I have a 2011 W212, sometimes I have car turned off and listen to music (audio 50 iPod interface) if I've got a long wait, after half an hour I always get a bit worried and switch it off as i'm worried about the battery going flat.
Question was, is there any protection built in that...
I have ( I had thought) disabled the auto door locking feature on my 2012 C Class in case I get locked out. Book says it locks automatically if the wheels are turning and the engine is running.
I turned it off at the start of my last trip by holding the 'unlock' button until I heard...
I've been looking for something as a project, I seen this when it was first listed and watched it since.
1991 MERCEDES 190E 2.5-16 BLACK | eBay
Has anyone seen it in the flesh?
If it lost the wheels, grill, eyebrows, mirrors and tints it would automatically be improved. I can see the...
At least this replica will have quality.
From the article:
A trained eye can usually detect a doppelganger in a matter of seconds, but you'll need more than that for this Ferrari California replica.

Hi, My car has a note in the service history saying "No 2 Glow plug snapped, have turned glow plug light off via STAR"
I've now had all 6 Glow Plugs changed with No2 being drilled out and a new glow plug relay too.
However although they do now work there is still no light on the dash on...
Hello all, does anyone have any knowledge on how one would either retrofit DISTRONIC PLUS with Steer Assist, or enable this option on a 2012 W221? I am trying to find out if that is just enabling the option or does it require retrofitting additional components
These are the required...
Well, the winter hasn't been kind to the ('diamond turned') alloys on the Kia and they started to go milky on one of the edges. (Not as bad as the AMG ones on the CLK though :/ )
So the nice man at Kia replaced all four free of charge :rock::rock::thumb:
I've looked on the web, and I can't...

After checking the forums for a solution I found the brake light switch is a common cause of the BAS ASR light.
The BAS ASR and ABS warning lights come on but only when the headlights are turned on.
I have changed the brake light switch but that has not...
Maybe a daft question, not sure but here goes. Sometimes after turning the engine off on my 99/2000 w210 E320CDI, it sounds like the fan or blower keeps going after turning the engine off. I have had a look under the bonnet to try and determine where the noise is coming from. The heater...
I've got a clicking sounds coming from the rear right hand side of the car when I turn on the ignition. Lasts for about ten seconds.
Garage says it's likely to be the power supply control unit, which determines which battery to charge.
Problem is - it's 557 plus VAT to replace...
So as many of you will be aware my car has suffered from various build quality issues since the day I drove it off the forecourt.
This is my first Mercedes Benz. Previously I have run BMW, Ford and Volvo.
Whilst I was somewhat disappointed with these issues on a "premium product" my dealer...
Its pretty impresssive , and like or hate the monarchy ( I love 'em ) , it shows that when we put our minds to it , we can do things in style.
94 feet of beauty , the Royal Rowing Barge ' Gloriana ' ..... just built.
Had my wheels off recently for major refurb and until this work the SRS warning light has always come on. MB stealers claimed the sensor needed replacing at £303 but I did not go ahead with work as I have not had the car that long and wanted to get to understand the car and this problem.
I have two engine faults I have no idea about
1) Often makes tapping sounds when starts for first 5 seconds (not tappets) and when the car starts and the engine revs a tiny bit up for a second or two (as usual on a car?) it is accompanied by a fast soft tapping
2) Makes tapping sound like...
Last night when I parked up after quite a short journey there was a high speed electric fan that stayed on after I turned the car off and it definatly wasn't the main cooling fan, it stayed on for a good 5 or more minutes then turned itself off, the car wasn't running hot and had only been on a...
