    Hi all, I've been trying to measure the supply to the 3rd brake light, my multimeter registers 12v only momentarily then I have to wait before it will register 12v again. Does the Voltage switch off if an open circuit is detected as I have the light disconnected? The mechanic disconnected it...

    Diesel Particulate Filter

    Hi everyone, currently have a fault code showing on my clk 270cdi p1189 vacuum intake shutdown. If I have a blocked DPF would this cause this error code and stick the car in limp mode.

    mercedes c270 inlet port shut off

    Thats interesting Murray Motors! Does this really work? I have this problem on my 2003 clk 270cdi, and it will save a nice wedge if it works. Hopefully I might be able to get the linkage back on without taking the manifold off but if I have to this could be the way to go.

    fault code reader. Has anybody used a hand held scanner on a 2003 270cdi? My car does have an OBD socket but I'm not sure what scanner to purchase as it is pre 2004. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Engine check light on

    Can anybody tell me where the oxygen sensor is on my 2003 clk 270 cdi. The car starts and drives ok until i want to accelerate away quick. Fuel consumption is normal so I don't think there are any serious problems. Could it be just a matter of resetting the check light and if it doesn't come...
