Mercedes-Benz SLK32 AMG ProblemsHarmonic Balancer May Fail and Damage Timing Cover
The rubber bond in the harmonic balancer can decay, which causes the balancer to move and work its way toward the timing cover. If the balancer comes into contact with the timing cover while the engine is running, it will fracture and damage the cover and potentially other surrounding parts. The harmonic balancer should be inspected at every service.
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.
Failed spark plug wires and/or ignition coils can cause intermittent misfires (rough running); the Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Diagnoses of the ignition system will be necessary to determine which components are at fault.
Mercedes-Benz SLK32 AMG Questionsboth windows stop working at same time (1 answer)
I Checked the fuses ,they are all ok,windows do not work with switches They were working the nite before and stopped working the next morning
After replacing the battery,
the front power windows do not work,
the top will not go up,
the turn signals do not work,
the wipers do not work,
and the doors will not lock.
The lights remained on despite the headlight switch being set to Off. Also, the security system started sounding at random intervals. I pulled three fuses to turn off the lights. The security system still sounds at random times. What would cause the lights to stay on with the engine off?
