MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito 639 ignition system failure - have I been robbed

I recently had a total failure of the ignition system on my vito 115. Jumped out of the van to post a parcel and when I got back in the key fob would not activate the steering lock or turn. On further investigation it didnt unlock the vehicle either. I put a new battery in bu that didnt help. Given where the vehicle was and the fact I was trying to get to the airport for my honeymoon I had to get it

Would the new key have been coded to the new ignition system you had installed or was it a direct replacement of the key you already had. They should be coded. My spare key is very erratic it wont let me turn the wipers on and the speedo doesnt work. Its weird. It lets me drive it but only for so long. Because my main key has always worked fine I never got it replaced. Apparently its coding problems with the key. I take it you didnt try the spare key

I put a new battery in bu that didnt help. Given where the vehicle was and the fact I was trying to get to the airport for my honeymoon I had to get it towed to the MB main dealer. They ran diagnostics on it decided the ignition pickuplock assembly behind the dash was faulty then replaced it (at massive expense). This didnt work so they then ordered a new key from MB germany which did work. They charged me for everything (which was a lot) and as I needed the van to move house I didnt have much choice. On speaking to the technician who carried out the work he seemed pretty genuine in that they had never seen a fault like this and apparently had to go direct to MB technical UK. The question is would a new key fob alone have sorted this and the dealer mis-diagnosed - has anyone heard of this happening before or are they being poor technicians I see it everyday but sometimes it can be the EZS although In my opinoin its always cheaper to do the Least expensive thing in the first place which is the key.. This is suprising as mercedes usually order a new key first Do you still have the old parts Mark

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Chipping a Vito 113

Hi I have found several companies who say they are able to chip a 113 but I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who has actually done this If anyone has have you noticed much difference Regards benz Bling

Sorry for this late response Ive not visited in awhile. The C-class 111. is same block and heads with a different intake system design and totally different ECU. The engine bay of the 113 wont allow for the space and plumbing of the supercharger. If you really want to free up more power albeit in baby steps Id suggest starting with the basics 1) Reduce friction throughout the entire drivetrain beginning

The engine bay of the 113 wont allow for the space and plumbing of the supercharger. If you really want to free up more power albeit in baby steps Id suggest starting with the basics 1) Reduce friction throughout the entire drivetrain beginning with the wheel bearings through to the gearbox and on to the engine lubrication. (111. engines have very high friction in the valvetrain). Hint Search for boron nitride - based oil additives for the engine molybdenum-disulphide based grease for bearings. Be careful with the manual gearbox though your base fluid must be ATF4 and any additive you use should not consist of solid particulates. 2) Fit good iridium spark plugs and Index them - the latter is an old but proven tuning trick to even out the ignition spark across all four cylinders by aligning the plug gaps all in the same direction. You may need some trial and error to work out the optimum angle. 3) Consider fitting a high flow cat and exhaust system. Dont overdo it with the pipe diameter though and never get rid of the cat as itll screw up your ECU. 4) Make sure your oxygen sensor is in good shape. A lot of power and economy is lost through a faulty o2 sensor. 5) Always use good fuel. I favor Chevron but thats just me. The above are just pointers. Youd still need to hunt down the details - but isnt that half the fun Hi Leongster Thanks for all that info. I have started to modify a few things I have had a throttle body dressing fitted an Ecotek CB-26P replaced the standard air filter for a K&N and had a stainless steel Powerflow performance exhaust. It does seem to have made quite a bit of difference to low down performance which is where I thought it was lacking. I have an automatic gearbox in my vito and it now seems to kick down a little quicker which is good for overtaking and when going up hill. Someone else has suggested getting some iridium spark plugs but I didnt know if it would make much difference. Now you have suggested it too I might look into it further. As for the fuel I always use Shell no supermarket rubbish in my ride I live in England and I dont think we get Chevron over here. benz Bling

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 280SL K-Jet and Ignition conversion to Megasquirt write up

This write-up will describe how I changed the old Bosch K-Jet fuel system on my 280SL -85 to a modern EFI-system and it will probably also work on the older Bosch D-Jet system. I will try to cover as much as possible regarding our engines when it comes to different options and installations but in the end anyone planning to build and installing a MegaSquirt EFI system will require that you do some

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito 108 SWB 2.1 diesel (w639) not startingunlocking when cold.

Hi I am new to the forum and have only had my vito van for 5 months like most wanted a VW but could not afford one. Everything has been fine with the van until the first time the temp dropped below 5c then things start to go down hill. Firstly neither key fob would open the van so I changed the batteries in both still no luck so had to revert to using manual key on ns front door which then would activate

Funny you saying that I called out recovery to have a look as I needed to know for Monday he got the van going by inserting key fob into ignition several times the system then unlocked. He had been speaking to someone on his technical team and they informed him MB has a recall out on some vito ignitions systems (EZS). Suggested I give them a call to see if my van is included (fingers cross).

The 111 engine in the SLKCLK C class is the same engine block but a differnet ignition system so it will bolt on it just a matter of whether there is enough room on the BM638 vito to fit the supercharger and whether the back engine mounting is in the way

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito central locking nightmare

My vito van 110 cdi x reg central locking s driving me mad. the front doors seem ok but the rears are never in sync the drivers side side door is the worst. quite often I cant lock the van. I can hear the van locking then unlocking it is driving me mad help please

the actuator sequence for a 638 from experience... if you get a problem get close to the vehicle and operate single and double clicks repeatedly.... the system seems to get stuck in its memory of what its done...... if you also operate the dash switch with the ignition off or at position 2 as well as using the keyfob it will get lost partway through its cycles (bloody silly vitos) I tried a 116 the

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito Start Error

Hi I hope somebody can help My 2000 108 vitos battery ran flat and when i charged it the display on the dash says START ERROR Very Annoying Also the van doesnt have a remote key fob just the standard key. Ive been told that this has to be rectified by the main dealer Being miles away and a ferry crossing this is totally out of the question... If anyone has any suggestions or has had a similar problem i would be very grateful... Thanks

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito V plate Cold Air Blows Until Thermostat Opens..

Hi people. I have a vito 112 on a v plate which blows cold air most of the time. I had the thermostat replaced as i presumed that this was stuck open but no difference. I™ve since noticed that i only get heat when the thermostat kicks inopens and the engine temperature drops. The heater starts working but the matrix cools down soon after presumably when the stat closes again. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated as its just too cold and icy Thanks in advanced.

Well Im sorry but you are wrong. I have owned V-Class mercedes for the past 11 years and the air suspension is very unreliable. Yes it may be repairable but there is always an uncertainty as to whether it will work every time you switch the ignition on I think what you meant to say here is that in your opinion im wrong. In my opinion i am correct. See i had a problem with my air suspension this time

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Break Out Box and Carsoft 7.4

Re. Year 2000 430CLK Cabriolet. I need a bit of info re. the breakout box but first Question 1 when I have the ingition key in position 1 the module in my interface wont connect. When I have the ignition key in postion 2 the module connects but I hear some component in the engine compartment running. Its a buzz.

You will need the cable going from the m-plexer to the 38 pin socket and of course the serial from the laptop to the m-plexer. You will not need you present MB interface as this is in fact only a dumb m-plexer. You have to make sure the m-plexer is compatible with Carsoft 7.4. Here is a little list of what you can do with the Carsoft 7.4 and a compatible multiplexer (this list is from the one Ive got

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Can you see whats missing in this picture...

Can you see whats missing.... Yes its the distributor. Removed the distributor since its not used anymore the megasquirt controlled ignition works perfect and when I mesured the milage oddly enough the fuel consumption has decreased 10-15% Full tank and drove 200km (125miles) filled the car up again and could only fill 20L. Maby a short trip but its a good sign since I havent really tuned the ignition-table yet.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. But tell me Djenka018 why I need 2 more cylinders when I got the same performance with 6 (just kidding)... I understand that it™s interesting to know what it all costs and what challenges there are I bought almost everything directly from DIYAutoTune.com Megasquirt Kits Assembled Engine Management systems Wideband o2 Sensor systems and tuning products but many people

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Fitting a leisure battery

Has any one done this at all i have a leisure battery and a relay and all wires and fuses but cant figure out which is the alternator feed to the battery Any advice would be helpfull Cheers Pete

Hi Id be wary of using connecting anything to the alternator feed...if you can find it. Apparantly more modern vehicles monitor this feed and it can create electrical probs if it senses any unusual activity. It wouldnt surprise me if the vito uses this system and you really dont want electricalelectronic problems with these fellas The modern solution is to use a Voltage Sensative Relay (VSR) instead

But I have never met a man alive who could help but smile when it is explained that the M111 engine in my vito is also used in several sportscars and that some of these sportscars are supercharged and produce about 200bhp. I very much intend that my vito acquires one of these engines. Several people have placed posts in this forum asking if supercharging
