2001 Mercedes-Benz C240 Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

A repetitive clicking noise from behind the center area of the dash panel is usually caused by a broken stepper motor actuating arm. The actuating arm controls the direction of air flow in the climate control system. Disassembly of the center console will be required to access and change the broken arm with the updated, reinforced part.

Engine -- Verified

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The sway bar end link joints may wear and cause a knocking noise over bumps. Loose or warn links should be replaced to correct this type of noise.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A dead battery can be caused by a faulty seat control module that does not properly shut down.  Spilling liquids on the front seats can cause these modules to fail.

i just want to know how much for buying used computer engine?

2001 C240

I bought this car with 80,000 miles on it. It had been meticulously maintained by the original owner. Tons of electrical problems and noises after driving it about 5000 more miles. For example, Radio is on but there is no sound. If I open the passenger door the sound comes on. Battery drains overnight. Had to unplug the electric seat modules and airbag to keep the battery from draining. It will cost about $1,000 to replace the modules. I don't know what it will coat to fix the radio. Cup holder broke. The Mercedes engine will last forever but the rest of the car will cost you your house. DON'T BUY ONE. Check out the Consumer Ratings on Edmunds.com. Mercedes has some of the worst ratings along with BMW. Someone wrote, "don't listen to the whiners." Well, if a car is falling apart, then, it's falling apart. I don't consider these people whiners.

Great car ! Love the ride and the style. Only problem we have had
is the front motor mounts and the interior door handles. Has 135k
miles and hope to drive it another 135k.
