    Horn not working after steering wheel change (not the fuse or horn itself)

    Sounds like it is a push to break switch if the horn sounds with the earth disconnected. The contacts must be stuck closed. Any chance of a picture of the wheel without the air bag in place?

    Convert PGN Scans to Word Documents

    Windows 10 has an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which can read a picture of text along with a scan app'. Look up OCR in windows and you should be able to find a free bit of software to use.

    Belt squeal after pulley change M113K

    Any chance of a picture of the break, may yield a clue? I still think there is a pully out of alignment though. Grab a straight edge and lay it across the front of pairs of pulleys and see if it lays flat, if you have access to a laser level or pointer then use that to project a line across all...

    My 2012 ML headlights and dipped lights seem to be much dimer than before... Any ide why this should be happening?

    Hmmm if there's no change in brightness that pretty well rules out the battery and alternator, and no discolouration takes out the lamp housing so you're left with old lamps, voltage drop on supply or as Ted questions, something faulty in the HID lighting units if you have these and not ordinary...

    window issue

    Water sploshing around perhaps triggering the roll up/down feature. Don't know if this car has a separate convenience module controlling the windows or if they are BCM controlled though. Can you configure the feature off until you have found the issue so you don't get wet?

    My 2012 ML headlights and dipped lights seem to be much dimer than before... Any ide why this should be happening?

    Old lamps, yellowed plastic lens, moisture tarnishing lamp reflectors, weak alternator and or battery, voltage drop across supply or earth cables. Do they change brightness with or without engine running or being revved?

    1994 w124 estate 280 poor fuel economy

    Here is a wiring diagram (climate control but almost the same layout as just AC and wire colours are the same.) Factory AC does need the extra sensor. Merry Christmas. Dean

    1994 w124 estate 280 poor fuel economy

    Just read your other thread. Is your A/C compressor disengaging? Check the front disc is not rotating when the system is off. This would affect your MPG a lot.

    That's cracked and delaminating, about the same size as the one on my s class which has been like it since 2005. Don't lose sleep over it. :)

    CEL Light On. Multiple Fault Codes. Common short Circuit Issue?

    First thought is that the under bonnet wiring loom has rubbed through against a metal edge and cut some wires and left others grounded to the body. Chose one of those components that you can get at easily and follow it's wiring.
