    What has failed??? HELP please

    Well I’ve just changed the starter battery in my SL as it was 14 years old because my key wouldn’t turn in my ignition, only to find out it wasn’t the battery, and yes, it was the original. It’s funny how some batteries last longer then others.....

    Here’s a way to test your EIS

    Wish it was just a case of dirty contacts. I tried it again this morning and it was back to not working again.

    Here’s a way to test your EIS

    Yes I read the same thing about the hair drier but being a long way from a power point it wasn’t an option, hence taking it out and putting it in the oven. On a SL you don’t have a steering lock so that wasn’t going to be the problem. I needed to take it out to send it away so not a waste of...

    A question

    Thanks for that Alex. From what I’ve read, as the SL has no steering lock, it was implied that there was an electronic device on the gear leaver which is part of the hand shake in the immobiliser circuit. Lee

    Here’s a way to test your EIS

    It’s a well known fact that the cold weather affects these units, giving it a warm through made it work, thus proving it definitely is that, that’s faulty. I will try it in the morning but know it won’t work again.

    Here’s a way to test your EIS

    So here’s an idea to save some time. Having read on here about people sending away their EIS’s only to be told there is nothing wrong with it, I thought I’d make sure before doing so. I’ve just taken mine out of the car and put it in the oven for 10 minuets on 50 degrease, put it back in and hey...

    A question

    Hi all. Does anyone know how the gear selector on a sl r230 acts on the EIS? Just taken mine out and along with the wiring there was a cable that I’m guessing connects to the gear selector. I read somewhere that there is another electronic unit that works in place of the ESL. Any advice would be...

    Help! Battery problem with SL R230

    The battery in the boot is charged and there is no “consumers off line” in the dash which is usually the case. I replaced it last year. Also I have been told that the batteries supplement each other......

    VW Transporter to a Mercedes Vito Sport ??

    Bluefin is from superchips. If your still in warrantee then this is a hand held device that will allow you to load and un load your map. That way, any problem with the motor and their none the wiser.

    VW Transporter to a Mercedes Vito Sport ??

    So have you gone for power or economy or a bit of both? I was quiet interested in Bluefin. You can change back and forth as much as you like. @£300 it sounds good value. Wonder if anyone on here has it????

    VW Transporter to a Mercedes Vito Sport ??

    Well I had a Transporter 2.5 and I must say, I had it for 10 yrs from new and will say it was probably the cheapest overall to run. It was heavy on drive shafts and I was on my 3rd set when I sold it to my mate who still loves it. When it was time to change I looked at another T5 but they didn't...
