Check hydralic resivoir for proper fludid level in the system, check pin switches in the trunk and suspension, clean ground wire locations and disconnect battery to reset the system. Then on level ground with ignition in position 2 operate. If that doesnt work come on back and be more specific about what it is or is not doing.

I have a 2000 Mercedes SL500. Cluster is flashing 'start error' and I have a P1570 code. Engine cranks but won't start. Starter has an abbreviated spin time too


code p1570 refers to ignition switch control module/ECM-attempted theft/data bus/not compatible ===causes --wiring--connections--trouble codes stored in other system--ignition switch control module---ECM
If this is a recent problem I would suggest that the ignition switch module be checked/replaced.

Car suddenly stopped 30 minutes later runs perfectly


This failure could be the crankshaft position sensor. Overheating or an oil leak through the rear seal can cause it to fail intermittently. My SL500 failed to start after traveling a distance, but after sitting for an hour or so, it suddenly started. Replaced the CPS and all was fine. Also, a dying fuel pump might cause this.

2003 sl500 the right side line is leaking hydronic fluid and the top won't open


your problem is the fluid is low and doesn't have enough fluid in the pump to operate. you can add fluid at the rear underneath your spare tire. the fluid is a special blend only at mercedes benz dealer. anything else will cause the top cylinders to fail and it is very costly to repair. the fluid is about $20. It leaks because you have a leaking seal in the top cylinder. Mercedes knew this would happen this is why it leaks right in front of your face hard to ignore that huh.

98 SL500 dead battery. Can't open trunk to get to


Hi Your S class has two batteries. The smaller one is located in the engine bay, and the bigger one in the boot (trunk). No need to access any of them, simply open the door with key, insert key to start engine, you will notice that not all ignition lights will come on, but the engine WILL start, and the batteries will be recharged after a short while.

Recently started having problems with convertible top getting stuck in both the opened and closed positions. 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL500. Any idea what the problem might be? And, is there any way to bypass...


hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections

you could try resetting the system also as this may help

if its still the same after this post back and ill try and help again.

THE SOFTTOP ON MY 98 SL500 won't go all the way up.


I solved my own problem by accident! I checked the hydraulic fluid under the spare tire and voila' the top started to work fine! It has worked perfectly now since July!
