The gauge circuit runs through the pump fuse. Most likely the sending unit has failed inside the tank. :-(

usually if the ecu says crank code then its a faulty sensor, can be both crank and cam. as if the crank sensor goes it will not start. cam it will start but not run correctly. low compression would mean eather water in oil, water in cylinders, or blow back on compression. but with all or any of these the engine would still start but run badly.

The stepper motor linkage for the left foot well flap is broken. I recommend having the linkage and the motor replaced at the same time. the repair is quite involved, so I recommend having a qualified MB tech do the repair.

Problem lies in either the fuel or ignition system. fuel pump working? Have spark to plugs? Crank sensor working?

did you remove the sensor for the exhaust gases this should reset its self after 50 miles or so if not may have to get it looked at properly

That is not normal. When is the last time you had the transmission serviced? Also Mercedes have a problem with the plug in the transmission. Every one we service gets the new plug.

They are anywhere from 100 to 250 on Ebay but you need to know more information on what the model number is.

if you hear the starter engage but engine does not revolve with a known fully charged battery-you may have a leaking head gasket causing a hydro-locked engine.

If it fails to turn over then check on battery condition and on battery connections (do full beam headlights stay consistently bright for ten minutes). If Ok then check on wiring to and from starter motor and on condition of starter motor brushes. If turning over can you hear the fuel pump running; whirring sound when key at position prior to 'start'. If no fuel pump check on fuse for pump relay, check on relay, check on voltage at pump. If pump supplied with voltage but not running give it knock to see if you can get some kind of response from it. If completely dead replace pump and filter assembly.

Belt pulleys can make that noise. So can crank bearings, right before they sieze up.

You have to go back to the basics to find out what systems aren't working. Fuel/Fire/Air. Is it getting fuel, is it getting spark, how is the compression? Once you figure these things out then you will be heading on the right track.

Take it to a dealer. This isn't a user-replaceable unit.

2005... | Answered on Nov 29, 2014

This can be done by contact your service provider to connect his tool under steering with data connection to reset your entire setting

First check the fuse, check to see that you get a reading on at least one side. If you have nothing at the fuse, the wire from the battery to the Fuse-box is suspect. If you have a light this wire is not suspect. If you have both sides of the fuse powered, check the wires at the Fan itself for voltage~IF you have voltage the fan will need to be replaced. If you find that you don't have voltage at the FAN and the fuse is good, the wiring from the fuse to the fan is suspect. Thank You for using FixYa.com Come back if needed.
