Mark, We may be getting closer. Please be understanding when I ask what you will be doing for $950.00 plus ship to the US. You have only posted ten times to this Forum so in my book we really don't know anything about you. You need to tell us more in order to build a comfort level.marksmerc said:i will need your old module [not exchange] £475 + postage and it will be as good as new live in the UK one week turn around [then postal time] hope this answers all regards
Please take a look at p/n A1298203926 for £1,160.90 at Mercedes Benz Parts UK as well as the prior post that points to German Star in the US for $995.00 is a rebuilt price. As www.parts.com has them for $1583.25 NEW!marksmerc said:as its the chips getting corrupt ,due to age and spiking that causes this problem i will buy as many old modules as i can get ,so i can then offer on exchange basis for uk owners ,as belive me over here you simpley cant find them second hand , my original posts were for the same problem ie roof/window fault thats how i became interested in repairing them them that and £1000 from merc !!, i can only repair the 129 modules any year ,i love the car ,this module is the main weak spo , regards mark
So basically your telling us that you substitute a new microprocessor that runs a program that you loaded yourself? Really? But even if this is the truth, you don't need to charge anything close to $950 to cover your cost. Further, if it is true, how about sharing the code with the members of this forum?marksmerc said:the parts and software/hardware to re code is expensive
Oh but it can be that simple, and your credibility takes a big hit when you write otherwise.marksmerc said:you cant just open up and soilder a new off the shelf cheap diode !!!
I wouldn't know where to get a diagram. The repair parts are readily available at Radio Shack or from suppliers who sell on the Internet.schabey said:How do you find the electrical diagram for these and where do you get the part to repair it?
This would be a big step. How about scanning it and then emailing it to me or posting it on this thread. Couple your knowledge with Bill's expertise and these modules can probably be repaired for under $200.marksmerc said:i can send you a diagram for the module if you like FREE
