RE: Battery Disconnect

You probably need to synchronize the headrests too. Owner's manual covers both the windows and the headrests pretty well.

RE: Battery Disconnect

Here is a comprehensive list of all items that need (or may need) to be synchronized after loss of power (i.e., battery disconnect):

Synchronizing Head Restraints:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or empty), the head restraints are no
longer adjusted automatically. To resynchronize the adjustment feature, turn electronic key in steering lock to position 2, move the seat completely forward and the head restraint fully down, and hold respective buttons for approximately two seconds.

Synchronizing power windows:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or low), the windows cannot be opened or
closed by the Express feature. To resynchronize the express feature, press <close> side of power window switch to resistance point until the window is completely closed and hold for additional 2 seconds. Repeat procedure for each window. The automatic full opening and closing procedure of the windows should now be restored.

Synchronizing sliding/pop-up roof:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or low), or if the sliding/pop-up roof is blocked during closing/opening procedure, the system has to be synchronized. To do so, turn electronic key in steering lock to position 2, move and hold switch in direction (3), until the sliding/pop-up roof is completely raised at rear, and
hold for additional 1 second.

Synchronizing ESP:

If the power supply was interrupted (battery
disconnected or empty), the BAS/ESP malfunction
indicator lamp may be illuminated with the engine
running. Turn steering wheel completely to the left and then to the right. The BAS/ESP malfunction indicator lamp should go out.

Synchronizing remote control:

The remote control may have to be resynchronized, if
the vehicle cannot be locked or unlocked. To synchronize insert electronic key in steering lock.
The remote control should once again be operational.

I guys.

Yesterday I was trying to make my 300 TD '98 to work because my wife run out of diesel.

Now everything is ok, but it wasn't easy. It seems that when you made several intentions to restart the engine, there is a "immobilizer" which stops the fuel to enter in the injection pump. To avoida that you must close the car and reopen it.

My problem now is the temperature and fuel gauge, the are not going to the correct position, only 10 seconds before the engine is on. A person says to me that was the condenseters because the battery run weak or a peak of electricity. I desconnect the battery and it doesn't work at all.

Excuses for my english from Portugal.

HELP!!!![V]

The battery on my '01 E320 got low/dry, and before I took it out to service and charge, I hooked my jumper battery pack onto the underhood jumpstart points. When the battery was ready I re-installed and didn't have to reset anything. Just be careful with the positive terminal when it's disconnected. I put mine inside a heavy leather glove.

my car doens't work - no electricity

hi!
It was everything ok. although I had had a malfunction in lights system, for 1 month.

However, yesterday, I parked my car and then returned back after 5 minutes to re-start it, but as I turned the electronic key (switched on) , lights turned on and then suddenly all the electricity gone.

Now, I can not even turn the electronic key to other level, say, it is locked and doesn't allow the key to be be switched !

Any reply will be really appreciated.

Hi. I had the same issue one month ago. One of my car keys went dead from one they to the other. I was still able yo lock/unlock the car but nothing at all happend when inserting the key in the ignitionlock. I tried my other key and that one was still good. Contacted my local Mercedes store and the only solution was to order a brand new key.......

So far after disconnecting the battery all is reset except the widows. They go down but only go up after continually pressing the button. Then they go up in small increments. Any suggestions? I was attempting to reset the malfunction display after disconnecting the battery to get rid of a suspected faulty CEL. The CEL went out an I then got a MFD of Antiskid and brake control malfunction. Any ideas in ridding that?

Get the window all the way closed, then hold the switch in the closing position for several seconds. For the anti-skid malfunction, try turning the steering lock-to-lock several times.

I read the manual and couldn't figure it out. I came here and the wording is the same. Here is what confused me:

"To resynchronize the express feature, press <close> side of power window switch to resistance point..."

It should say "To resynchronize the express feature, press <close> side of power window switch to FIRST resistance point..."
