2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK500 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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Computer control modules for the seats and doors, the CD changer, and the brake lamp switch tend to fail.

Engine -- Verified

The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance. Communicating these specific symptoms to your technician can save diagnostic time.

Drive Train -- Verified

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid into the wiring harness. If not repaired, the oil will migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. At that point, a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct this problem.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Going over large bumps in convertible models may cause the roll bar to deploy, rendering the roof inoperative. Special tools are generally required to return the roll bar to its stowed position.

great car to drive, very quick to respond with the 5.0 liter, drives excellent. i had to replace the air conditioning control unit in the interior of the car. also, the lifters make noise in the recent past.mechanic said 500 liter have had some issues with lifters. car has only 39k, and i am a bit disapointed especially that it is a mercedes, but over all, the car is a pleasure to own & drive. never looks like it is getting older. great lines. handsome with cadet blue exterior, stone interior that sports a black rag top. great summer fun car .
