It's well established that the shifting assembly was faulty on these cars.
need a new ket to start the car
Took the car to have an oil change and the mechanic came in and said the car wouldn't shift out of Park. It was stuck. Some think it might be the parking cylindroid and others have guessed it will be the shifting assembly.
But when I start and put in gear, it levels itself. I head someone indicating that it is due to dirty hydraulic fluid in ABC system and suggesting to extract it from the top and replace it, but I do not think you can suck out all the oil!
The altenator warning light goes on and off. I replaced the altenator two times,and still have the same problem.
Both altenators checked out to be good.
Do you think the wire harness would cause this?
Do I need any special tools
What I nee dis the letter diagram the spark plu wires need to be in. Im replacing them and dont think the mechanic placed them in the right order. If somneone has one or know the alphabetical or please let me know. Thanks
This has occurred several times but seems to shift properly if I shut the car off and restart it.
The cig. fuse blows (there is no element in the lighter), then the power seats only work with one of the doors open
I would like to keep it for as long as possible and drive the thing forever until atleast 180k+. is there anything I can do to prolong the life of my car and make sure no major problems come up?
The leak is coming from around the sensor fitting that screws into the valve.. the sensor the the wire clips into..Can I replace only the sensor? Is that just an O ring there? Do I need to relieve the pressure some how?
Autozone tested once when check engine light one and gave us codep6747. New amp put in twice but lasted less than week. Check engine light not on, but a couple of other warning lights flashed for short while before fuse blew second time, did not notice which ones. Now no warning lights but also no dashboard lights.
warning light is coming on. starts out as white warning then switches to a red warning. there has been some fluid on the floor near the right front tire.
passengers in my car can`t use seatbelt anymore. only one freak time has it worked in the last year.

SRS and SOS lights are on for no reason
Car manual says that car came with two (2) cards with code from Bose. Long since gone, I am not first owner. I don't use this car often enough so I keep a battery maintianer on the battery, but had long power outages. Would not like to pay MB hundreds for this code.
there is two hyd. valves above windshield, one is leaking, bought replacement, but having problem installing. chrome shaft needs to be removed and installed on new valve?
Battery had to be recharged and negative was disconnected.
Not sure if the battery went down due to the mis-function of the window or a bad connection at or near the battery.
Window does not release from compression of weather strip when door is open. Door will not close correct due to defect.
my hard top on my sl500 wont open and i checked the resvoire in the trunk and its empty
Anyone know how difficult that is to fix and how expensive? I'm pretty handy if I have a diagram that shows where to look for the leak and what to look for, Seems it must be a seal or hose?
I am replacing my cross over oiler tubes that feed the valve lifters. In doing so, I need to remove all the cam caps and then re-torque the bolts. I need the torque specs for the bolts and of course the valve cover too.
my soft top doesn't work properly and when I open the doors my windows go all the way down instead of just a little.
also, when I parked my vehicle...you could hear a loud whining noise (similar) to a power steering noise when the wheel is turned
