Hey

I recently picked up a 1999 v230. It has a button on the dash that has a P over a W - I have no idea what this is supposed to do?

Any suggestions?

Also the van runs at 80ºC out of 120ºC - is that normal?

Temp level seems ok, i wouldn't worry about what the switch should do. It wont work by now and will be too expensive to fix.

Thx dieseljo, the switch does work, i have discovered what the 'W' is for - it makes the van start in 2nd for winter conditions. P is still a mystery though!

Power mode perhaps?

If its an Auto, the the P is for power, which it keeps the gear in for longer before changing to the next gear
