I have the same problem as you had. What did you do to correct it?

My 1996 E320 had a similar problem. The radio and windshield wipers stopped working intermittently. It took the dealer 3 days to find out it was caused by a bad ignition switch. I don't remember having trouble with the windows or sunroof but since my problem was intermittent, I may not have been aware that they weren't working.
#19 of 56 Squeaky Power Steering

My '96 E320 has 85K miles on it. When it's cold (<35F outside) the steering wheel seems to have a squeaky noise and a little bit of resistance to turn the wheels. It probably takes 30 seconds after start turning the wheels to feel normal again. Absolutely no problem during summer. Any thoughts and suggestion on this issue?. Thanks
#20 of 56 Mercedes-Benz E320 Temperature Guage Issue
Aug 22, 2008 (12:34 pm)
I have a 200l E320W, 3.2 Ltr., V-6, engine model W210 (M112) Sedan. This past winter the digital outside temperature guage on the instrument panel ceased displaying the temperature figures. I reported the problem to the Mercedes dealership repair service and asked for the cost to repair. I was told the entire instrument cluster needed to be replaced to the estimated cost of $1,800. At the time I didn't think it was necessary to view the outside temperature at that price. I have since had a conversation with the Dealership's General Manager who confided that he had a similar problem and all that was necessary was to change a cable. He said he would talk with the Mercedes Representative due in the following week. He did call me and, unfortunately, confirmed that, although earlier models could be repaired by replacing the cable, it would be necessary to replace the entire instrument cluster but was willing to "ease the cost" a bit. I felt the cost was prohibitive and declined his offer. Any insight from those that indicated they had a similar problem? Has Mercedes stepped up to the plate and fixed the problem at no cost? Is the problem the result of Chrysler's influence in the German machine?

Have heard that there are some independent shops that can do a repair for your problem and not have to replace complete display. This is all I know. Forget about Chrysler.
Suggest that you join the Mercedes owners club. You can read their site but cannot post unless you are a member. I have solved several problems with the help of this membership.

I have the same problems on my 2001 E320. Where can I find out if the recall includes my model.

MB dealers have a list of all recalls.

Is it possible for the general public to search MB's list of recalls covering the malfunctioning of the display?
