#18 of 220 2007 C230 - Mercedes buying back
Jul 20, 2007 (9:42 am)
I got my 2007 C230 in November. My ABS light came on and I took it to the dealer to be fixed. I ended up taking it in 5 different times for the same problem in less than a month. I kept complaining to the dealer, but what I had to do was call Mercedes corporate. They were great and I am in the process of having them buy back my car. Just wanted to let you know that if you have a lot of problems, call Mercedes Corporate to see what they can do for you.
#19 of 220 1998 C230 Fuel Gage

The fuel gage on my 1998 C230 is stuck on full. Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas on fixing this? It started after I filled up with gas. At first it register on empthy and the light came on that I was running on reserve. I shut off the engine then loosened the fuel cap. It went up to full and it has stayed there.
#20 of 220 Accident Value Vehicles
Sep 27, 2007 (1:09 am)
Mercedes Benz C230: On the driver side front corner has been hit and pushed in breaking the headlight damaging the bumper guard pushing the front quarter panel off and bending down the hood unnoticable to the human eye unless you tried to fit a new headlight assembly in there. The damage is extensive enough to be quoted at $4000. I have looked at family and friends in helping out but only so much can be done and parts are not cheap. This is the problem, if I am to fix the accident, the value to fix is about the value of the car. In stating that I am burning $4000 on a car that essentially could last me another two years or take that and put a lump sum down on another car. How am I to gain the most value out of this vehicle without extensively putting alot into it?

PO170 trouble code is directly related to AIR MASS FLOW SENSOR /not enough air in engine/. If you change it by yourself, which is easy, you will save $ 250 for installation. Price of new AIR MASS FLOW SENSOR is $400.
#22 of 220 Running thru HUGE puddle

I recently drove thru a HUGE puddle & my car made it thru but stalled after I got thru the water. No water came into my car but it won't start now. All of the lights inside & out come on but it won't turn over. Its a 2003 C240 with low miles on it.

Haven't checked that yet. Put a new battery in & that didn't work. Hoping that it is something simple.
#25 of 220 C230 ABS light
Dec 08, 2007 (5:41 pm)
Have a ABS light on a 98 C230. I'm guessing that it is probably a sensor but I am eliminating the easy stuff first.
fuse.....................CANNOT FIND ??????
Thats what I need for now....where is the fuse located? I've already looked under the hood in the fuse box....not there.
Also need to know how many sensors.....1 per wheel or only the front ?
How about on the differential ???
I'll pull the wheels and get to the sensors soon. Plan on checking the connections and cleaning them up ......hopefully thats the problem.
OK....any advice/inputs ?????

Code cleared..........DIY replaced Mass Air Sensor. A very simple <15 min job. Obviously saved a bunch of $$$$$ over the Mega Buck dealer.
