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

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 Thats just a fault with the key.. I can fix that. Quote 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 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

Hi Dave Was it about resetting your SRS light In 25062011 I have looked through the emails and cant see any more correspondence apart from that If it was for a key for your vito then as you in Southampton its kind of pointless for me as the dealer is the same price so I cannot
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

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
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).

There are people on eBay who will make these for you of virtually any sizeID (probably with CAD and a waterjet). For my future project I bought one which I HOPE I can develop the skills to weld to the original V-8 pulley. Some V-8 pulleys

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
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

The chassis number is underneath the plastic cover on the passenger (or driver) step. Your toe will hit the cover as you get in. I do not know of another plate 2. Yup just as matelot says and one lock should operate all locks. 3. a) Matelot refers to a possible pump. Hes right. If the
Flat Battery and Charged Viano (05) - go the dreaded start error. Had breakdown service to check fuses. No joy. Exactly as described - turn on ignition- all OK until start then Start Error. rang Stealer and described problem - told if its not fuses then looking at new ECU etc (Could be between 800 and 1200 depending on what needs replacing). Told the same that this was the immobiliser dying caused
Hi to refill the water system turn you ignition on fan speed on 3 heater on max fill expansion botttle to the brill till air stops bubbling out now squeeze all water pipes a few times more air should bubble out no start the engine top up if need be hold the revs at 2000 rpm for say 30 sec works every time for me.
yes they have a vacuum system check under the bonnet aswell as the vacuum pump is there.on mine the tube on the ignition had split
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
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
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
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
Thanks TTTT Yeah mine is showing the solid block all the time. I would like to see the circuit diagram for the key ignition circuits as ther seems to be a little conflicting information out there. Some have been saying that 1. The Key has 2 independant circuits. a. the Remote control ( doors boot etc) which runs off the battery and is a RF signal b. the Start encoder which does not require the battery
Here™s the results. The software was easy to install with clear instructions. Plug the laptop-module-van all together. Set the interface selection to OBD turn the ignition key to position 2 and start the general digital test. It came up with the following (up to the line). The modules with an X in front I definitely haven™t. I™ve got ABS but its supposedly not responding. The modules with an in front

Got a few issues with my v230 susspension. Not been able to source a manual yet so was wanting to pick your brain with an issue i have regards my rear susspension. The rear left is aprox 2-3 inches lower than the right. What could the problem be and can you suggest some ways to fault find the system. I was thinking about swapping over the airlines (yellow and blue) to see if it was the compressor but
