riaan, South Africa

Mercedes-Benz Vito

Where is the oil pressure sensor on 646 982 2.1 engine? After the vehicle was started, 10 to 15 seconds later the oil light came. The diagnosis was made ??on the vehicle with a G-Scan. The following error codes showed: 2014, 2040, 2041 and 2062. Checked the oil level and it was on the full mark. How can I fix the oil pressure and level problem?

Answers

Hi Riaan. The level problem might be the in sump level censor, unscrewed and removable from below on the sump. Not sur about the oil pressure censor location, but will try and find out about that. Where are u situated in SA? Martin Martin Schoeman from South Africa

Mercedes-Benz Vito

I have a 05 plate mercedes Vito 111CDI long wheel base, the van cuts out but i am able to restart the van within seconds, it will then cut out again this can happen upto 5 times but when she finally starts running i have no issues until i stop or slow down at roundabouts. seems to be whilst pulling away but does happen also at speed. This may happen every trip or i may get 4 unevental journeys with no issues and then back to cutting out, it was run on a diagnostic machine but nothing highlighted, perhaps it was the garage not being a main dealearship? Any one any ideas? Regards Paul

Answer this question

Deon, South Africa

Mercedes-Benz Vito

I have two problems with my Mercedes-Benz Vito and they both started recently, one after the other. Firstly the driver`s side door does not lock with the rest of the doors when I press either the key remote or the door lock button in the van. Also the driver`s side power window seems to have lost its limit settings. The window will close when you lift the button but as soon as it hits the top of the door it drops back down to halfway. You can eventually get it to close if you hold the button up for a few seconds after it closes, but usually only on the second or third try. Any ideas?

Answers

Hi Your first problem is the motor for the drivers side central locking has stopped working, you will need to replace the lock and motor as it comes as one It does however mean removing the door trim and some fiddling about to get it out, when they fail they do not lock as a safety way of not locking yourself out of the van Your second problem is easy, spray silicone lube on the window rubbers where the window runs, sounds strange but trust me it's the answer Mark from Cambridgeshire

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2005

Hi everyone, I need some advice. My Mercedes-Benz Vito is in limp mode. I`ve just had the top done and CAN cabling repaired as well as the crank sensor replaced, turbo is still good, I put in new injectors and filters but it`s still not going as it used to. As far as I remember the turbo used to kick in at 1900 rpm, now you only feel it lightly at around 3000 rpm. I had it on the workshop pc and there are no faults. Does anyone have a clue to where to spend more hard earned cash to rectify this problem? Thanks. (115 cdi)

Answers

Hi Gian, did you find the problem with your Vito? I ask as I seem to have the exact same fault with my 2010 109 Vito. It starts and drives fine with no smoke or mis fires etc but it feels like there is no turbo boost at all, most certainly at low revs. The turbo is fine as are all of the pipe work. Also there are no faults present or stored in the ECU. It is strange that it was perfectly fine one day and then not the next. Vince from Durham

I've had the same with my 2006 115 auto. Took it to a specialist who said it was to do with the dpf. So he have me a bottle of off the shelf fuel additive, I think it was made by wynns called dpf clean or something like that. As advised I then took it for an hour on the motorway and it's been problem free ever since. Apparently once the dpf's get clogged to a certain extent from lots of town work etc, they can cause the vehicle to go into limp Mode. This dpf fuel additive and an hour on the motorway seems enough to clean it Alex from Lancashire

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2003

My Mercedes-Benz Vito van starts very easy when cold, as soon as the engine is warm it struggles to start, but the engine is turning . It takes some time and eventually the vehicle starts, but sometimes it does not start at all and then I have to wait until the engine is cooled off. I took the the vehicle to Mercedes Benz to solve this problem but I drove it for a few days and the problem starts again. A lot of possibilities were looked at. Replace diesel pump, replace glow plugs, replace camsaft sensor, carry out engine test, test fuel pressure and leakage, remove intake manifold and high pressure fuel pump, replace all diesel pipes, but still I have the same problem. I am really frustrated now. This vehicle has been three times at Mercedes Benz . It`s cost me a lot of money but the main problem can’t be solved - hard starting when the engine is warm. Please dies anybody have any advice to assist me with this problem? Thank you.
