Mercedes-Benz CL500 Problems

Door Control Modules May Fail

A door control module/actuator may fail. Our technicians recommend finding an expert to repair them. Taking the door trim panels off requires expert knowledge because they can break and the pieces are very expensive.

Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

Center Console Armrest May Break

The center console armrest can break. Replacement is commonly the recommended repair.
