    Thank you. You have confirmed what I have suspected. My problem now is how to get to the switch control? There is a woodgrain cover in the center console but I do not want to damage this when removing it. Is there a special trick to do this job?

A faulty blower motor resistor is more than likely the culprit. Follow blower wires back from blower motor to nearest connection which is normally the resistor pack. Replace resistor.

This may be an easy one. Since the top speed works, it is not the motor. But the way lower speeds are achieved, is by the insertion of resistors in series with the motor. These resistors get hot, so are inserted in a resistor pack that is located in the main air path in order to achieve cooling. But they still burn out from overheating. Follow the wiring to the motor, and you should find the resistor pack. If you check it with an ohmmeter, you will find an open circuit on the lower speed connections.
If not, then is it not the resistor pack, and the next suspect would be the switch or climate controller.

Heater fan slowed right down until u could just slightly feel cold air , now nothing


See if you have any fan on high speed, If yes, you might have a heater motor resistor issue. Other wise, possible a bad motor, or burnt connections in the wiring.

Why does my 1997 mecedes benz e420 run hot when I turn on the air conditioner


Couple of reasons. You may need to have the Radiator backflushed to remove sediment. You also have an Electric cooling fan which may be malfunctioning. They (fans) often have more than 1 speed and high speed may be broken so it can not keep up with extreme heat.

Some fans use more than 1 relay to switch the fans and the second stage relay may be bad.

Overall, the A/C coil is placed in front of the Radiator and depends on airflow to function. This makes the air available to the Radiator much hotter so the Radiator is having a hard time cooling the engine. The Electric radiator fans kick up the airflow to help both systems out.

A dirty radiator, old antifreeze, etc. can affect performance.

I hope my solution is helpful. Radiator shops can service most Brands.

My heat and air controls have no power,my radiator fan stays on


The radiator cooling fan will stay on all the time if there are certain circuit faults in your engine control system. Your computer will do this when certain sensors are not working. I would recommend scanning your onboard computer sytem. The fault codes will probably lead you directly to the cause. The heater/A/C control problem may be related, but then again, it might be a completely seperate failure. Scanning your computer system will help to determine this.

Please note that most generic OBD code readers CANNOT perform the functions that you need to do here.

Timing problm


engine timing could be off.for the mercedes benz inline 6 cylinder ignition timing 7 - 11 degrees before top top dead center with idle set speed 650- 700 rpm. make sure engine tuned up before adjusting ignition timing.replace spark plugs and wires,replace distributor cap and rotor.change fuel filter and air filter and clean fuel injectors.if engine still stall out have fuel pressure checked should be 77 - 80 psi. if your car have the EZL CONTROL UNIT ADJUSTS TIMING AUTOMATICALLY NO ADJUSTMENT IS POSSIBLE.

Heater fan only works on one speed


if the mercedes heater fan works like most cars there is a resister module that would need to be replaced.
