    EIS / CAN / SAM Issues - Desperate fior help advice!

    I'm already a member, but have already called them out and was recovered to my mates on the night in question as it was 1am by the time we got a truck out and i couldn't face the 2 hour journey home on the night in question - bad move, i know now, but i know the issue is "logged" so to speak so...

    EIS / CAN / SAM Issues - Desperate fior help advice!

    Not at this stage, just need to attempt to start it, but assume removing it still might not allow me to move new key to postion 1/2 to allow a start - Unless i'm missing something? Emulation refers to re-coding emulating the original or new parts and i've found nobody in west wales yet! -...

    Hey MB270...was going to try your "press unlock twice and leave the key in the EIS for a couple of hours" - Is this click before insertion or with key inserted?

    Fao:e270 E270 owner - do you have a number/website - can't seem to PM. If all the hints and tips fail (have called breaker to source same ESL, but car was scrapped and they only advertised parts other people did, so not aware that ESL is coded and part of the package - :-( )... can I...

    EIS / CAN / SAM Issues - Desperate fior help advice!

    Olly thanks for your continued support with such a frustrating member! Would post a pic or send part no, but i'm also back at work/home and 80/100 miles from the car again - trying to gather info before another jaunt at the weekend. On another note, I went down this route as even with the car...

    EIS / CAN / SAM Issues - Desperate fior help advice!

    Not silly at all - No this was not swapped. I was informed this was not a coded part and was driven/released by the EIS? I bought all parts as a bundle from a breaker who had an advertised 'package' of parts which came without this also and so i presumed the previously supplied information...

    Hi Richard, any details welcome! They might if they get 12 volts from a battery reacting to sucked up salt water (from the acid overflow pipe!) and a shorting fuse box rather than a regulated 3volts?? This all worked fine pre-flood don't forget What do you mean by CANbus distributor(s)? If...

    Hi Olly, Firstly I really, really appreciate the input (especially as i know you are also an indy!) , but could you a a small bit of substance to your reasoning for me or throw me some form of bone?! My local (Cardiff) Indy specialist advised on sourcing another EIS, but that I'd need all...

    EIS / CAN / SAM Issues - Desperate fior help advice!

    Thanks for the reply - I think you've advised me before on something else and only wished you were closer (or near to thw car)! My issue is the car is in West Wales with no local Star/Indy around and would need further recovery back to Cardiff. I was hoping to start it, to get it to my Indy and...

    Hi Guys, I have an 02’ plate W210 E320 cdi that my mate managed to flood recently by leaving it sideways (nearside facing down) on top of a slipway and returning after one of the highest tides of the year and a super-moon (adding 2cm extra water for good measure!) Anyway, not a...

    W211 abs esp warning message

    Had this on my o2' 211 and it's also fixed itself. Diagnosis pointed toward a new sensor. However, prior to going down the sensor route someone (might have been on here) suggested changing the Brake light switch at the pedal as it's dual pole and sometimes not coming all the way back out means...

    S210 (02' E320CDI) Injector Crud...

    Hey Mark thanks for the reply...It's that thick in there it was caked up over the stretch bolts like a gasket! - Does the fuel element evaporate leaving the heavy oil behind to turn to sticky mess then?..I thought someone had poured some form of sealant along the cover to disguise a crack or...

    Well finally bought a new MAF insert today, but in removing the engine cover looks like my Injectors have been leaking a long while (another thing Stuttgart in Ponty failed to spot, so not even sure they changed my oil after my last rant in an earlier post tonight!) Anyway is the black crud...
