I have a late 1996 R129 SL600.
Recently the use of kickdown has resulted in the immediate trigger of Limp Mode and illumination of the BAS/ESP orange light. Restarting the engine clears the symptoms until kickdown is tried again.
If kickdown is not used the car drives perfectly, with no...
I am totally confused as to which fault code reader in need for my 1996 SL600.
From what I have read the diagnostic system on this generation is a bit of a hybrid, could someone please explain in layman's terms.
I hear the name Star banded about but would prefer to spend less.
Cylinder misfire on M120 engine (SL70)
There was some misfiring detected in 2 or 3 of the cylinders in my car.
According to the dealer, it would require about 32 manhours to remove cylinder heads to check (so some £5,000).
Other option is to run some miles on it to see if...
Hello. I raised the car on a scissor lift (all wheels hanging free) but forgot to press the Lock button on the hydraulic ADS before doing so.
Just wondering if I am going to cause problems with the ride height sensors etc by forgetting to Lock the suspension in place first? Any procedure I need...

I am considering putting between 4 to 6k in a week end car which would be either a 2000-2003 CL500 or an older SL350 or SL500. They both appear sexy...

After a fair bit of looking and umming and erring I took the plunge on a 1999 SL600 Sport a few weeks ago. I have a weakness for big engines and wanted a toy to play with in the summer so it had to be covertible. Having seen Harry Metcalfe's video a while ago I set upon finding an...
Have just taken the plunge and purchased a 1999 SL600 Sport....I am a sucker for punishment and the V12 lure was too strong for me! The history on the car was great, 2 owners only...always main dealer serviced and cherished etc. It is a wonderful machine, the engine is simply a...
After a well cared for R129 SL500 or even SL600. Preferably navy blue. Mileage is totally irrelevant to me as long as there is evidence it has been looked after and there is paperwork to back that claim up! What have you got........:cool:
