I have a 2000 s500 Mercedes Benz i try to tap into my radio for power with a aftermarket radio and loss all power air unit alarm not working fan running high

The yellow wire is for memory on the radio. You have to tap into a key on power source for the on/off button on the radio. Sounds like you may have messed up other components by tapping into a data wire. You can unhook the battery for about 30 minutes and see if they reset. If not, you most likely have to replace them. Send 12 volts to the wire wire and you can burn up many other computers.

Most manufacturers demand the water pump be changed every 3 years.

If your thermostat sticks, you can over heat. You would also need to ignore or have a failed temp buzzer. Also at extreme temps, your temp sensor can burn up. SO if you heard the buzzer, and then it quit- that did not mean you were out of the woods.

If you could still run on your scalded pistons, I would think a light bore job with new pistons would fix it.

Sounds like a small tapping in the motor but no loss of power, and shifting smooth still. What is that tap?

Could bad a lifter gone bad or dirty, start with the simple and add a bottle of to your engine oil. This free up and lifters that may have dirt in it, it the noise is still there. The most likely your going to have to have your rocker arms or lifters replaced.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

need tohave your valves ajusted. intake valves should be about 5-thousnds, and exhasut should be about 7-thousands. be in all, the slite tap you are hearing will not hurt anything. Sometimes times a little lose is good to keep from bending a valve.

Freeze slite cool but refigerator is not cool at all

Sounds like a defrost system failure. This could be the freezer fan, heater, timer. You need an OHM meter.

You can manually defrost the freezer with a hair dryer that will get it working for a couple of days. Remember there is a lot of ice behind the freezer back wall, you can only see the tip of the iceburg.
