my ignition switch is not turning and my alarm light are flashing what the problem

Then ESP light (steady) comes on while sitting, engine running. I shut down for 2 hours. Then ALL is back to normal!!! What's going on?

OBDII Monitors Not Ready - Secondary Air System. How do I fix this issue? Do I need to replace the SAS pump and relay valve for the Smog test to pass?

Whenever I need to get my car moving quickly it makes a hard sort of noise coming from up under the car beneath the drivers feet. Its not the engine its either the catalytic converter or back pressure from the turbo I think. Anybody else have this issue?

What could be the problem car was hit and radiator could be licking can you suggest something

It takes a good 4-5 trys just to start up my car. I just got it a little while back. Engine seems to be fine still dont know whats wrong with it. Any help would be great.

The heater ac just blows on low speed. Thanks

When I start the start it vibrates when I step on the gas the entire car jerks.

About half or more of the time now my driver door when I get out and close it or get in and close it and let the close-assist feature suck it shut, it takes 5-10 seconds for it to respond and then pull the door shut. What could be causing this?

I don't know if it matters but my car is equipped with keyless-go. Anyways, I think it is common on this car or any S-Class, but there are two buttons underneath the lip on the back of the trunk/above the license plate. The button that opens the trunk doesn't usually work. I will push it once and it will A) open fully B)open partially and I will have to push the button once more or C)it will open 1cm, push it again and it will open to 1in, push it a third time and it will open fully or D)it will open 1cm, push it again and it opens to 1in, push it again it opens 2in, push it a fourth time and it opens all the way. I have a problem with all of the buttons on my door handles as far as they don't work correctly either. Is this just an overall issue with my keyless-go system or is it something else?

Since I have had my car (100,128mi and currently at 113,800mi) the lights behind the door handles on the passenger side of the car do not work. All other lighting such as behind the passenger door handles as well as the foot wells work. I did research a while back but forgot what I read but I was sure this meant there was a larger underlying issue. Any similar stories or know what may be going on other than "replace the bulbs, take it to the shop"?

over but shuts down in drive ,could it be the fuel injection

I saw a post where DanD answered:
I just went through this with another 1996 Mercedes. I am a Calif. Smog Tech that works at a Gold Shield Station ( means that the State sends us cars that other shops have struck out on ). The Mercedes had several problems. The dealer did, in SF did not even know how to work on the problem The car was broken/malfunctioning for 4 years. What I found is that there is a separate computer that only does the OBD-II monitors. It is called the Diagnostic Monitor or module.The Dealer does not even know where it is in the car because I called several, all over the US, they think it is built in to the main Engine Computer. IT IS NOT!!. The computer is usually in the Engine Fuse Compartment by the round Mercedes Diagnostic Connector. It may even say CARB on it. California Air Resources Board which mandated its existence. The Factory did not even know about it. I had to get it from a special German parts person and it was a used one to boot. However, this definitely fixed the problem. Let me know about this because there are several things to check before putting in this computer, like do you automatic door locks work OK? I will explain why this is so important later. -

Can Dan provide more info as to where is the CARB module and what could be preventing the IM Monitors from setting to Complete?

Thank you,


Engine will still be running while this is happening. All needles on the dash will fall completely to the left and all lights will come on at the bottom of the dash. The transmission will remain in the same gear while this failure is happening, No downshifting or upshifting. The car will not crank if it is shut off while this failure is happening, but it will crank and run fine once you let it set for about an hour. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

were to find mechanic to fix this problem?

I can adjust the temperature, but cannot control the blower at all.

When car was initially started no lights. Turned car off and on service engine light came on? Car cam from Cali I am in Midwest in Dec. I noticed as was mentioned by another member that temp stay around 80 but when I get into traffic, closer to 95-100. Another odd thing, took through car wash and engine died. Once I got through wash started car and turned right over? Not sure what is going on. any insight would be greatly appreciated. Car is an 02 S600 with 67k miles.

do I check the module also

I have bought a Mercedes-Benz model 2009 size S600

Full specifications are 120000 km

The first problem is that lime was awagha status S sport for about a month and I walked it at high speed after a positive was converted to C and reduced sound engine, but requesta voice with the voice of the limes like Craig and, after being examined at one of the garages hydraulic front ball was replaced before power and after this tromba eased a little sound on the same day you purchase Super Titan engine oil 10000 kilometers with genuine oil filter and oil cans were 10 boxes and after swapping the engine oil with a simple random I have a nudge with the following screen ENGINE OIL LEVEL


Also, the time and the map does not work and at work is but not set to local time, and after several attempts with some local garages they told me that these cars, especially Japanese must change the player to type specifications and this costs nearly 300 dinars if any and also there is the rear air conditioner does not work and said the likelihood of the fan and the possibility of control. Please advise and thanks.
