Hi,
My transmission warning light has come on several times this week :confused:, both times it has been below freezing (-1 to -3):(. not sure if this has anything to do with it..!
The light comes on and stays on until i turn the ignition off and re-start:crybaby2:, according to the owners manual it will stay in 4th if this happens...!:eek:
Mine seems to be fine, can count all 4 gear changes up and down. All seems normal except the light :surrender:
Any suggestions......?..........:bowdown:


Regards

Kev

You'll need to take it to MB or a specialist with Star Diagnostics to find out why it came on. It will only keep the error codes for 60 start/stop cycles.

Warning light

The lights only come on after a few mins of use at first start up, no matter how many times i start stop that day it dosnt come on any more.So after 60 start stop cycles will the fault code store lose the info it had and stop warning me with the light every day...? :confused:
If anybody knows an independant Merc specialist in the Bournemouth area it would be a great help..........:)

If it's doing that I think it must be detecting a fault every day and the light will not stop coming on after 60 start/stops.

Try a transmission specialist. People on here have recommended Sussex Autos. I've not been there but the advice that I have received over the phone has been top notch.

What's the long story? Always helpful to lay the cards on the table!

long story short... guy which I bought vito off, once took off the radiator and after few mins he's trying to start the engine. whe thing is... this is vito 113 with f*****g automatic gearbox. water radiator is with oil radiator as one piece. so when he was trying to start engine , oil from gearbox was just pumped out or something ike that. funny thing is the guy is a mechanic. anyway. i managed to put some oil back but the light blinks twice or more a day.
