Mercedes V220 CDI (V Reg) Auto
I'm after some help if possible. I have owned the above vehicle for about six months now and have had no end of problems. My local garage are not keen to do work on Mercedes vehicles themselves so my last visits to a Merc dealership for repairs (a new cluster last time) are proving expensive and quite frankly I cant afford to take it there again.
I wonder if you can advise on a few problems I have currently.
The most recent was this weekend. IUt had been idling for about 5 minutes as i was talking to someone. there was then a bang and hiss and stem was comign out of the side of the engine. It was projevted steam, as if it were a hose. Checked teh radiator and steering fluid and all OK. Some liquid had dripped out of the bottom and was a yellow colour. Vehicle seems to be driving OK since, but I want to know if anyone has any ideas what this may be, and if it will have to be dealt with.
My other problems are again things which I'm happy to leave if safe to do so. On the dash I have three warning lights on which have been on for months now. One is SRS (airbags?), one is the air suspension (which stopped self adjusting a few weeks ago but does not affect drive too much), and thirdly EDC - electronic diesel control.
lastly, when opening the drivers door, the central locking keeps locking and unlocking (like every second) on all doors until the drivers door is closed.
I really cant afford any more repairs on this vehicle so am after as much advise as to what these problems may be as possible.
Thanks for your time,
