It would be a worthwhile investment as it does many other cars too. This failure stranded my wife in another city and should be considered a safety defect. Correction: Mbusa will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air bag control unit and replace it, as necessary, free of charge. The damage would have been repairable until my car caught on fire. This will then have to be reset with the dealer tool.

The sell you these dam expensive as cars and you mean to tell me that they can't get the parts in to fix them? Once you have cleared a lifetime of crumbs, grit and debris, give it a good dose of switch cleaner, operating the clasp with the buckle between times. My dealer is 50 miles away from where I live and cant see it would be legal to drive this distance for a repair! If it was not a coincidence when passenger got in it may be to do with passenger side seat belt ''connections''. Chances are the two problems are not related at all. More often than not if the issue is with the internal switch its with debris preventing it operating correctly more so than a contact fault within the microswitch.
Just image the car stops immediately at the middle of highway. The electrician had access to Autodata so we could see the wiring schematics which really helped to make sure no random control units were in play half way along a loom. Read that post a couple of times and give it a go. This should give you some vital clues as throwing parts and labour at the job without this is really financial suicide! It is common on early W210 models to suffer with this problem. Grab a torch and have a good look — and smell around and see if you can spot anything. Its a long shot, but it could be this — as the spring rotation would stutter on a turn and make a sort of clunk or in some cases a low boing sound when turning the steering even stationary.
If you have access to developer mode on xentry then you may be able to configure it and save the day. Failed unit was replaced with remanufactured unit 1-204-900-59-12-80. Inoperative see owner's manual appeared on the dashboard and the car started loosing power. Was the wiring disturbed or had its routing been disturbed, ties cut etc. See also: To open the tailgate: pull the handle on the tailgate.
May 22, 2013 I wouldn't think catalytic converter, without it giving some indication that it was going bad, but without testing it is hard to say. There are 3 wires to connect, colour for colour those that exist under the seat Brown, White and Red on the yellow connector. The cause: We think the main short was on a sub loom that goes to the instrument cluster back to the 28 pin connector on the fuse board. Is there any additive like power steering refresh I can put in before changing the green stuff and maybe use a 3 micron inline fuel filter on the return line as a pre filter filter made of metal would be easy to use the magnets. I was very afraid during this return trip and was happy I was less than an hour from home. In addition, the front driver side seat belt retracted while there was a passenger in the seat. On further investigation by a mechanic is was found that the error code was 9B51 which mean that the front left seat belt buckle needs to be replaced.
I would explain this to the service manager politley and calmly, putting a valid case over and see how he reacts. Could you give me a little direction from here? Hi there Raj, Well from reading that I would sadly deduce that the seat belt stalk probably genuinely went faulty. No recourse after contacting south bay mercedes-benz. Hope this helps Steve Dear Steve, I am in Brazil and I have a 2009 B200 turbo W245. Many complaints and hundreds of similar failures on this and c class models on internet. Wait for a period of at least 60 seconds until the necessary system checks have been completed and to make sure that the display messages do not appear in the multifunction display.
I tried to find out information like this and its a little sketchy and hard to place so maybe its of some use in your fault finding, diagnostics and resulting repair. We believe when the Mercedes mechanic was looking for the issue he took the other end of the wire with the little plug, so we are minus that anyway, unless it dropped down way under the seat. I think I have 3 plugs, 2 yellow and one brown, feeding the seat occupancy pad, the seat belt catch and the electric seat adjustment mechanisms, respectively. I would rather not have to hack the double seat up to take out the pretensioner… Any advice would be much appreciated, I have been having a nightmare trying to find the resistor rating required on the internet. Also to answer your question about a lockout relay-yes there is but they rarely cause a problem. The clasp is glued together, the switch is inside so that pretty much scuppers any dismantling and cleaning.
I was very afraid during this return trip and was happy I was less than an hour from home. If your car is a pre face lift, with a non auto detect child seat, then the seat pad matrix can be simply linked out on the yellow connector under the seat. There is a chance that as this is hard wired, it does not flag a fault on the controller This was the case on older E124 anyway! When this service took place, I was informed that I need to have my transfer case resealed and the cam shaft magnets replaced. The wheels could therefore lock if you brake hard, for example.

And immediately called the dealership to discuss a monetary refund and was told that I must wait for a second letter before they could issue or discuss a refund for the replacement repair I paid for. Late May 16 I received another recall letter from mbusa referring me back to the dealer.
Best Regards Steve Hi Steve, Thanks for the info. We took it to a Mercedes dealer they said the seatbelt wire was installed improperly and the wire was cut when the drivers seat was pulled forward or backward. Best regards, Ed Hi Ed, First I would be looking to see if the part numbers were the same as the unit removed. Electronic Stability Control problem 1 Takata recall: good car into south bay mercedes for srs replacement as instructed on recall letter. I would get a good second opinion before starting work.
