Besides using a scanner to reset the immobiliser ,I would have a load test done on the battery as lights are a false indicator of the battery condition. The starter draws almost all of the cranking capacity of a battery and faulty cells while supplying low current to lights will not turn a starter motor .

Testimonial: "The battery is a good one. What i think has happened is that the alarm has gone off on the car while i have been away and made the battery flat. So would it be a garage job to reset the immobiliser,or maybe the RAC can do on a call out."

SOURCE: method of charging a 2004 Mercedes E320 battery

It is always safer to charge the battery out of circuit, Removal of one cable will insure you can safely charge without hurting electronics on board. Generally if your battery is already sufficiently charged it acts like a capacitor in the circuit and will prevent damage, but many battery chargers do not always put out a pure dc voltage and this can damage electonics.

SOURCE: Sensonic gearbox

Hi had same problem last Friday you can put a fuse in (30 amp) for gearbox and it will start when you turn key but you will not be able to select a gear I'm 100% sure it's the sensonic activator box you can pick one up for about £150-200 second hand.

Battery seems flat with a constant clicking noise inside the car after the ignition is off


If you have a multi-meter check the battery voltage at the terminals of the battery 12 v dc or better indicate that the battery is nearly fully charged.
no meter no problem. Turn on the head lights and look into the light and if the light is dim and flickers the battery is either weak or needs a charge. If the car will not start and you are able remove the battery and take it to Auto Parts store of choice. Have them do a full diagnostics. They may need it for a while to recharge the battery before checking. If battery is bad replace. If not charge battery and take car to favorite garage. Remember not to depress the gas pedal after battery disconnect. If you do the engine electronics will have to relearn idle. Some times the engine will continually stall during the relearn process. Better to leave the pedal alone during battery replacement.

If the car starts take it to a Auto Parts store and have them check the battery and charging system.

I expect that a CD is stuck in the radio or a light switch was left on
  • Dome
  • Fog Light
  • Head Light
  • Brake Light (bad switch)
  • Flashers
  • Cooling fan thermostat (bad thermostat)
What has happened is that the battery has run down and as the battery sits for a few seconds voltage comes up and light goes on. With light on battery voltage goes back down and relay clicks. Of course this will discharge the battery.

Battery drain overnight on a mercedes e320 2003


Unseen things can sometimes brain your battery. A trunk light that doesn't go off when the trunk is closed. Open the trunk and touch the bulb quickly, it should not be hot yet. If it is it's stuck on. The same goes for the glove compartment light.

There could be a problem with the alternator or even a battery that just won't hold a charge as opposed to an actual power drain. Fully charge the battery and then disconnect it for the night. Next morning reconnect it. If the charge is holding it will start just fine. If it doesn't then your battery is suspect.

In my 03 mercedes e320 wagon the sunroof opens only half way when auto open is used. Is this normal?


No. Push the open switch until glass is fully open....continue to hold switch for 5 seconds to allow motor to memorize open position...ditto closing.

This also applies to your side windows. Any time battery disconnected or voltage drops below 10.5 volts all convenience memories need resetting like this.

Hold window switch down fully for 5 seconds after glass has gone fully down. .....release switch

Repeat for other windows. Switch must be in second detent position when doing this.

NEVER boost charge this vehicles battery in the car unless GROUND connector disconnected from battery...serious electrical damage can occur if this is not done.

Ac reset for e320


Your Climate control unit may have to be reset. The reset works as follows: With the key in the ignition and in posistion 2 push both the defrost button and the recirc button (at the same time) for five seconds or untill the led lights in those buttons begin to flash. Wait for 30 seconds or untill the led's stop flashing. Switch off the ignition. Check the evaporator temp sensor and pressure sensor for correct functionality.
