i don't drive my mercedes, btw it's a 01 C320.. honestly, it sits in the back yard and i think it'd be better if i DID drive it, because it's broke more sitting there for no reason than it did whenever i drove it.. i can't stand this car and i'm willing to burn the thing if i could get away with insurance fraud... but.. the new problem.. so i go to start the car because i'm about to wash it for someone wanting to buy it, and of course the battery is dead, so after deciding it's the battery because mercedes seem to have the oddest "no power/batter dead" symptoms of any car i've ever had, i change the battery... and of course, another problem.. NOTHING WORKS!!! go through the manual and for some reason these geniuses can't figure out how to get things automatically working again after replacing the battery.. but hey, atleast my radio kept it's presets!!
so i reset the ESP, seats, sunroof, etc, then i get a screen on the OBC saying "visit workshop,display faulty"(pic)
... figures because that's all this car has ever done: flash about how i need to visit the workshop... i look in the manual AGAIN and the only things related to display faults are level 2 codes, and according to the book (which is very vauge as to what the problem might actually be) it should be able to be cleared like the ESP fault was cleared.. and the book only shows display faults with a engine picture below the words, and a electric lightning bolt looking thing, but nothing anywhere close to what mine is showing...
what's going on, and can i fix it??
also, if it is the gauge cluster itself, will the cluster from a C240 work in mine?
sorry for the ranting, and if this car was more reliable, then i'd love it, but just breaking from sitting there and not being driven is completely ridiculous IMO.. i can see why people love them, but i can COMPLETELY understand my people hate them also.. i'm honestly happier with my 93 honda, my 91 honda, and my 94 ford ranger than i am with this car.. i'd rather have manual windows than windows and a sunroof that needs reset because the battery dies..
