My Mercedes Benz Vito-L 110 CDI 2000 Model was recently scanned by star diagnostics and found eight (8) faults, namely the following:

AGN
1. P2013 Output Speed Implausible
2. P201D Gaer 3 Implausible
3. P201E Gear 4 Implausible
4. P2028 Double error of same priority faulty

CDI
5. P1481Glow Plug failure
6. P1470 Charge pressure control
7. P0703 Brake signal through CAN
8. P0115 Coolant temperature sensor B60

Can anybody help me on what to do with this? the autoshop which scanned it does'nt have any idea on the parts to replace and repair...

Thank you. Will appreciate comments on this...

Hi ya, was this scanned using star or obd2 as a couple of those are not genuine merc codes. I am supprised they don't know what they all mean and would be tempted to suggest you either find a merc indie close by or at least get it scanned on a star if it wasn't.
All the codes can be found if you do a search on here or google and the glow plug one can be ignored unless you live somewhere where the temp gets well below freezing point.
No 6 is one of the turbo pressure regs or a hose off
No7 either the brake light switch failure or a bulb blown or a wiring issue
No8 is the temp sensor, does the temp gauge work?? and what does it show when warm
No 5 ignore unless you want a whole world of aggro
P2013- Output speed monitoring. Caused by a defective output gear or output speed sensor, and hydraulic or mechanical failure.
My suggestion would be change the gearbox and torque convertor as the box faults are indicate of gearbox failure. I take it that the van does not drive
at all ??

Thank you for the very informative comment... the van is working perfectly sir Martin. its just that the gear does not engage in about 1-2 mins after starting but once engaged, works fine...although every after 100kms ride the automatic transmission sign lights on (exclamation sign) which reads in the manual that the a/t transmission fluid heats up and needs a little resting of about 5-10 mins before starting again...

by the way it was scanned using the star diagnostics... we are just worried that it might breakdown while we're driving it...

Hi ya, i think there is a fair chance that it will break down while you are driving it as the above faults are indicative of total drive failure with the gearbox. The question is do you replace the gearbox with a second hand unit or get yours reconditioned by a specialist, i would find a second hand one as they are widely available as the same box was common fitment on a lot of vehicles

Good day sir Martin... we have not changed anything and the unit is all stock... this is the first time it went "haywire"... nevertheless we would be seeking professional help from an authorized mercedes benz shop here... perhaps if the professional mechanic would advise us to replace the gear box and we could'nt find any nearby, we'll seek your professional help and assistance in procuring the needed gearbox... thank you sir... and kudos to you....
