Mercedes non start, Crash Event – Active

One of the first concerns were that the gear selector wasn’t lit up, and neither was there a telltale gearbox position indicator on the dashboard.

Gear selector initially had no lights suggesting an electrical fault.
Gearbox telltale now showing P after poor connection found and fixed.

Because the vehicle was purchased as a write off, the engine had not been seen working. The vehicle wouldn’t start because of a Crash Event in the ECU. Crash events are often activated when the airbags are deployed. This was no exception.

Engine ECU crash event stored but didn’t throw up a fault code. Crash event cleared to allow engine start.
Mercedes-Benz SLC partially rebuilt ready to be finished.

After performing our work, the vehicle can now be finished off and turned over to the customer.
