The problem is fixed...by me and not the FOUR different Mercedes shops that
missed it. So much for the paid professional.
The car had elect. problems....dead battery, low battery, no start, entire
car going dark (stalling) during driving....no charging lite would come on,
but the belt tensioner was at fault, maintaining just enough drag to keep
the alternater lite off, but not enough to put enough juice into the
battery. I changed the belt and tensioner and this car has run flawlessly
for the past 9 months...
Gee, I wonder why a 'dope' said "fix the problem" when this is the FIRST
inkling of information
about your problem??
Go back and read your previous post that said "How do I turn off Check Engine
Hmmmm...... nothing there but the subject!!!!
Hey dickwad, yah got your money's worth out of the question. Don't like the
answers? Too bad, no
refunds. You got a lot of useless comments for zip zero nada info. Go back to
the FOUR Mercedes
shops, THEY owe you. Not a free usenet newsgroup.
,,,,,,, and you actually expected answers re what your problem was when
your were not specific whatsoever about your problem .... note, the 'check
engine light' being 'on' was _NOT_ your problem .... geeesh, takes all kinds
out there .... flame suit on :-)
ps happy to see you identified the 'problem' and fixed it. Do note that
electrical woes, especially marginal ones, are difficult to diagnose 'on
the spot' by anyone - even trained MB techs.
