Mercedes-Benz Vito

Hi my passenger side rear electric sliding door has stopped operating on my mercedes vito London kpm taxi. There is absolutely no power to it,not even from the operating button on my dashboard. I can only presume it would be simple case of changing a fuse but unfortunately I can not locate where the fuse is. I've checked in the engine where the fuses and relays are and they all seem fine. Normally the fuses are under the drivers seat,not in my case. Could you please tell me where I can locate the fuse. Driver side rear sliding is working fine.

Answers

I have got exactly the same problem can't find the fuses, if you do find out please do share it with me thanks muhammad from Middlesex

I have the same problem i found the fuses changed them still not working. But anyway the fuses are in the main fuse box in the engine compartment,of the two smaller fuse panels in the box at the front the one on right hand side has three 30amp fuses together. The two on the right are for the doors. hope this solves the problem. gary gary from Kent

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2002

My Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van won`t start in really cold weather. I changed the fuel pump and new seal kit on common rail, tried new camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor. When the weather is warm it starts okay as normal but it wouldn`t start this morning in the cold, but it ran off quite easy. That`s why I tried the crankshaft sensor but with no result. Can anyone advise me please? Thanks.

Answers

I think it’s a cold starting problem from what u have described, remove the glow plugs and replace them Mr Kai Patel from Northern Ireland

Have you tested your injector for leak off? If one is leaking the rail pressure won’t get up enough and in effect there is no fuel pressure to crack the injectors. It’s a dead easy test, takes about 30 mins. Take off the leak off pipes on the top of each injector push short lenghts of tube over into seperate tin cans. Start the engine, they may all have some leak of ie fuel into the cans but you may see one pouring out then thats the one to change! Once they start to go they all need doing but you can change one at a time. Get the engine hot and they come out quite easy Max from England

Hi mate. Check the low fuel pressure circuit and be sure the fuel supply hose between the plastic pipe and fuel filter is undamaged inside. Also the bleeding bun is replaced and not reused. Also if you see air bubbles in the plastic pipe of the middle line on top of the fuel filter when wriggling the water seperator underneath the filter, then replace the o-ring for the seperater. Be sure all connectors (to replace the o-rings)high pressure, pre delivery pump, fuel filter and 1x return at commen rail. Oliver Maksuti from Australia

After driving slowly i.e., 20-35 mph for 15-30 minutes in bumper to bumper traffic, 1st on an Interstate high speed hwy, then one week later in rainy whether on a very busy city street, my 2003 CL500 would not accelerate, when the traffic congestion cleared. I was only able to drive at the same slow speed as during the 15-30 minutes of slow driving. I took the car to my mechanic and he could not replicate the problem nor did any issue show up when he ran a diagnostic on his high tech equip. The mechanic found no problem. Other than the above problem, it typically drive like new and has less than 46,000 miles. However, I am reluctant to drive the car any significant distance from home, i.e., 5-10, since the above problem may occur again and I may not be as fortunate in avoiding an accident as I was the previous two time. Any thoughts as to what may have cause the failure to accelerate problem. My mechanic tells me that no other mechanic will be able to diagnose the problem not even the dealership's mechanic.

Fumes are coming into the cabin of my Mercedes Benz sprinter 313 long wheel base 2012 model. How do l solve it? What is the cause of it? I cleared the exhaust. Changed the gasket but the problem is still there. Please how do I solve the problem?

Answers

Hello, Do these fumes enter the cabin when you turn on the heater fan? If you open the bonnet when the engine is running, listen for a chuffing sound. If yes to these, then it sounds like you have the black death - your injector seals are worn. If you're mechanically minded it is a reasonable job to do, if not, then I'm afraid you will need to take it to a garage to have the new seals fitted. Hope you get it sorted.

Hi me again another problem after I put fuel when ever i will stop they will be a white smoke that will coming from the exhaust if you wait for three or so minutes it will clear again or if you switch the engine of and start it again what can be the problem? 518 sprinter.

Answers

Can be condensation coming out the back from a cold running engine so is thermostat OK? Are you losing water, any signs of leaks? White smoke can mean presence of water but can also mean fuel vapour from incomplete combustion, either sticking injectors or faulty EGR valve can cause this but can't be sure without seeing vehicle.

Hi Andy, It is easy to gain entry to your vehicle., by using the emergancy key within the fob. which is the metal part that attaches to your key ring, Theres a little slide on the top next to it, slide it and at the same time pull the key out. I got that far but my battery is so dead that there is no response when I insert the key/fob into the ignition(left the interior light on for months) I've tried a jump start kit on it but still nothing,going to try jumping from a car now then probably take out the battery and plug into a charger or possibly replacement not sure about the "slave battery"as far as I know I have only one .and it controls everything.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

I have a 2008 Sprinter. It has had new injectors, new rail, new sensors, new PDF, new ECU, new airbag and module for indicators on steering wheel. My van will not start unless towed or bumped. The compression has been checked, that's good, the fuel pumps have been checked, good. I have spent a small fortune. Still no joy. It shows no faults on diagnostics now. Does anyone have any ideas???? PLEASE

Answers

Does your starter turn the engine over fast enough? Fuel delivery will not commence unless the engine is being cranked over at least 250 rpm. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Yes. The starter was replaced. I'm having the electrics checked. Billy from Antrim

Further to Hugh's information, have you tried fitting a new battery? Mick from Portugal

Yes to the battery, we put 3 separate new batteries in to test and be sure. This problem has us busted. Billy from Antrim

I'm scratching, glow plugs maybe? Trying to think it through, you say it starts with a tow or a bump start, does it start if you use a jumper pack or jumper cables? Mick from Portugal

It won't start on jump, or boost or new battery. It's going to auto spark. It starts on tow. Billy from Antrim

I'm only guessing here but try this. Turn on ignition but don't try to start the vehicle, using booster cables to 'hard start' the starter motor (or use a remote starter switch if you have access to one). If it starts the fault is with the ignition switch (internal contacts worn and losing 'ignition' when turned to start position). If that doesn't work check the wiring loom for worn insulation, especially where the loom is mounted close to the engine (the ignition feed could be shorting out). Both are unusual but not unheard of, and when all else fails look for the unusual. Mick from Portugal

Thanks Mick from Portugal. We tried. Today we changed crank sensor and she started. Although reluctantly . So we are concentrating on that Billy from Antrim

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Hi guys, I've got 2 problems with my 2003 left hand drive Mercedes Benz Sprinter 316 Cdi and would like some help/advice as to what is causing the problem. 1. I've noticed a small hose that is connected from the top of the engine to the big hose that connects to the turbo had been removed and a bolt put there instead. I removed the bolt and put the hose back and the engine sound was not smooth but as soon as I put the bolt back, the sound was all fine. 2. There is a noise underneath the van but when I press the clutch pedal down it stops and comes back when I take my foot off the pedal..... May I please know if, anyone had encountered these problems and how they solved it. Kind regards Benjamin

Answers

The small hose from the top of the engine is for the closed crankcase ventilation (CCV) system. It connects with the turbo inlet so that the engine breathes its own fumes. If your engine is worn you may be getting a lot of oil mist and fumes down this pipe and then being drawn into the intake. Fit a catch can to help improve things. The noise which goes away when you press the clutch pedal sounds as if it is the primary shaft bearing which rotates when the clutch pedal is let out and stops rotating when you press the clutch in. They can run like that for years but you should check the gearbox oil level. Or it may be the dual mass flywheel which is more of a rattle and clunk noise. Hugh from City of Glasgow
