Question about Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Check the vacumn pipes first,then start at the begining and remove the shroud around steering wheel and check for a feed to the switch ,your problem with the dealer is that its too old and they dont want to know as their grease monkeys think that because they work on mercs they are special when in actual fact the opposite is true only one knows anything and the rest are young lads their to change the oil .Most dealers are like this in fact especialy merc ones ,with some jumped up receptionist in his blue coat with a merc symbol on it trying to tell the customer that some unskilled person had made an illegal entry on the OBDII and caused the immobilisor to cut in shutting everything off without knowing i was standing behind him.I have forgotton more than this jump suited idiot will ever know .Right anyway check for power to the switch then go from their ,the power runs to relay but iam not sure where this is but under the bonnet i suspect and this relay is connected via the brake switch and throttle to shut it off if you brake or accelerate ,Well reading your post again the receptionist reckons that the wheels are wrong ?? excuse me while i go for a good laugh and ring a few other mechanics to share the joke .Well nearly lost my thirty minutes to answer a question their but greasy **** and sliperery simon have both had a good laugh but its nothing they both havent heard before about receptionists and simon reckons that all ford receptionists all look alike and are clones ,tall skinny with glasses and self opinionated .While **** reckons that the ford rejects are taken on by peugeot dealers .Anyway none of us have a proper idea what could be wrong exactly other than check for power to the switch first then work from their and try to get a haynes manual with the wiring diagrams ,answering questions on here is great for learning from other mechanics who answer questions to hide from the missus and one thing that often plays up is the speedo sensor on the passenger side drive on top of the diff housing ,evidently they have three wires on some of them so the speedo still works but the cruise doesnt as its not picking up the speed ,something packs up with the coil windings ,but before we get technical check for power to the switch first .heard about the latest mercs ?? the bonnet is sealed and can only be opened with the merc diagnostic equipment ,so even the mot has to be done via the dealer as how can you check the chassis number which is the first thing that gets checked here in spain ,Let me at one and i will find a way to by-pass this device and fit a cable pull .
