    Looking for Mercedes Auto Electrician near Sheffiekd

    CLK 230 Convertible 2001 My engine management light is on and I'm pretty sure it's a minor thing as the car is performing as normal for 3-4 months since coming on. Done about 500 miles in that time. Had it come on once before about 5+ years ago and then when checked it was only a minor...

    clk 230 kompressor fault lights on

    Had my 230k for two years now. Had all those faults and initially they all frightened the crap out of me as the Mercedes systems are / were new to me. Just done a brake switch today as the ABS / BAS light was on dash and that fixed it. This also affected the Cruise Control too (had stopped now...

    Help required fitting a Kenwood DAB in A208 CLK 2001

    Went to an audio specialist today and was told that the best way is to use the 'proper' CAN Bus interface, so parted with £80. So it works fine now with no snipping or cutting into other wiring. Thanks for advice. The DAB is great. Installed it myself. A bit tricky getting A-pillar cover off...

    BAS light on when press brake / Also Cruise control stopped working. Help

    Brake switch replaced. No malfunctions showing now but cruise control has not come back on. Does it need to be reset on Star or am I looking out for another fault that could have been caused by the brake switch failure? Help please.

    Help required fitting a Kenwood DAB in A208 CLK 2001

    Hi, I've bought a Kenwood DAB to replace the standard Audio 10 with multi-changer as the CD never worked. I've got a problem with the wiring. I've changed stereo's before and normally a simple set of adapter wires are needed to connect the new to old set of wiring. On the CLK however i bought a...

    M.O.T Failure Problem

    Nothing. The 'so called - self proclaimed' Mercedes specialist auto electrician, were either incompetent or trying it on. They told me neither port was functioning, but the second auto electrician, said no fault with the ports at all. Worrying if i'd have left the car with the first place and...
