Hi All. I have a B170 petrol that while idling the other day , a power steering failure warning came on. I switched the engine off and when tried starting it there was nothing happening. No lights came on when turning the key. Almost as if the battery failed. waited 10 mins , tried again and all was ok. Same thing happened 10 days later while driving (luckily slowly).Tried switching off and on but no luck. Now had no power steering at all. 10 mins later started and all ok.
The 'recommended repair shop' is the wrong forum for your question.
The forum index is grouped according to chassis number
, scroll down until you come to the chassis that also includes your B170 and year
Once there, make sure to check the stickies on top on how to search the forum archive, some have links to a free manual, and so forth.
Thread copied to W245 B-Class. I think this is the correct forum for your car, but you didn't include a year, so....
Also, please click 'User CP' on the top right, and complete your profile with car mod and location. Daimler Benz makes same chassis but different spec cars for different countries, so to get the correct advice on a international forum like benzworld, location is important.
