    I have just received after several delays my LHD 2007 320cdi from Germany .
    The owner’s manual is in German & I cant make head nor tail of it. Also cant find any on line info.
    The car has auxiliary heating & has a small remote control unit to operate the system. The remote has a window showing status, an on button , off button, plus two smaller buttons above these with no makings.
    I assumed the on would fire up a burner & warm up the coolant & also circulate warm air into the cabin. I also hope these systems can be timed to come on & off at preset times. Say half an hr before setting off for work in the mornings.
    I would be grateful if someone knows how these systems work could give me some advice on how to use it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have heater menu in instrument cluster? If not, your heater is aftermarket one, and is operated only via remote. Retrofitted and originals are programmed through instrument cluster.

    Best if you can identify the manufacturer of the aftermarket heater. Erberspacher is one that comes to mind. [ might be somewhere on the remote?] If its German you may be able access a users manual online /

    Thank you all for your replies, I think the system is factory fitted, the remote has the MB star on it. There is also a button beside the gear lever housing, that lights up a sub-menu in the dash display.
    Sorry I have not had a play with it yet or had a look at any components for a manufacturer as the temp here is -15degC & I am currently using my old 290td.As soon as weather improves I will investigate

    press and hold that button in the instrument panel for two seconds that'll turn it on

    you can use the remote in the same way (up to 300meters), from the User Guide it says...


    The auxiliary heating/ventilation heator ventilates the vehicle interior according to the values you have set on the air-conditioning control panel, and the interior temperature. You can set up to three switch-on times using the operating system.You can activate and deactivate the auxiliary heating/ventilation:

    the switch on the centre console

    the remote control and

    the preset time function

    page 207 of this manual explains it nicely.
