Help...... I gave a friend of mine a jump start from the terminal in the fuse box and on body,all went well until I tried to start the next morning.I have a dual battery setup for camping fridge. both batteries seem to have lost voltage,and the fan which seems to be in the fuse box runs for a time after the engine has been turned off?A short charge with a very small battery charger got the voltage up to start.Drove around, next day and same thing. Is there a plug in part that i need purchase, or is it gonna be the expensive unknown look inside the cdi electro box and there go's ones holiday entertainment budget repair jobs. Any idea's .thanks.

Hi i have a Vito 112 that cuts out and immediately the cooling fan comes on, once this happens the car wont start. sometimes this lasts for seconds and minutes and sometimes it lasts for days. The minute the fan stops running the car will start again. the glow plug light goes dead if this happens. Diagnostics does not show any fault.

Hi i have a Vito 112, 2003 model the car al of a sudden just started to cut out, but just for seconds, and then the cooling fan comes on, but the second the fan stops running it starts again. the intervals became longer and longer. Then you leave it overnight and it repeats the same fault. diagnostics shows no fault. If the fault is on one cannot access the ECU to diagnose. What can cause this.

Mercedes-Benz Vito

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.

terry, Essex

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.

S&B Mercedes found a plastic cable tie had cut into my accelerator cable! i think thats what he said.. They replaced the whole cable and its as new hope this helps terry from Essex

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

Ted Wolfenden, Swansea

Mercedes-Benz Vito

I have had a flat battery happened on a number of days lately. The main trouble is having gone down with a nasty bug myself the Dog Van has only been getting a couple of short runs over the last two weeks. This morning whilst Jump starting it I noticed with everything turned off there was a fan running under the fuse box in the engine compartment. Also I am getting a warning code when starting the vehicle up and have tried going through the routine to clear this but it will not clear. Sometimes even one of Mercedes engineers find it can take them 15 minutes to clear this problem which re-happens if the engine stalls or the battery has gone flat. Thanks Ted
