Electrical problems with mercedes vito 109 cdi 05 plate
just wanderd if someone could give some advice, i have 109 cdi vito which has started giving me troubles, i was driving along the other day and whinning noise started under the bonnet, and the lights on the van started going mad, the headlights came on etc... i managed to drive for another mile and stopped the van, i took the key out of the egnition and the engine kept running. i managed to stop engine, and tryed to turn over again it started but it was going mad with noise and lights i re took key out and engine stopped. but it started to try and turn the engine over without key in and nailed the battery flat... To cut along story short i got towed back home and had a local friend/mechanic have a look and it hhad burnt the starter motor out.. i changed the starter motor and put new battery on as the last battery wasnt much cop..
we tryed to start van and there is no response with key all the dash lights etc come on but when turn the key nothing happens.. my friend /mechanic also try'd running cables off starter motor just to see if it would fire of the battery, it turns over but dosnt fire up...
sorry for the long thread but thought it would be best explaining the whole situation, any help would be greatly appreciated
