    Battery charging

    Given general lack of use I will be attaching the ctek charger to both my w219 and the wifes r230 (separately of course). As they both have a main and aux battery does charging the main also charge the aux or do you have to do them both individually (pain) I think AMgeed has a ctek attached so...

    CLS55 w219 A/C problems

    my cls 55 a/c stopped working today. The red light on the a/c button was off but when I pressed it to turn it on it flashed about 6 times and then went off again. Did this about four times and no change. I assumed it needed a regas (which it did as it turned out) so I had it pressure checked and...

    SL R230 clock

    The didgital clock in my wifes 06 SL R230 with command has started losing about 2 mins a week. I guess its not linked digitally to the command system so probably just needs a new clock? Just wondered if a slight drop in voltage might have this effect.
