2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 Problems

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.

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.

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

2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 Questions

i was travelling uphilland it was hot outside, would this cause the car to just shut off?

At start engine fan starts up but eventually settles in at a very high speed that sounds like a turbine engine.

I just replaced the crankshaft position sensor. Now it won't start. I am pretty sure the car needs to be "programmed" now that it is replaced. HELP!!!The car had been stalling out while driving.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 Reviews

bought c240 stalls while at stop light,will not start again for awhile. ad it for two months first Mercedez,may b the last one

I purchased this 240 4matic wagon in 2008 with 40K miles on it and have been happy with it since. I replaced a link for the sway bar but that was not very costly. It's now making a kocking noise when I go over bumps. it may be the loose nut for the strut as suggested in this thread. So a couple of suspension problems. The car went dead on me once. Never happend again. I think an electric...

My wife and I bought this wagon new and it has been THE BEST car I've ever owned. There have been no problems whatsoever. It's not the fanciest car I've owned, but it has been the most trouble free. It is maintained regularly, but driven hard with kids. I wish it were a little larger on the inside.
