    C180 not showing gear selection or w/s mode

    Hi guys I've just bought a 2001 c180 (w203) and I thought all was well until my dad (who's had mercedes for years) took it for a drive and noticed that the mfd doesn't show what gear is selected or what w/s mode is selected, he also noticed that the car doesn't seem to shift into 5th so it's...

    W210 w/s

    The newer cars with c/s have the gearbox shift points altered depending on mode. But what about the older w210? I realise that winter takes out 1st gear. Snowing hard here and I have to get out in the morning. If it keeps like this I will be walking to the main road to meet a taxi!

    W/S setting switch replacement

    The switch that switches between the W and S setting on the gearbox has gone kaput and isn't working.

    Daft question about W/S button

    OK, This might seem like a daft question, because I'm sure that mose MB owners know the answer to this already. What does the W/S switch next to the auto shifter on my CLK do. I'm guessing its for switching the shifting program of the auto, but I cannot really feel any difference whether its...

    Autobox W/S setting.

    I'm assuming that as the winter setting changes up earlier there will likely be fuel consumption benefits. On my SLK 230K there doesn't seem to be any noticeable loss of performance using this setting. Is more strain put on the box by using the winter setting? Dave Vito 108CDI; SLK 230K
