Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz C55 Amg

Open Question

Hi I have a Ssanyong 2005 Rexton 2.7d. Every morning it wont start and it takes about a minute for the the engine to turn over, but will start straight away with a tow, we have taken it into several garages thinking that the glow plugs were the problem, but this is not the case. Does anyone have any ideas on what it may be. Many thanks

SOURCE: Glow plugs

no this will not improve the performance of your diesel, the glow plugs are used to ignite the fuel at initial start up and then they turn off.

SOURCE: hi, i have a Mercedes

Hello rextabell. If you are not currently doing this, it helps to turn the key, wait for coil light [glow plug] to turn off, but then wait another 2-3 seconds and then start it up.

That said, if warming up the coil does not seem to make a difference, suspect the battery. I recommend that you get your vehicle battery tested and also test the car's charging system.

When a diesel engine has a well charged battery of adequate amperage it generally does not behave badly. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

SOURCE: ssangyong rexton engine problems

was told from the dealer that it would take around 8 to 12 weeks as there was a back log of parts coming from korea,So went to mercedes to order the part and they said that they were nothing to do with ssyangyong. so went to my local breakers yard and got a starter ring gear from a old mercedes 2.0ltr petrol auto engine and with a small amount of modifacation and three clamps and a eletric drill gun, lay the sourced ring gear on top of your old ring gear match up the large blank spaces,just make sure you sit the ring gear the right way round i.e the way it came off the car as you will see the mating hole dont totaly line up and one is out using your starter ring gear as a template drill out the hole that is out refit the replace ment ring gear to your car rebuild the box.
have done this three times to diffrent rexons now,and to date the cars have had no problems and run great . Ok not the shortes posts but it did not take 8 to 12 weeks to read or write.
part from the breakers yard £15, to drill the part 10 mins , to strip and rebuild the car including going to the yard one 10hrs total cost well thats up to who does the job for you but it not that hard a job to do.

Hi, my ssanyong Rexton, the battery is fine but the engine does not startup, tried many jump starters still cannot start.. What is the solution?

Does the starter spin the motor? IF not, you can bypass the starter circuit by directly connecting a jumper from your battery (positive terminal) to the smaller of the three starter terminals. It will be located on the solenoid. First disconnect the coil pack so the car won't start. Next connect the jumper to the starter first, then the battery, flip the jumper switch, You should hear a loud click and the starter should spin the motor. If the starter spins the motor immediately flip the switch back to "open", disconnect the jumper as your problem lies elsewhere. If starter doesn't spin, the starter/solenoid is the problem. If it does spin the motor, you may have a bad wire, fuse, ignition switch, terminal connection etc. If you are uncomfortable with this solution, take it to a technician. Any of them should be able to diagnose the problem.

My rexton 2005 sometimes won't start. but if u lock it up and go bk which could be between 10 mins and 3 starts up without a problem and it's random on it times. any idea please

Does it not turn over or it turns over but wont start?
If it will not turn over I would check the ignition switch for loose connection. If it turns over but wont start check the fuel pump relay.

My rexton 2005 wount star when its cold changed glow plug relay stil the same . and no glow plug light on the dash bord thanks

Two part answer, firstly the glow plug light. The glow plug light on a Ssangyong will only illuminate if the ambient temperature is low enough for the glow plugs to require heating. I did not believe it when I first heard this but sure enough, on the first frosty morning I had the truck, the glow plug light came on for a few seconds. Don't worry about it, the temperature needs to be really cold before it will come on.
Secondly the no-start issue, I had a similar problem with my Ssangyong Rexton. Unfortunately, it is the injector pump, the filter gets clogged with micro-particles of crud. Take it to a diesel pump specialist (as a Ssangyong dealer won't know what to do in my experience and they will charge $000's to fix) and get them to remove and clean the injector pump.

Where is the oils filter located on a Diesel Sangyong Texton 2005 Merc DXi270

The oil filter for the diesel Rexton is behind the engine block on the passengers side. If you remove the plastic engine cover and stand next to the passengers mirror, you will see the casing next to the firewall.

Key fob wont re set on my ssan yan rexton

I recently changed the battery on my key fob for my ssanyong rexton. I then did the following for the key fob to make it work. 1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold both buttons on key fob until red light on fob stays on. Then let go of both buttons. Then pressed the alarm button then the panic button, somthing like that. To be fair the button sequence after the red light came on is a bit vague. The alarm was blaring so i was happy when it just stopped.

I have a ssangyong rexton and it wont start it just has an orange light with checked on it what could it be

There's a number of possible reasons.
You don't mention if the engine turns over in the attempt, and you don't say which light is on.
A SsangYong service person can plug in a diagnostic tool to see what error codes are present.
