My friend, that is the $100,000.00 dollar question. I thought I had it figured out at least 20 times. Every time it happened it was under different conditions, and there were different variables. If I turned the key to the #2 position, hesitated and then started the car. When the car was started for the first time of the day. The temperature that day. And then due to how much gas I was in the tank. In the past two years of internet research, I have read so many different theory's from other Mercedes owners that I have started writing them down. Some possibly plausible, and others that were literally comical. Yet no one seems to have even close to a definite answer. My question is, "Why hasn't Mercedes just came forward, said they didn't have a clue, and do a simple recall. Although, I don't believe the odometer reading is affected when the gauges aren't working. Nor is the low fuel light when the gas gauge isn't working. I just purchased my third 96 C Class, and the cluster doesn't seem to show any signs of the symptoms. Good luck with your quest for the answer!
Trunk button near power windows, the key itself, or the remote on the key, wont open trunk. Nor can I lock the doors. Works fine in the ignition to start the car.
I went on a trip last week, all of a sudden it was working. I stopped to get gas, when I started the car to leave the gag station it wasn't working again. the digital milage and trip odometer along with lights work fine. Where do I start, the radiator was replaced recently.
