#287 of 886 Re: Buzzing Noise and Odor - 2004 C230SS [mbz66]
Jun 28, 2005 (12:43 pm)
I am experiencing the foul odor coming from my 2004 C240. My car has been in the shop 8 times and Mercedes Benz is unable to correct the problem. The odor comes from the evaporator in the air conditioner. Water collects in the evaporator and does not drain, which in turn causes mildew to grow. This problem is not correctable because the air-conditioner in this car does not have a rest button which can dry the evaporator and prevent mildew from growing. This issue will not end and will still exist after 8 treatments.
If the car is still under the original manufactures warranty consider the law.
Please feel free to email me with further questions.

More likely a fuel supply problem. Fuel filter? Injection pump? Fuel pump? A failed turbo is a very long shot - not impossible, but highly unlikely.

My wife sometimes has the same problem with her stereo shutting down with her 2005 230 Kompressor. Except, sometimes it won't come back on for days at a time. This started the very fist month she got the car! The dealer has changed just about every component in the system and is now looking to install a second "special" amp. My wife is considering to have them re-purchase the car under the california lemon Law since it has been a year without change. What have you done to remedy your situation?
#292 of 886 2005 C230 Kompressor Stereo Shuts Down
Jul 01, 2005 (4:40 pm)
My wife's stereo sometimes shuts down unexpectedly or won't come on after the car is restarted. Sometimes it won't come back on for days at a time. This started the very fist month she got the car! The dealer has changed just about every component in the system and is now looking to install a second "special" amp modified by the company after we made comtact with the MBUSA. My wife has made a total of 12 visits of the past year for this issue. She is now considering to have them re-purchase the car under the california lemon Law since it has been a year without change which is unfortunate because she loves the car. Is their anyone out there that has had this issue? Can anyone provide some advice?
#294 of 886 05 C230K Passenger Airbag Off Light
Jul 03, 2005 (10:35 pm)
The Passenger Airbag Off light stays on a few seconds after starting the car and goes off (light is off) even no one sits on the passenger seat. I have driven loaner C230 and the light stays on when the seat is empty. Dealer says that MB-USA claims that my car was built early (May 2004 construction date) and does not have WSS (weight sensing system). It's a little hard to believe that MB just added this WSS later, when the Passenger Airbag OFF indicator is installed on the dashboard just for that purpose to warn that passenger airbag is not active.

...is that our '02 C240 does not show an airbag light if the passenger seat is empty.
The actual SENSING system has always been there, and the bag will not deploy if there is no one in the seat [so it says for our car, anyway] - but the light doesn't stay lit, which is just as well as far as I'm concerned...I'd find it annoying, I think.

It is interesting to learn of the cause of foul odor coming from the air vents, due to water collected and not drained from the evaporator, and the problem being not correctable.
Please bear with my ignorant, what is rest button? Do they make this button available to other models, such as the E and S classes.
Thanks for the information. I'll contact the dealer after this holiday.
