My drive belt on 06 CLS 500 came off while i was driving and my check battery light came on. I opended the hood to find my drive belt off and it wasn't popped or cracked. Would this be a bad pulley that caused this and if so how much would it cost to replace this?

Brake light, battery light, service engine soon light on. white smoke from under the hood. area near belts loud and I smelled burning rubber. put car in park the engine shut off. What's the problem?


If your battery light came on, and you smelled burning rubber, it could be that your belt that drives the alternator, which charges your battery is broken or flipped upside down. Do not drive with the battery light on or else you will stop dead when the battery does not have enough charge in it to keep the car running. If you decide to drive and not follow my advice, then be sure all extra electrical power is off eg. radio, fan, DVD, lights etc.

Mercedes CLS 500 Why is my door ajar light is on but door is closed


sounds like the door switch is not working find out which door is causing this, Close all the doors and One at a time open a door find the button on the door jamb and press it in, See if the door ajar light goes out, If it does, The door is not pushing the button in enough to turn it off. you can attach something to the door where the button hits or extend the button and make it hit the door.

Battery light on - steering hard


My gut reaction is you have a slipping or a missing belt. Belts drive both the alternator (no power = battery light on) and hard to steer (belt drives power steering pump).

Open the hood and check it out.

Sounds like your belt broke or came off. If the power steering quit working too. The belt runs power steering, alternator, A/C unless it is different belt. Have you looked under the hood at all? If it turns out that it isn't that. Then check all of the connections on the battery and alternator. Check fuses for charging system.

I hope this helps.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.


You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....
