Thanks again malcolm, my nearest indie is 20 miles away, i don't think driving that far in first gear will do me or the car any good. One thing, how is the speedo driven, is it from the wheel sensors??.Then this just leaves the speed sensor plate to be checked out on STAR,,any good indie can check this

Well, this my second c180, my other is an eatate which my wife uses. This particular one iI have only had a few days, having bought it from a car auction, 76k with a fully documented service history. I have just checked the MOT history on the VOSA site, and it failed it's last MOT because the abs light was on. After reading this I went out and turned the ignition on and the ABS ligtht did not come on, I then removed the cluster to find someone has tried to wire the abs bulb to something else to make the light go off in order to get through the MOT. I removed this wireing bodge job and now the light is on all the time. This pointing to an ABS problem, which is why i asked how the speedo is driven.Yes I forgot that bit,, this could be stopping the box from changing if speed signal missing,,I hope that someone else can come up with some info on this,,did both faults happen at the same time
Malcolm, as i said earlier, i'm not great on a pc. I tried to open your email and just got a pagefull of non sensical letters and squiggles???Your brake lamp switch that sits just over the brake pedal could be faulty giving the faults that you have.
I have sent 1 paper on this
