Mercedes-Benz SL600 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Attempted to lower soft top. The rear section retracted and then just fell back down and nothing. It clicks when I try again.
Does this model have two fluid tanks. The front one is full. At least one of the cylinders has leaked. The one that raises the cover where the top is stored.
the original problem was intermittent at any speed might accellerate like cruise control accel on. Been at dealer for 2 months now goes straight to 5000 rpm and stays there. Dealer says not repairable
The top had been functioning normally. It stopped closing midcycle, and I can't get it to latch closed normally. The button that controls the top is lit up red, but blinks.... Hydraulic noise is present when I push the button. Any suggestions for getting it to work are much appreciated.
More detail: tonneau is down, windows are down, the top is latched on one side in front, and on neither side in the back.
oil pump support in the way .
working of steering pump
I've parked my 2006 SL600 for the winter in my garage. Since it finally hit over 10 degrees, I decided to start 'Kate" up. Start up was perfect. However, the dashboard warning lights said "ABC" and "Stop, car to Low" in beautiful bright red LED letters.
What's probably happened in the last 5 stored months?
might there be a seal that has leaked
In the principle it happened in different moments. Now it is permanent
after manually releasing the top I am unable to push the rear pins into the retainer slots.
Now car will not level out to be able to drive. Front end is dragging the ground and rear end is up fully extended.
I do not know if my car has a single or dual pump but would appreciate the part number if anyone knows it. I bought this a fix up car and everything is now perfect except the suspension light is on. Took it to Mercedes and they say pump has low pressure and price for new one installed will be about $3700 and not sure that will fix it. I would like to find one used to try. I think my pump is a single unit.
Mercedes will not give me the part number.
error code P1384
how do I locate and replace knock sensor
would it be fuses? or something else?
The passenger window should go down a slight amount when the door handle is used; the window should return to the full up position when the door is closed. The driver side works normally, but the passenger side works correctly only a small percentage of the time. The electric window switch works normally. What is the likely problem and can I fix it myself?
when i read my COBII i see the the output ov S1B1 is alweyes 0v is the sensor broken?
I need to remove the tcm and not sure which one it is. is it the A0215452232?
Also what is the best fluid to use?
tried pulling handle and followed owners manual but brake does not release
engine hard to start and sputters while running
Where is the hydraulic fuel level? Under the spare tire? Evan with the engine on the soft top switch only blinks & the soft top motor does not make any noise. At first try it did make a noise but after that the light only blinks and there is no noise coming from the soft top compartment I hope it is not the hydraulics. I have not had the hard top off for a couple of years.
to Lawrence Kansas with no problems or leaks. I then had all of the fluids replaced (car had 31,000 certified miles on it). After one day a large tranny fluid leak showed up on the floor. The dealer had changed the fluid, filter and pan gasket. They want me to bring the car in for a check up. What can I expect?
From time to time right after starting, the engine begins mis-firing and the check engine light comes on. I took to local Mercedes dealership and their equipment showed a mis fire on 1, 4, and 5. We replaced the plugs and a few days later the problem has returned. If I turn the vehicle off and immediately back on, the mis-fire goes away (Check engine stays on).
This vehicle is in excellent repair overall and I have done all the typical maintenances etc.
What could possibly cause this after replacing the plugs???????
when starting accelarate to high rpm not all ways disconect air flow meter on passenger side very little change in rpm disconect air fiow meter on driver side rough idle loss of power accelerate fair when park could this be air flow meter issue or stopped up converter

I purchaced a 1997 sl600 with minor frot end damage.All work is done ad now after starting the car,the front suspension stays down.Resivore tank was low so we filled it and still nothing.The rear went way up but the front did nothing.
