Question about Mercedes-Benz 500-Class

1 Answer

After an accident, the body shop replaced the right front headlight unit with a new unit from MB. It worked for one month then it stopped. I don't think it's the unit itself. Any suggestions. Lee

Need to instructions on how to replace headlights and header panel on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am

Why do you think you would need a body shop? Was the car in an accident? I don't know what you mean by a header panel, but any normal mechanic will be able to unbolt things that are not integral to the body of the car.

05 lincoln ls was in accident, hit on drivers side, airbag deployed from drivers seat, seat belt light on, engine light on, wrench light comes on and goes into limp home mode. Was told needed to throttle...

I have a 2004 LS V8 & do all my own work

I can understand the battery failed as it was
more than 4 or 5 years old

The converters would have had to be damaged
in the accident if something got under the car
& damaged the exhaust pipes,no other reason

The Gas Pedal is called a Electronic Throttle
Control Module,I'm looking at my wiring diagrams
for a V6 &v8. I don't see that as an issue

The Throttle Body is almost always replaced at a dealer
& seldom an issue either. Reason --When you have a really
bad COP Ignition Coil it spikes your PCM & the signal
comes back on the TPS Sensor on the throttle body &
the pcm looses throttle plate % & starts to cut out
fuel injectors

Bottom line ,not many people like working on Ford Products
& the dealer will really cost you dearly & with negative results.

I have seen many codes related to coils & never more than
one bad one,while it could happen

It sounds as though 80% of your issues have nothing to do
with the accident.

We own one of the most complicated vehicles out there
It has Jaguar Technolgy as well

I don't know if any testing or diagnosing was done on your car
or if what was done invloved a body shop,then off the a dealer
or local repair shop,but I don't get a warm fuzzy fealing on anything
but the battery

As long as your wrench is light you have codes to at least look at

The ETC Failsafe on the right bottom side if dash is a BAD COIL
as I explained above. You will drive up to 22 miles in hot weather

The PCM you can see & feel under & behind the glove box
To remove it you have to remove the box on pass side of engine
compartment that covers the Cabin Filter as the 2 harness connectors
ar there down low

I doubt the PCM Failed

Go to a local shop that likes lincolns & just have them find
the one bad ignition coil.
them it will only go 6 mph in failsafe. Unusable for now

How do I take the headlight covers off my 1997 Taurus

if you are talking about the front section of the headlight assemblies they don`t as the front portion of the headlight and rear portion of the headlight are a one piece don`t say why you want to do this.if its to replace bulbs they are replaced from behind the assembly,if its because the lens is cloudy they can be cleaned(buffed) clear,if not badly damaged,at a shop that has the equipment to perform the job.

I had an accident a few months ago on the front right side, the wheel was driven back and after I got it from the shop it is not running well, I was told that the chassis is open and needs to be adjusted,...

You cannot perform any chassis repair yourself. It requires specialized equiptment and expertise. The ONLY way to repair the chassis is to take your car to a reputable certified body shop.

Fog light indicator (i dont have fog lights)

You likely have a pinched wire in your harness somewhere.
Those cars are prewired for Fogs whether you have them or not. If the wiring is pinched with another wire that carries current, it will backfeed through the system illuminating the fog indicator light.
That light does not normally have power with the key off, so knowing that it stays on with the key off, there is little other possibility other than a damaged section of wiring.
Take it back to the repair shop quickly so you can have a insurance supplement claimed.

Headlight issues in 2004 Volkswagen Jetta

The problem is almost certainly only a bad connection at the back of the headlight unit. Have the 3 pin plug and terminals a new bulb, and check the earth connection and all should be well.

2002 S60 - Low compression on cylinder #2 and cracked coils issue

coils crack over time with age and wear. it may take several hundreds of dollars to replace, but definitely necessary, and no gaurantee that its the only problem you may have. the low compression could be several different things. but you will have to decide if its worth fixing or replacing the car. you will start paying for repairs a little at a time every couple of months, or ante up and have a major service done to fix and replace everything.
