My car is a 1.8 - E 190 , 1993 model. The car is in a good condiction and done only 93,000 miles. It never gave me any problems up to now and for that reason I love it. The problem developed last week is that, it is difficult to start and when it starts sometimes it does not rev up and the engine cuts off. The ignition side is OK with new spark plugs, rotor arm and adistributer head. The hi-tension leads seems OK. I sort advise from people with Merc knowledge. There suggestion is perhaps it is the malfunctioning of the fuel pump relay. I have difficulty in locating this part. Can anyone please advice me how to overcome this problem and the location of the fuel pump relay. I am a professional Mecanical Engineer with reasonable knowledge in car mechanics.

Wht mercedes wont start, tailghts stay on?


The brake light switch is tied to the ignition system.

Check your brake light switch. very common problem.
Follow the brake pedal up until you see it. small electrical part with connection to it.

Make sure to get a "real" Mercedes replacement part, as the aftermarket ones are even flakier than the dealer ones.
They are not that expensive and it's pretty easy to replace yourself.
Hope this helps!

When starting it says start error and wont start


You have a d.a.s. prob;em( driver assist system). For some reason there is a communication between your transponder(smart key) and your vehicle control modules. It is a very complicated system and cannot be properly diagnosed without a s.d.s.machine.(star diagnostic system). I would first try another key and see if the problem persists. If the car starts fine with another key then you know the problem is a defective key. Either way you will have to order a new key from the dealer and have it programmed with a s.d.s. machine when it arrives. If the car starts I would take it and have it scanned for codes.

My key for my 2002 mercedes will unlock the doors but will not work in the ignition. Please help


which model do you have? if its a C or an E then it sounds like your drive authorisation system has failed(DAS) basically the ignition switch. Got to be MB dealer or a specialised MB tech with the right computer. Not cheap either, sorry if its bad news
