top will not function properly if the windows are not synchronized. Next be sure your roll bar works-hold swith in up position to lock roll bar rams in if they have been deployed. next put your top all the way up. untill windows roll up and try it with the engine running and trans in nuetral- if it still does not work mechanically secre rear of top with tool provided in your tool kit the owner's manual will tell you how to do this. good luck

I have a 2000 Mercedes SL500. Cluster is flashing 'start error' and I have a P1570 code. Engine cranks but won't start. Starter has an abbreviated spin time too


code p1570 refers to ignition switch control module/ECM-attempted theft/data bus/not compatible ===causes --wiring--connections--trouble codes stored in other system--ignition switch control module---ECM
If this is a recent problem I would suggest that the ignition switch module be checked/replaced.

Does my 09/'94 MBnz SL500 have Electronic Stability Program?


you car is a 1995.
try this may help you.
Reinitialize the system. Close all doors. Start the engine and apply the brake. Turn steering to full left lock and hold for two seconds, turn to right lock for 2 seconds, return to center. Repeat that procedure a couple of times. Move car forward and/or backward at least 30 feet. If there is no reset DTC and no stored or registered DTC, the MIL should go out.

I can't figure out how to open the gas door on a 1995 Sl500 Mercedez. Any idea


I believe the door is hinged about 1/3 of the way back. If you press on the door toward the front of the car it should swing open. Make sure your doors are not locked because it also locks the fuel door.

Dont forget to accept this answer so I can get credit. Thank you

hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections

you could try resetting the system also as this may help
