The door controls dont work. When I press the seat heater light comes on but does not stay on. So I figured not the door control since it must have power. What about fuses or any type of modules? Seat was put all the way back and down and left there for several days. When returned it would not move at all. difficult to look under the seat since it is pushed down.

You hear after the car is already warmed.

Fuel is leaking profusely under car at rear passenger door.

The blower module is the thing that controls the blower that sends air into the car. Such as the heater, defroster, A/C, etc... We replaced the blower module and it still does not work. And yes, we do know for a fact that the blower works.

The instrument cluster on my 2002 S430 has stopped lighting up and the dealer is telling me it was replaced in September 27th 2006. The recall notice was mailed out on Sept 29th 2006. I suspect that it was replaced with the same unit that was recalled. So I am wondering can you tell the year of manufacture by the numbers on the sticker attached to the cluster. Or what numbers should appear on the cluster if it was replaced due to the recall. Thanks

It is a 2002 Mercedes S430

In summer at temps above 75 the a/c on drivers side cools at stops and warms after take off. Also in tunnels or under passes it cools until you drive back into sunlight. Passenger side is fine. Temp setting doesn't matter.

im having a problem removing old cover

i changed the cluster, tried 3 differnt clusters it still didnt work, i even fixed the original one and it still dont work any ideas to why

When the outside is cold and the car is warmed up when I push on the gas the car hesitates to go. When the day has warmed up and I get into the car the car goes when the gas pedal is pushed. Someone told me that this might be a transmission problem and then someone told me that it might me a throttle problem. Anyone else had this problem?
