Question about 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class

1 Answer

No charge on 79 300 td 3 litre diesel

No charge light, no charge from alt, also the emerge brake light used to be on with key on engine off, and another light I think was for rear suspension. I have heard that if the dash panel has a problem alt will not work. I can't find any wiring diagrams, so ----------.

Make sure the alternator light is not burnt because if it is then the alternator won't charge.

O1 Suzuki jimny not charging,changed battery and alternator,fuses checked still no joy.


welcome to USA forum the country with ZERO JIMNY !
no books on it either.
My guess is the charge lamp on, what does not charging mean.
  1. charge lamp on,?
  2. battery volts, not 13.3 to 15vdc running, idle 800?rpm?
  3. is charge lamp glowing key on, if fix that now. not running, it must glow or some ALTS will not boot up, called cold excitation current, that some NEED. fix the lamp.
  4. wiring bad. to alt. or alt casing not grounded.
  5. or car stalls.?
  6. or battery goes dead when you sleep or long day at work>?
  7. try to say what NO CHARGE MEANS? why do you say it.?
  8. on new USA cars, some the ECU runs the ALT, so, and 2001 is common here, but I cant look for you can I. (no books on JIMNY)
  9. what engine,, there are many, 658 cc K6A I3 (JB23)
    1,298 cc G13BB I4 (JB33)
    1,328 cc M13A I4 (JB43)
    1,461 cc K9K TD I4 (JB53)
  10. the engines run there own Alternators, very different.

1999 3.2l. Why are battery and brake lights on?


was not on before the new alt,? is alt new or used.?
or came on only after the new ALT?????????
my guess, is 2 failures.! (one ignored and 2nd grew)
on with engine running, guess yes.
Good question and is same answer on all cars.
1: engine rpm too low, what is yours (below 80 rpm)
2: fan belt slips. bad tension pulley (weak and old???)
3: Alt bad, or its wires bad.
4: brake level low, (@MC) or hand brake switch stuck on, or other brake failures. a plenty, scan the PCM and ABS if you have ABS.
id not drive it with the brake lamp on (Savvy?)
the battery light is really the ALT charge lamp.
it glows anytime the Charge system can not charge the battery
if you drive far like that, the engine will stall and not crank.

5: the horn fuse power the alternator, so check the horn fuse
10amp , key on, 12vdc on both sides of fuse is needed/
fyi: the meter fuse runs the charge lamp, if said lamp is dead bingo.
6: fact 2, the PCM does NOT run the Alternator on the 3.2L .
7: alternator case not grounded right.
8: battery is bad, causing alternator to drop off line
9: battery cables bad, at the 4ends or they are bad.
10: the plug on the rear of alt is bad or its wires or pins rusty.


brakes:
the brake lamp has 3 inputs ("OR" logic) master cylinder level low.
the hand brake lever and the EBCM (electronic brake control module)
a technician unplugs each to see what causes the error.
if you unplug mC wire and hand brake wire
then the EBCM is UNHAPPY, scan it.

Alt. and brake liht on dash


the alt glows, when the charge system fails.
belt feel off? or engine RPM way below 800rpm hot?
or bad, battery, wiring or alt.,

the brake lamp comes on for every key on, for self test.
and at each engine stall. this is NORMAL.
the brake lamp warning glows usually for 4 reaons.
1: hand brake stuck on, or its switch.
2: low brake fuild.
3: front or rear brakes have failed (the balance switch)
4: ABS if fitted, is having , well Fits.

Charging system voltage low


there are only 3 parts. but the causes are 25 or more.
1: belt missing slipping,
2: engine rpm below 800 RPM (lots of ways ,ask )
3: ALT had.
4: wiring to ALT bad.
5: bad battery or its connections, (wires)
6: bad fuse. see fuse link a11? on fFM page 20?
7: car is PCM alt controlled, it can be bad too. see 2 field wires on ALT and PCM on page 20? below?
8: battery temp sensor bad. making PCM think battery overheats.
the fSM covers all tests above.

pick car here, then pick charging.

It seems the sensor/switch on top of my 98 Turbo Diesel Vitara is playing up and cant find one any where to replace it. Can any one help ?


No displacement stated on the engine, wow, you make this hard.
or a challenge? like a rubicks cube with colors missing>?
JTD Marurit ( in 6 displacements)? are used all over.? seems not.

some Peugeot are rebadged JTD ! Look more careful at engine.
i googled the www, and can only find this message.
"In 1998, there became available models featuring 1.9-litre turbodiesel engines from PSA, built in Spain by Santana Motors, all of them were 4WD vehicles equipped with manual transmissions."
is your's a PSA engine? as you can see, finding out what
suzuki put in your engine bay, is not an easy task.
we are blind, only you can discover that, and keep records.
my wild guess, is 1.9 TD or 2.0 TD PSA..

we dont have diesels here stateside, 1998 to 2012 online parts shows none. (or is the zero support>? not sure ,nor care)

why not state what country you are in.? 56 engines world wide. (about 12 are diesels)
and why not ask SUZUKI for the part, they sell it?

why not buy the factory FSM ? with diesel supplement? book?
Suzuki uses non suzuki made diesels in many countries.
discover what engine it is, for sure, and actually.
and what injection system is used, names ,etc.

97 jetta tdi wont turn over. interior exterior lights work. charged battery. nothing when key is turned and clutch depressed. no clicking nothing. i found a wire above the solinoid heavy gauge red


I'm not a VW diesel expert, but you should have a switch on the clutch to prevent you from cranking the engine in gear. I would look for that switch and check for voltage on both sides with the pedal engaged.
There should be a small wire on the starter solenoid that goes to the clutch switch and then to the key.
