Welcome! I've got a 1991 190e 2.3, that I am experiencing heat issues. What I have noticed is Heat is hot no matter what temp dial setting, air comes out side vents and defroster independent of push button selection other than defrost only. floor vents do not work , so I purchased the vacuum actuator for the legroom. I even put on the AC and switched to the center vent selection and heat continued to come out side vents, and AC out center vents.
Could you please give me some guidance here. I was told the the whole dash would have to come out to work on. How difficult is it to troubleshoot and pull the dash?
Thanks in advance!
Bill

I recently took delivery of a new R Class and am very pleased so far. One issue I hope you might be able to help with is I would like to disable the warning tone that accompanies the opening and closing of the automatic closing rear hatch. My 2005 E Class wagon had the same feature but without the annoying warning tone.

If you could provide a simple fix it would be greatly appreciated.

well I have seen many strange things with these cars. sometimes certain control modules will cause issues. without seeing what codes come up, I cant really say if the EIS is at fault. its a high possibility though.

Thanks Streetglower, hope you can help.

I've had my C320 for several years now. While I love how the car drives, its been plagued by all sorts of reliabiity gremlins and multiple visits to the M-B repair shop.

The battery of my C320 drained completely this past week after being parked for a full week with no driving. I had to charge up the old battery to drive the car to a friend's garage to install a new battery. We noticed that after the battery was re-charged, the car defaulted into some sort of "protection" mode (or perhaps it was more reliability gremlins).

However, after the new battery installation, the car persisted in its default mode:
- the car trunk was still not operative - we could only open it manually by inserting the key
- the car's remote would only unlock the doors if pointed directly into the sensor embedded in the driver's side door (the remote still could not open or unlock the trunk)
- the signal lights (blinkers) and emergency flasher were not working
- the windshield wipers and fluid were not working
- the fuel display was incorrect
- the instrument panel displayed error messages for ESP, SRS and a generic display which stated the "faulty display" (or something like that).
- the car's transmission or engine appeared to react differently (lower power)

I was able to reset the ESP as per the MB manual. But since my mechanic friend was unable to reset any of the other errors/modes/alarm, I took my car to the MB dealership. I had hoped to save some money by changing the battery myself. But MB is now asking for at least Cdn$163 just to have a computer technician "inspect" the car. Other charges will be pending.

Do you have any ideas on how to rectify this? I think this could be some sort of simple "reset" procedure. I believe the car is built in with a "protection" mode in case thieves try to steal the car by disconnecting the battery.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well my mechanic replaced the distribution on my 2.0 190e 1983 102.961 engine and for three days we try to start it (new distribution gears, tensioner and chain, new cap and rotor, new spark plugs Bosch super 4s, new rpm sensor). It just crancks and overflood the engine. What's really weird id that cylinder 4 does not wet out the spark plugs!!! (1,2,3 cylinders spark plugs get overflooded after crancking). On other occassions there are signs that there is not fuel to the injectors, that's really weird!!! I've checked all the electrical connections, they are in place. Where do we have to search further?

There has been a big question lingering about the w208.

Problem: Passenger forward/back control.
When the back control is pressed the chair moves forward.
All other seat adjustment controls functions properly.
