Customer Question

hi,i hope you can help..i recently bought a 2003 cl500 with 62k on the clock,it's in excellent condition with full merc service history,but i knew of these problems..the previous owner told me it needs a central locking pump which i've ordered but the parking sensors keep turning off themselves,when turned back on the front ones stay on with the audible warning,,is there a faulty front sensor? also i can't receive tv pictures,is that because the signals are now digital,and if so ,can i get it upgraded to digital? i really appreciate your help.thanks

MBpaul :

Hi - the parking system should be checked on a diagnostic tool such as Mercedes STAR diagnosis - any faulty sensors will be stored as fault codes in this system and this will pinpoint the exact sensor(s) at fault so they can be replaced

MBpaul :

With regards to the TV - Mercedes has no solution for converting an analogue system to a digital one I'm afraid. There are however some aftermarket solutions out there but they are very expensive (any thing up to £1000 depending on the exact system needed) last time I checked. I would recommend speaking to a local car audio specialist as prices change quite frequently for products like this.

MBpaul :

I had looked into this with a specialist that we use for aftermarket installs but the customers I spoke to all thought it was too expensive (as do I!)

MBpaul :

Let me know if you need anything else

Best regards, Paul
