Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK

1 Answer

1999 slk 230 convertible top stuck open, windows come up and down but not the rear small windows. red light flashes on switch. Brought to a mercedes repair shop $300.00 later he told me to come pick up the car it was fixed. It worked for abount 3 weeks and is doing the same thing over again. stuck down both door windows go up and down if you move the switch twice. just holding the switch nothing hppens. seems to me it needs to be reset somewhere. unconnected the battery for 12 hours did not help. someone must know what's going on. the repair shop tells me they must hook up the computer to it. if that's the case I will have to bring it back right?

There is no reset. Chassis control module will be reset unplugging battery cable for five minutes.Ensure you do not need stereo anti theft code if you unplug the battery.

Hooking up the main computer is an easy operation, and is done usin an OBD-II Code Reader.
Different thing is testing chassis control module. That must be done at the garage.

There may also be a relay controlling the roof top and other function. Go back to the garage that charged $300, complain and have the job done in the proper way, testing everything, and replacing Relay or Chassis control module.

1999 mercedes benz slk hard top some times wont open and some time gets stuck down


Most likely the relay, located beside the motor is faulty. The contacts get sticky. The relay is about 30.00. Take the plastic cover off the motor and you will see the relay. Its a standard type so most decent shops will have them.

1999 slk 230 kompressor convertible top sticks halfway down, hydralic fluid looks brown is it possible fluid needs to be changed?


no the fluid doesn't need to be changed. it most likely is not seeing one of the micro-switches for the convertible top or the windows are not syncronized meaning the one touch/express mode is not working. to sync windows just open and close windows using the 1st detent on the window switch. when the window is fully closed hold switch for 3secs longer. as for the micro-switches the wiring sometimes breaks behind the headliner.

Electric windows are fine the roof gets half way


If the top is half way down that means that the trunk is open and should be touching the trunk switch to continue the process. The switch must be bad and it is inside the rear right fender close the the stop light

Just but an Mercedez SLK 230 Kompressor 1999 and the hard top will not go down.


First check that you have oil on the hydraulic pump that it is inside the trunk on the rear right fender the oil should be between the marks. If thats ok check when you put the ignition on if the switch that operates the roof is on, should be off, on means that something is wrong, if blinks 6 times one of the 5 or 7 switchs are not closed, check one by one. check the two that close the trunk at the middle, the cover, the trunk limit switch, the trunk switch
