Question about Mercedes-Benz C230

1 Answer

Today I slightly hit the driver door and it did not close all the way. When I returned, the light said the driver was opened. I opened and closed the door again and then the sign went off. I tried to lock the doors with the alarm and it did not go on. I noticed all the other doors were locked except this one. I think tried to manually lock the door and it will not allow me to do it. I know these cars are very sensitive but will it eventually run it's course and allow me to lock it again?

It might. I would take the car to a body shop and have them adjust the door so it closes properly simply as a safety issue.

Driver door closed but door alarm and lock keep going off?


Sounds like the door latch is not closing all the way, Try spraying some WD40 into the latch in the door where it hits the striker post. Hold the door handle up and bump the door shut and open while holding the handle up on the out side several times, This should loosen the latch up and the door should close and latch. The more you spray and work the door the better it should get. If not the latching mechanisim may need replaced. I hope I have help you sovle the alarm problem.

96ChryslerCirrus: 'door' warning vs odometer miles, Dome light stays on.


In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Door ajar light is on but all doors are closed? Havent checked anything aside from shutting all the doors. Its a 2003 vw jetta gl 2.0l 4cyl. Not sure why the door open light in the driver panel stays on


It appears that one of the door operated switches is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the door open light coming on It could mean one of the the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in, especially the driver's which gets the most use and see if the light goes out. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact.

Volvo xc90 rear hatch door closed and won't open


Hold the hatch hard closed into its frame whilst pulling on the release handle. The mechanism on most cars consists a grab/release on the door and a simple metal hop at the bottom of the frame. Over time the hoop can become loose and move slightly inwards each time the door is shut. The door seal rubbers push back on the door surround putting a lot of tension against the grab/release mechanism preventing it from releasing. By pressing on the door and compressing the rubber surround you will take the pressure off the release mechanism and allow it to open when you pull on the handle. Once the door hatch is open, loosen the mounting bolts to the metal hoop and move it out about 10mm. Tighten the mounting bolts. Shut the door gently as a trial close and check for security of fit. If very slack, ease the hoop inwards a couple of millimetres. When happy, tighten the mounting bolts securely. draw around the hoop mount with indelible ink so if it moves in future you have early visual warning and can remount it easily

Window returns to high position, preventing door closing properly


I have a 02 Carrera and had the problem of the window remaining too high and preventing closing. i took the car to the dealer and they did something with the door handle mechanism, like unscrewing it and putting it back in place, which fixed the problem, no charge i think. i also had a bad starter switch and light switch on the front panel. when these were changed, my car now starts well and all lights work in the instrument cluster, which was a problem before.

Door open display light is flashing when doors are closed


Check your buttons, levers, that are pushed in when door is closed, at your door posts. Use your thumb or finger and watch interior light go on & off as you push them in. If light flickers when in all the way, you found the bad switch. If they work o.k., check and see if maybe your door striker where door latch locks onto, needs adjusted in slightly to keep door tighter. Usually you can tell that if the door doesn't line up good when closed, with other door or rest of body. It will be sticking out slightly further.

Rear door light is on (SUZUKI VITARA)


The light button to the door is not pushed in enough to turn off. Tape it up or just may need a little WD 40, from just sticking.
