Credit goes to bigchrisrogers for this post


I think I've sorted my problem with the central locking. Every time I locked the doors they would lock/unlock/lock/unlock. SOmetimes even just opening the drivers door seemed to put the doors into this lock/unlock/lock/unlock cycle.

Carefully cutting open the boot in the drivers door hinge revealed 4 wires broken.

Couple of hours with some wire strippers, soldering iron, heat-shrink tube etc has reconnected all the wires and now the problem has gone away.

After re-assembling all seems O.K. except that now I cant open the rear windows from the front door switches. I guess another wire broken somewhere in that boot but it'll have to wait for another day, its just started to snow!

I have replaced the Alt twice and voltage reg four times along with the batt once but it still will not charge. I must have a bad wire somewhere which is why i am looking for the wiring diagram.

wiring schematics

Hey Sarge,
I am looking for the wiring schematics/diagrams for an E55 AMG (2005). I am attempting to install E55 seats in a late model. There is a lot of wiring going on and I am looking for any resources that will make the installation easier.
Thanks,
Bheide

I don't know the whole answer, but, a couple of years ago my '98 V230 air conditioning compressor electric clutch fell apart. When this happened, apart from the air-con not working, the auto-gearbox went into limp home mode, the electric windows wouldn't work and neither would the speedo! I guessed that in it's self destruction it had taken out a fuse or something electrical. I tried all the fuses I could find and they were all O.K. I was in France at the time and a local garage replaced the airconditioner, at not inconsiderable expense, and fixed it up for me. His english was worse than my French so I had no real explanation, other than 'you pay me now or you no get key'.

I'm not sure if I'm being helpful though except that my, very similar symptoms, were caused initially by the air conditioning compressor clutch.

ADJUSTING THE TIME

Switch to time mode (press button with clock symbol twice)
Hold same button down until the hour display flashes
Adjust hour using + or - buttons
Press button (with clock symbol) briefly the minute display flashes
Adjust minutes using + or - buttons
Press the button (with clock symbol) briefly and the time will be stored.

Follow my Oil level checking post step by step, it does work, and I tested it before posting.
You will have to have the ASSYST computer otherwise I don't think it shows this.

As far as I am aware, there is no display of fuel consumption on these vehicles.

Hi is there any way to change the display from miles to kilometers ?
According to a person from MB that I spoke to you can't reconfigure the clusters. If you can get a cluster that is already showing kilometers then it might work and perhaps MB would set it to show the correct distance too.
