I have a Vito Sport 2007. Left interior light on which ran the battery flat over night. I got a jump start of a mate. We connected his Astra van to my van via the battery under the seat. My van started straight away but since then the mileage counter ( used to read 140000 or just over ) has just black lines running through it and it's also reads KM only. Also the break warning light is always on. Breaks are fine - all breaks were serviced last week. Can anyone help. Can I reset it my self ?

Hi, I have a confusing headlight fault. The dipped lights do not work but the drivers side fog lamp is illuminated all though the fog light switch is turned off or disconnected totally. The main stalk switch seems to be ok as the fuses are showing a live current at the correct times (side, dip and main) I tried to power up the dip bulbs from the fuse box with no luck . I have continuity through the connection blocks at the headlights. Any ideas would be gratefully received! Thanks

Jim Hammond, Surrey

Mercedes-Benz Vito

Hi there, I am wondering if you could help me. I have a 58 plate Transit with 237,000 miles on it. It's turning out to be a money pit now. I am looking to get a newer van. Either a Vito Dualiner or a T5 Transporter. Problem is I don't know which one. I am reading different reviews on line and going by what friends say. As far as I can make out a V/ Dub is all about the name. "Buying into a club" I have around £15,000 to spend. But with the VW, on many sites seems to be the more fancy the paint, Higher the mileage, higher the price. Also Cruise control and A/C aren't standard like the Vito. I want an Auto box, too which the transporter is more rarer. Vito wise they seem to have all the gizmos I want and what my Transit already has, but the reviews on here are a mixed bag. At the end of the day, It's my decision but a bit of advice to help me get there would be wonderful. Many thanks. Jim.

i have just bought the new Vito sport 119 bluetec and there is a noise coming from the engine when accelerating - it sounds like an air release or something. I have had it back to the dealer who told me this was normal but i am not convinced? They told me it was like a dump valve but someone else has told me that is a lot of nonsense. Any help or info would be welcome. It is a 65 plate, brand new van and i am already wanting rid of it, not the Mercedes Benz experience i was hoping for

Mercedes-Benz Vito

Hi my passenger side rear electric sliding door has stopped operating on my mercedes vito London kpm taxi. There is absolutely no power to it,not even from the operating button on my dashboard. I can only presume it would be simple case of changing a fuse but unfortunately I can not locate where the fuse is. I've checked in the engine where the fuses and relays are and they all seem fine. Normally the fuses are under the drivers seat,not in my case. Could you please tell me where I can locate the fuse. Driver side rear sliding is working fine.

Mercedes-Benz Vito

Hello Whilst driving my Vito taxi about today i noticed a sudden drop in acceleration performance half way through the day. In short the vito has lost all instant acceleration and only increase's speed at a very slow rate. When going uphill if i try to kick down the pedal it does nothing. When driving along the motorway at say 50mph i can put the pedal to the floor and little happens. Only when it starts to pick up speed can i push the pedal a little further and it picks up a little more speed but asking for instant acceleration results in nothing! Its drivable but unresponsive. Any info would be much appreciated.

Hi terry thanks for that I have a look at the weekend. See if I can see anything thanks again Ron ron from East Sussex

This has happened to me a few times... I found that when this is happening pullover straight away turn the car off take the key out then lock the central locking let the car sit for a few minutes to totally shut down..( Don't move while your sitting there or the interior movement sensor will set off the alarm..) Then unlock the the vehicle and start as normal.. This seems to fix the problem for me 100% of the time... I presume it is an electrical fault somewhere along the line so it resets the ECU and it runs as it should ... I just Havnt gone into it deep enough to find the exact fault .. Hope this helps Justin from Australia
