    Auxiliary battery malfunction

    Quick update..... Given the car is mapped I didn't want to go to a Merc dealer, and so it's been into an indie in Chester today. They diagnosed that the aux battery (capacitor) was at fault and fitted a new on. £255 all in and no more messages (for now). Thanks all for your help and advice

    First modification on my C63

    I like the look of these and might get one myself. Quick question, my car is silver, should I go full black or black and chrome? Any other silver owners bought one who would share a photo please? Cheers

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    You are an absolute star. I've just managed to pull the top of the lid off, and the pin went back in first time. Lid now opens and closes as it should. Thanks to everyone who offered help and advice. Now, if I can stop the "auxiliary battery malfunction" warning .....

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Thanks all. I've been ignoring it of late, but will try to take it out this weekend and see if I can get the front lid off. If I can, I may get a new unit from Merc and see if the front lid is interchangeable.

    Auxiliary battery malfunction

    Mine is still showing the message even though the start stop is working and the symbol is green. My local dealership offered to cover the cost of the diagnosis under the warranty, but wouldn't confirm if that would also cover the cost of the aux battery. I think I'm going to have to book mine in...

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Are the parts the same across the whole W205 range? In other words is the AMG badge on mine simply stuck on? I can see plenty for around £40 on eBay, but the AMG versions seem to be more like £250?

    Auxiliary battery malfunction

    Would you believe it, I started the car earlier and it's telling me I have an auxiliary battery malfunction again!! I've driven the car, and the start stop icon is green, with the function working as it should do. I don't want to take it into Merc for a diagnostic under warranty particularly...

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Great, many thanks. I'll try to get to the back of mine first in case the piece will go back in. The ones I looked at were more expensive than that, probably as they were subject to "AMG tax" 😤

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Thanks for the info. Don't suppose you've got a part number, or an image of the part so I can get one? There are a few complete units on eBay but they seem to be silly money....

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    That’s brilliant and hugely helpful. Two questions; 1. How do I get the lid off as in your photo? 2. I managed to get the console out earlier, but couldn’t work out how to disconnect the 12v socket. Any tips? Thanks again, I think you’ve cracked it

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Sorry, in case I wasn't clear, this is the lid which won't stay shut.

    W205 C63 Cupholder cover won't stay closed

    Hi all I've had a mask stored in the cupholder area in my W205 C63. It got stuck on something at the weekend and when I got it free, this part fell out and now the lid won't stay shut. I suspect that this is the longest of long shots, but has anyone got a diagram of the parts in question so I...

    Auxiliary battery malfunction

    Thanks for the info, and as per my last update it appears to have sorted itself out, at least for now. How does that happen then, if it's a capacitor rather than a battery - i had assumed using it had charged the battery sufficiently but evidently not. Am I likely to have it happen again? Cheers

    Auxiliary battery malfunction

    Quick update. Just driven to my office and back to pick up some stuff and the warning message has gone. Looks like I must actually have a battery and the longer drive has charged it sufficiently. I'll leave my booking in place for a week to see if it happens again, but fingers crossed it was as...
