My Mercedes W210 CDI (oil cooled) Alternator stops charging on above 1800 RPM.
All internal and external lights become dimmed.
While Idling, there is no extra sound but on increasing RPM strange swirling sound comes on.
Belt already checked.
No Battery light appears on Dash (when not...
I am desperate for some help - I am losing the will to carry on. Brought an 03 CLK 55 W209 with 67k for £4000 a few months back.
4 weeks ago I was driving and got the battery warning message in the cluster. Battery went flat and had to get car recovered.
Got car home up on ramps...
Hi, my car has started making a weird noise. It does it almost everytime I start the car. It lasts for around 30 seconds and stops. Then reappears every 3-4 minutes. I don't notice it when driving, just when idling.
I'm really hoping it's just a pulley???
I'm trying to upload a video but its...
I have an A180 CDI Avantgarde 2005 (automatic). Have been driving it for 1 1/2 months without any problems. Last weekend I got the alternator error on the dashboard and drove it to the local garage. It appears now that the car won't move at all as there is a transmission problem. Can an...
The pulley came off my alternator today requiring a recovery back to base.
Instead of requiring a pulley tool to release it is a loose fit on the shaft.
My suggestion to the garage was that they spot weld it back on which was an idea he was not keen on? How daft an idea is this?
My car is...
It would appear that I may need to disconnect the two auto transmission pipes that connect to the oil cooler/radiator to allow me to remove a faulty alternator from my car. I have managed to take the alternator off but these two pipes do not allow me to remove it from the car.
Can I simply...
Once removed, how do I get the alternator out of the engine bay of my 2003 SL500?
I can take it off easily enough, but try as I might I can't physically manoeuvre it out of the car.
Any help, detailed instructions would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much.
Just recently I'm getting the 'comfort functions disabled' indication after start up.
Reading a few posts about Alternator / Regulator / BCM I did a few checks but want to run them by you for confirmation.
I get the UB indication up at Key Pos 1 and it reads 11.6v (battery hasn't been charging...
I recently replaced the alternator with a refurbished unit and now I have an issue with the engine not ticking over smoothly when I have my lights on and certain lights are flickering - interior and rear lamp clusters.
Is this a faulty alternator or maybe just a badly connected earth...
I have a 1987 SL420. I've had the battery replaced twice after it failed (car wouldn't start). I've found the voltage on the new battery when engine is running (tick over) is 12.15 volts. When revving it's 12.3 volts.
The alternator is the original Bosch one with a regulator clipped to the...
Right so... the pulley of the alternator in missus' car has started to have a bad attitude and decided to create problems. Red battery light on dash came on, wife pulled over. I open the hood, and the power steering fluid from the pump had leaked out. So I replaced the pump, thinking that maybe...
I have just joined up here with as I have just bought my first Merc, a 2004 E2.7 cdi Elegance.
The car is immaculate, but I need to get some assistance with regard to a couple of things and would appreciate any input.
I bought the car 10 days ago and apart from a small fault...
Been lurking for a few years but it's time for my first post.
I have an '06 CLS 320 cdi. I love the thing to death but it wouldn't start this morning and gave me the 'Reduced Breaking Power - Start Engine' warning in red before all the lights on the dash gave up. I couldn't...
I have a merc clk240 elegance coupe which i purchased a few months ago.
cut a long story short this is what happened.
Purchased the car and was waiting for a recovery truck to tow it back to where i live as there was no tax or mot. drove it onto the truck and it run out of petrol...
Hi I need help please!,
I have a 2003 E320 diesel W211. I went on holiday and came back to find my car battery dead. (Even though ym neighbour started it once a week!) So I jump started it and everything seemed fine. After a round trip of 50 miles just when I was getting home I got the...
Hi everyone , this is my first time s please be gentle!
I have got a few issues with my Ml 280 Sport 2006 model!
1) I keep getting the ESP/ABS and run flat indicator not active lights up for short time on initial start up and lasting around 10/30 mins.
2) the red battery sign keeps coming...
My 2002 C220cdi estate makes a dreadful noise on full lock (left or right). It doesn't seem to matter waht speed I am doing. As soon as the steering wheel gets to the end of its travel, a loud noise starts.
I have checked the power steering fluid, the level is OK. I suppose that this now...
My introduction to Mercedes ownership hasn't started well . Looking for a car that could allow my Porsche 928GT to avoid a daily motorway commute (and frequent visits to petrol stations ;-) I picked up a W210 E320 CDI Avantgarde. I was careful about who I bought it from and thought I had found...
I have a 1983 300D Turbodiesel. Has run very well and only 145,000 miles on it.
I was having electrical problems, had the voltage regulator replace, and replaced the battery, as it had been strained from the...
Hi all this is what happened on the ML a week ago,
On my 2003 ML the following lights have illuminated on the dash. They are as follows:
I have read the manual and it says for the BAS/ ESP the on board voltage is less than 10 volts.
ETS to prevent the brakes...
