    W203 - swap cd changer for a bluetooth module?

    Have you thought about a Dension gateway module? If your car has a MOST bus then you can replace the cd changer with the gateway and connect IPhone etc directly - it also offers Bluetooth phone integration and all your existing audio controls work as normal. As it happens....... I have a...

    R230 / SL space saving spare wheel kit

    For sale - complete spare wheel kit for R230. I purchased this prior to selling my SL55 and it is in unused condition. The kit comprises a space saving spare wheel, polystyrene insert, holding-down fasteners, and air compressor to inflate the tyre. Very expensive from MB, much better than the...

    Replacement Key Fob Reprogramme/Recode?

    I needed a new key for my keyless go R230 SL55. My dealer was helpful and I had already researched that it was not possible to re-use someone else's old key from eBay although there is a guy (Birmingham area) that can do reprogramming to basically clone a second key but keyless go is a problem...

    SL500 Consumer battery drain

    Mmmmmm well actually on my SL55 the consumer battery is at lest twice the size of the piddling little starter battery in the front! I only use my SL55 every couple of weeks and the consumer battery is always low if I don't leave it permanently connected to a automatic trickle charger when the...

    Number Plate Fault

    The signal acquisition module (SAM) is under the driver side 'rear seat' (well, the cupboard where the seat would have been if there was one. I would try disconnecting the consumer battery (in the boot), wait for a period, reconnect and try again. I had convinced myself that I had a wiring fault...

    Number Plate Fault

    Might not be the same fault as yours, but I recently (2015) had the same problem with my R230 SL55. The RHS number plate light failed and gave a dash warning. I had a spare bulb and fitted it - it still didn't work. After much messing around and reading articles on the internet it appears that...

    Keyless Go keys

    Going back to E55BOF's post, all the button functions on the new key will work fine without coding on a new key. Your dealer just looks at the next available 'slot' in the EIS based on keys previously supplied for your car and code a new key to that 'slot'. Keyless go is a different thing...

    Keyless Go keys

    I ordered a non-chrome keyless go key just a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be fully programmed from the dealer, however the keyless go part did not function. I have a star system, I checked and the new key needed to be assigned to channel 1 (my other working key was on channel 2). I made the...

    R230 SL3520 Un-switched 12v power for Dension

    What head unit is it...... Are you using the fibre loop through the Dension? Have you set the links on the Dension to suit the MB MOST protocol? Paul G

    Keyless Go stop/start button problem - R230

    All sorted and working normally again! The connector wasn't in great condition so the wires are now soldered and heat-shrinked to make a proper and permanent connection. The button worked immediately after this repair. Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply to this post :) Paul G

    Keyless Go stop/start button problem - R230

    Yes I spotted that aerial and it's ok Richard. If I had a problem with the aerials or the key I would get 'key not identified' (or whatever the message is) on the cluster LCD when I press the start button. I'm not getting that message..... not getting anything..... It's like I'm not pressing the...

    Keyless Go stop/start button problem - R230

    Its definitely not the wiring from the gear stick - thats exactly what I was expecting it to be and hence my full strip down of the ESM (electronic selector module, ie the shifter unit). The wiring in there is like new (as also is the plastic shift interlock, I figured that I would change this...

    R230 SL3520 Un-switched 12v power for Dension

    I mounted my Dension next to the amplifier and picked up 12v from the cd changer. It's handy then for the convenient stowage box to mount the Dension connectors for iPod and memory stick where they are out of the way but still accessible. You can also get the fibre connections at the cd changer...

    Keyless Go stop/start button problem - R230

    After the installation of VCS (Linguatronic) to my SL I seem to have inherited a problem with my keyless go. The problem may be as a result of something that I have 'done' whilst installing the VCS equipment but I have checked all of my work and cant find anything that may have caused the...

    I would like to say a big 'thank you' for the messages and help that I received with this project. The VCS is now working perfectly following the replacement of the VCS module with one that is compatible with the car. Particualr thanks to: Richard Diesel Benz Alfie Happy Benzing! Paul G

    Linguatronic module part numbers

    I have the chance of a A203 820 7585 and I really wanted to know if this would work with my car, and that the reason the VCS doesnt work at the moment is because the existing module is not compatible. I don't want to spend money on another module if it's still not going to work :( Paul G

    Linguatronic module part numbers

    Richard - the phone is working fine through the A211 820 6285 module and there are no errors showing, the MOST loop is in the correct sequence, and the rest of the audio systems are all ok. When I pull the VCS lever nothing happens and its looking more and more like the VCS module that I have...

    Linguatronic module part numbers

    Thanks for replying Alfie. Do you happen to know what the 'newer' part numbers are? Can you confirm that A211 820 6285 is not compatible with this car? I've got one of these and it doesn't seem to work. It would help if I could confirm that it doesn't work due to compatibility issues rather...
