I have just purchased an 1997 Mercedes C200 and the ECU is not working. I
sent it to England to try and get it fixed, but they are taking really long
and I need it urgently. I called my local dealership and they cannot get
one, and if they did source one I would have to wait 2-3 months and I was looking at around $5000.00!
My car is a 1997 Mercedes C200 Classic, 5-Speed Manual.
If anyone has advice or knows where to get one, please tell me.
Here is the information below:
Mercedes: 018 545 11 32
Bosch: 0 261 200 614
I uploaded an image of the ECU:
ImageShack - Hosting ::
I was told that this ECU is no longer being made and I must source other
model number. I have found from my research that these three ECUs are
Other Model Numbers that would work:
018 545 44 32
018 545 43 32
A019 545 58 32
However, I also discovered that they would need to be "remapped" or "coded"
to work on the car, can my local Mercedes dealership do this? And if they
cannot, where do I go to get it done? Please help! I need an ECU asap!
I will be checking this thread/forum everyday until I find one, so just post here if you have one for sale.
I have already called two companies which people from other forums told me could help and I haven't got a reply from the companies yet.
The two companies were:
City Cycle Service Centre (Ah Tee) and Millenium Merz Service (Adi)
