Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK

Open Question

1998 Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor Convertible: With fuel tank full, it appears that a orange flashing light on the fuel gage flashes. I believe this is a low fuel warning light. Why does this light come on intermittently. After shutting the car off (reseting), the light goes out but will come back on after driving for various times. The fuel gage needle appears to be accurate especially after filling the tank.

There are many parts places. We are here to help you in repair not finding parts.

You don't say if you want used or new parts. The Kompressor car is a very complicated automobile and most likely well above your expertise so please be careful if you intended to attempt this repair at home as one slight misjudgment and the turbine can be ruined for life.

I would just google for the part you need.

only a turbo "kicks in".a supercharger is a compressor that uses the speed of the engine, so the faster the engine the more pressure....use the gearbox for rapid acceleration....

SOURCE: 1999 slk 230 kompressor convertible top sticks

no the fluid doesn't need to be changed. it most likely is not seeing one of the micro-switches for the convertible top or the windows are not syncronized meaning the one touch/express mode is not working. to sync windows just open and close windows using the 1st detent on the window switch. when the window is fully closed hold switch for 3secs longer. as for the micro-switches the wiring sometimes breaks behind the headliner.

Just but an Mercedez SLK 230 Kompressor 1999 and the hard top will not go down.


First check that you have oil on the hydraulic pump that it is inside the trunk on the rear right fender the oil should be between the marks. If thats ok check when you put the ignition on if the switch that operates the roof is on, should be off, on means that something is wrong, if blinks 6 times one of the 5 or 7 switchs are not closed, check one by one. check the two that close the trunk at the middle, the cover, the trunk limit switch, the trunk switch
