Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK

Open Question

1998 Mercedes Kompressor SLK230 fuel light flashes. I believe this light located on the dashboard fuel gage is the low fuel light. The fuel tank is full but the light comes on intermittently. After I shut the car off, the light extinguishes when restarting but comes back on intermittently.

SOURCE: unable to open hard top

another suggestion is that you need to have the code re-entered for the hardtop. I just had mine repaired due to a busted hydrolic hose, and the mechanic had a hard time getting it to work properly and ended up having to re-enter the codes.

SOURCE: can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof

It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.

Is the fuel sensor on a 1998 voyager located in the fuel pump or a separate part in the fuel tank?

the "sensor" is actually just a long arm with a "floaty? on the end and gauges where in the tank the top of the fuel is located therefore giving you a read out on your dash. the sensor your talking about sounds like the low level readout sensor.this is located elsewhere and is simply asensor that reads the information of of the fuel pump and vocalizes low fuel warning. if you knowingly have fuel in your vehicle then your sensor may be shorting or or your dash gause has a short.

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership.
Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

Check engine light comes on as gas level reached 1/4 tank which causes low fuel light to flash in my 98 MB SLK230...any idea as to the cause besides bad gas cap?

Have you had the fault codes read? If not, why not take the car to an autoparts store and have them retrieve any codes stored in the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It could be an emission related problem, but getting the codes should narrow the cause down. The check engine light indicates the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Hope this helped and best wishes.
