    Massive battery drain command headunit (Repair)

    I have to say the aftermarket units do not appeal to me :( ... if it was my only car then I would do it. But since this is a "weekend car" I would like to keep it a stock as possible in that aspect. (apart from changing exhaust)

    Massive battery drain command headunit (Repair)

    Oh I agree it is a network of many components. However the headunit does not power up at all... The screen has no signs of life at all. Hence I am talking about the headunit. It glows hot in the thermal scanning though. However when it is unplugged the drain goes away. Sent from my CLT-L29...

    Steering wheel wobble on AMG cars?

    Here she is ruby black with white ash wood. Mind you I had steering wheel vibrations with this one too... And I thought how bad luck can someone have? Lol They changed 2 pairs of front brake disks and 3 pairs of front pads and did 3 times wheel balancing. This sorted out the problems... Not sure...

    Steering wheel wobble on AMG cars?

    I had a steering wheel vibration at the C350e at the same speeds you are describing. The Mercedes dealer could not fix it the car was at the garage for 3 weeks out of the 7 weeks of ownership. At the end I rejected the car as I was fed up with going back and forth. And bought the 640d...

    Yeah starting to think so. :-) The chirp I can here is the clutch engagement from the compressor so doesn't bother me. I do have a bit of hesitation around 1500rpm when gently accelerating. But when pushing it harder it flies. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Indeed :) I was under the impression that little crappy battery lol the FIAMM which is located infront of the windscreen passenger side was mainly for the SBC braking module as back up power?

    OK my battery warning apparea to be the SBC battery ... before I order one, is there something I need to look out for? I did some tests and seems to be a problem with the SBC and not the 12V main battery. I.e. it says the SBC hold is not available... Cheers :)
