Great board! Wish I could say the same for the 2003 E500 I bought three days ago. I'm new to Mercedes, but am familiar with the E430.
I picked up a silver, with grey 03 E500 with 79,000 miles on it. Clean carfax, etc., but there are some issues I'd love to hear from the experienced members here about
The navigation, radio, cd, etc., goes out. Stays out for hours at times, but eventually I can get it to come back on. Won't stay on though.
Do I need to buy a replacement? I thought about something aftermarket, but I like the factory look.
The "easy go" system works, but drivers door will not. Any idea what I need to replace? I'm thinking the entire door handle.
Cup holder is broken, and to make it worse, the wrong color cup holder wood piece was "rigged up" i guess. wood is wrong color, and doesn't work right either) Any ideas?
Third brake light is out. Looks like I have to buy the entire unit. I can get one on ebaymotors, but don't want one that's cheap, or sets off a light on the dash.
Front side marker light is broken, and bulb gone. It has an amber lens, but what I'm seeing on evaymotors shows clear lenses. Could I use a clear lens and buy an amber bulb?
Anyhow, great board!
