    Head Rest Screens

    I have screens in the head rests of my 2002 W220 and I have lost power to both of them and the 6 disc dvd player in the boot. As this was a modification done by the previous owner I have no idea where the fuse or relay would be to check if they were still working. Does anyone have these screens...

    Windscreen washers on my W220 not working

    Yesterday I ran out of water for the headlight and windscreen bottle and the warning sign came on. I filled it up but did not try it yesterday. However today I went to use it and nothing came out. I thought at first it might be the fuse (f10 which I can't find) but now I don't think its that as...

    Battery totally flat- help

    Just a quick update on how things went at the dealership. Firstly I take back any negative comments I have ever made about the dealerships. The guy that dealt with my car could not have been anymore helpful. For the some of £80.00 all in, I had all of the faults cleared from the system (in...

I have just finished resetting a few things with the help from some of the posts and everything is working fine.

    -15 and now nothing works! (W220)

    I stay on the outskirts of Aberdeen and it has been so cold the last two days (-15 in some cases). Since then the central locking has stopped working, the soft closure doors are not working and the boot (trunk) release won't open. The boot won't even open manually as it feels locked. Can anyone...

    Noisy engine on my S500

    In the last few days I've thought that the car (W220 S500 2002) had been sounding a bit off i.e. a faint ticking sound. I took off the plastic engine cover to locate the noise and I'm 99% sure its from the engine itself. I checked the oil and it seems to have used a small amount but nothing...

    TV - Can I fit this

    My 2002 W220 has the function button for the tv on the command unit but I do not have the tv function when you press the button. Can anyone tell me what is required to have this extra fitted (I am presuming that the wiring etc would already be fitted in the unit) Thanks

    W220 Tail light bulbs
