problems with a 1999 W202
All problems seem to be electrical. The first is with the fuel gauge. If the tank is filled, the gauge drops to empty and the reserve light can stay on. Driving 400 kilometres the gauge does not move, but switch off the engine and restart, the gauge now read 3/4 full. Drive another 150 kilometres and the car runs out of fuel but the gauge shows that the tank is half full.
Second problem is with the fresh air / aircon fan. Even with the fan switch off, when you start the car the fan and also the aircon. will come on. Turning the switch you will get to the second fan position where the fan will not get any stronger the higher you go. I suspect that at this position she is running at maximum. Sometimes when you get in the car and start it the fan behaves itself, but more often than not, it does not.
Third problem that has only happened once due to very little rain here and that is when I put the windscreen wipers on full, it did a couple of fast sweeps before going into intermittent mode.
Do I have a computer problem?
