New owner of a 98 C180 & I need HELP!!!
Hi everyone my names pete
I'm a new owner of a 1998C180 classic have had it for 2 years and love it but a few things have been goin wrong and I need help or this car is gonna have to go and I don't wanna do that lol I bought it off an old couple with only 132000km
Issue 1 the car drives fine all day until it sporadically it will disengage drive whilst driving I had to stop in the middle of the roundabout with the hazards on and keep moving the selector through all the gears turning the car off and on until it re engages drive :-/ very annoying I had it checked by a benz dealer and service department and an auto gearbox specialist and did a full service and it still does this weird thing every now and then ... ( insert pulling hair out ) !!!
Issue 2 car decides to not start and after cursing and swearing it decides to start how friggin annoying again so thinking the starter is going I got it re conditioned with new parts brushes etc and put it in starts fine but now the car is backfiring and not idling properly and won't go any faster then 30-40 km down hill :-/ I was told it was because the battery was disconnected that the computer needs to be reset is this tru and how do I reset the computer and would I need to do that every time I disconnect the battery ??? And I have no idea how to put the code in the radio cassette I have have the code but I have no instructions to keying in the code on the radio cassette player it now only shows this symbol
_ _ _ on the display !!!
SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP I LOVE MY MERC BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT SO MUCH FOR MERC DEALERS AND SERVICE MANAGERS
IF ANYONE COULD GUIDE ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION OR LET ME KNOW WHAT I CAN DO WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED
THANKS GUYS ;-)
