Question about Cars & Trucks

I have a 2005 mercedes c230 kompressor and i want to know if there is any way to check the alternator without a voltmeter.

The lights on the dash keep flickering off and on and now the car won't stay running for long.

Not really
you can check the voltage out put with a multimeter across the battery terminals ( reads 12 volts at idle and 14.5 with 2,000 rpms but that is not sufficient to test properly
best take it to an accredited auto electrician that can remove a wire and instal an amp meter and voltmeter to get a correct reading

Yes, i have a c230 mercedes kompressor.


not necessarily
when diesels knock and diesel at low rpms it generally indicates a dribbling or leaking injector/s
have an accredited diesel repair shop check it out
If it has some miles on it and the injectors have never been done then the injectors are a fair bet

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.
