Scroll down a few posts and a guy "blokhead" posts the solution to the "laser" problem. And then another posts some pictures. I only took out the first 3 screws, opened it up, pulled the circuit board out, and then used a tiny screwdriver to seal up the gaps around the metal box around the laser sensors. I also tightened up some of the tabs that hold the box to the board. It definitely had some little gaps that had opened up over time causing RF interference. The guy says if he ever fixes it again he may use some foil tape to completely seal it, I might do the same, but it appears to have fixed the laser issue when you press the gas, and an issue with my keyless remote lock. It would laser everytime I left it on and locked/unlocked the car.

How do i set the cruise control on my 1994 mercedes c220 elegance automatic


Cruise Control
Any given speed above approximately 22 mph (35 km/h) can be maintained with the cruise control by operating the lever.
-see photo

  1. Accelerate and set: Lift lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever up to accelerate.
  2. Decelerate and set:
    Depress lever briefly to set speed. Hold lever down to decelerate.
    Normally the vehicle is accelerated to the desired speed with the accelerator. Speed is set by briefly pushing
    the lever to position 1 or 2. The accelerator can be released. The speed can be increased (e.g. for passing)
    by using the accelerator. As soon as the accelerator is released, the previously set speed will be resumed automatically. If a set speed is to be increased or decreased slightly, e.g. to adapt to the traffic flow, hold lever in position 1 or 2 until the desired speed is reached, or briefly tip the control lever in the appropriate direction for increases or decreases in 0.6 mph (1 km/h) increments. When the lever is released, the newly set speed remains.
  3. Canceling
To cancel the cruise control, briefly push lever to position 3.
When you step on the brake or the vehicle speed drops below approx. 22 rnph (35 km/h), for example when driving upgrade, the cruise control will be canceled.
4. Resume
If the lever is briefly pushed to position 4 when driving at a speed exceeding approx. 22 mph (35 km/h), the vehicle resumes the speed which was set prior to the cancellation of the cruise control. The last memorized speed is canceled when the key in the steering lock is turned to position 1 or 0.
Note:
If the engine does not brake the vehicle sufficiently while driving on a downgrade, the speed you set on the cruise control may be exceeded and you may have to step on the brake pedal to slow down.
As soon as the grade eases, the cruise controlled speed will again be maintained as long as the brakes were not previously applied, or the lever may be used to resume the previously set speed if the brakes were applied.

My car makes a droning or humming sound around 2000 rpm along with vibration but it goes away as soon as I increase the speed or come to a stop.


could be the timing belt tensioner. with the timing casing removed place a socket extension bar on some metal then to your ear as it will help you locate the noise. be careful tho. failing that big end shells i would check. hope this helps

Car won't pull back speed when foot off accelerator


Very possibly a vacuum issue. Maybe a line that needs vacuum for the trans is on an inlet that effects the throttle. Not sure how old your vehicle is.

Hi,

Sounds like you need to tune your carburetor and check the spark plug.
Try checking the CDi, replace it with an aftermarket racing CDi and compare the ignition and combustion, if it still doing that problem.

Tell us afterwards to guide you more of these problems.

To calibrate the speed follow these steps.
Press stop and speed up and place the safety key in its spot.
release the stop and speed up.
Press stop again. The windows on the console (speed & time) will be all zeros.
Press speed up, the time window will increase. The belt should start to move. Increase this number to 85. This is maximum speed. Adjust the potentiometer to the correct maximum speed. The console will beep until the correct speed is adjusted (+ or - .2mph).
If the machine suddenly goes dead when in use, you may have a static electricity problem.
Check that the ground pin is present on the plug and check your outlet for a proper ground connection.

Performance issue


Did you check the ignition timing of the engine before you fire it up? Increase in temperature with increase in load is usually caused by retarted ignition timing.
