Since the powers that be changed the website software, our once powerful search no longer works. Here is how to do a search that works. Say you want to search on adjusting the soft close pump. Go to Google search and enter: "W140 soft close pump adjust site:benzworld.org" Hit search, and you...
According to Starfinder, fuse 23 in the front fuse box directly feeds the cruise control stalk its power. That stalk simply switches 12v from the fuse and feeds it to various EGAS pins depending on which direction it's pushed. Everything else is controlled by the EGAS module in the coffin box.
Ok, here we go:
Latest version: 1405457132
Middle version: 1405457232
Earliest version: 1405451532
The two earlier versions supercede to the latest. And yes, 7132 is later than 7232. However both say to use up old stock first, which means there won't be significant differences between them.
From what I've seen elsewhere, cruise is the first thing to not work if mismatched EGAS modules are used in cars. Maybe a safety thing?
There are a bunch of all versions on eBay. Some are priced ridiculously high, but you can get one for well under $100. EGAS modules aren't high failure items unless bad throttle body wiring takes them out, and then they don't work at all.
Cruise control not working might be simply the brake light switch, despite no brake light problems. Just replaced in a new to me 1999 S320 and cruise started working after switch was replaced. Had similar issue in my 1995 S320, but speedo also stopped working at the same time, which was caused by left front speed sensor.
The brake light switch is located beneath the instrument panel near the brake pedal. I generally don't recommend throwing parts at a problem, but for the $15 cost of a part that is commonly fails, it is worth a try imo.
Well, so here it is, my first (self inflicted) car problem.
Last week I parked the car and put a new car cover on it (garage is dusty). Two things weren't proper; interior light was on, and the driver's door wasn't fully shut. Both were not spotted due to the car cover. It was then locked from...
I tried looking in the forum buyt I did not see anything related.
On a 1999 S420, per theb vehicle emission control diagram, the lines color coded TR, TR/BL/ & TR/BL are all cracked . The 2 lines go from the switching air valve & map sensor to the back of the engine (via under the the manifold)...
I just replaced my wiper blades. I got the drivers side fairly easy but passenger side was not intuitive to this mechanical engineer. After viewing the following video I was done in 5 minutes. Once you know the trick it is simple!!
I searched the BW archives and saw others had quite the...

An ambitious project is about to get underway: The creation of a (unique?) 140 shooting brake.
I have collected 140’s for many years and enjoy them immensely. Many of you already know that.
Several years ago, I purchased a forum member’s damaged S600 coupe, with this idea in mind. I also...
