  • From Harry Walker on Unusual Intermittent Electrical Power Problems Mercedes Sprinter

    Hi Steve,

    The LED backlight on the odometer does not shut off after the vehicle is turned off. This (I think) has been causing the battery to drain when the van has been sitting for extended periods of time.

    Any advice on how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    – Harry

      Hi Harry, could be the ignition switch is faulty allowing current to pass to aux circuits when in off position or a door closure switch not making – this means the vehicle thinks a door is open and illuminates the odometer. You should be able to open a door and the milage display illuminates.

    Great info and thread 🙂

  • From Eoghan Barry on Adjusting the (W639) Mercedes Vito Reverse Lamp Switch

    Just got the lights working again.
    Have my van in for test in five days.
    Rear lights not working are a fail.
    1 garage told me the switch was on the gear box and must be corroded.
    Another that they could not work out what was happening as it was coming on and off.
    Thanks Pete.

  • From Chris Guy on Mercedes Vito W639 Front Road Spring Replacement

    absolutely great information, did just as you said, spring from ECP, used a freinds floor mounted changer to swop it took about 5 hours to do including going for the spring. Thanks for the info.

    Worth mentioning that when tightening back the new oil cooler, the bolts don’t need to be super tight because your screwing into aluminum. I recently did this and easily stripped 2 bolt holes like an idiot. I wish I had known I was screwing into aluminum

    Great explanation, does this apply to the 518 as well?
    Thank you

  • From Daniel Broomes on Unusual Intermittent Electrical Power Problems Mercedes Sprinter

    Hi Steve

    I have a 2005 sprinter 311. The temp gauge just dropped down to zero then it jump back up and down. I have changed the temperature sensor and the thermostat and still the same problem. Do you think the fuse box can be my problem?

    Thanks

      Hi Daniel,
      It could be a short in the wiring or a broken conductor near the plug to the temp sensor on the stat housing. Have a close look in that area.

  • From Ian Erickson on Unusual Intermittent Electrical Power Problems Mercedes Sprinter

    This is awesome Steve, thank you. I’m hoping it’s the source of my intermittent starting issues and occasional stalling while enroute in 2005 T1N. Do you have any suggestions for means of cleaning everything? Vinegar? Brass wheel on Dremel tool? Very much appreciated.

    Thankyou most helpful 😀

  • From Craig on P0410 Secondary Air Injection Fix - Mercedes S Class W220

    Best write up on this system I have ever seen. Even Mercedes service information is not this informative and put down in such a matter of fact, understandable way. I have repaired multiple S Class W220 sec air sys problems where the pump replacement and relay have done the job. But this last time everything seemed to work and still had p0410 coming back. Found that orange maxi fuse blown. Never had a problem with that on other cars so never even knew to check it. Problem solved thanks to you.
