Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Car started fine this morning, but I noticed the gas gauge was on "empty," even though the car should have had at least a half tank. So I turned the car off, and immediately attempted a re-start. The battery light and engine lights come on, but the engine wouldn't turn over. I checked the fuses under the hood, which all looked okay. I would appreciate any help!
That is a security code you have to enter into the head unit when the power is disconnected. It should be in your owner's manual leather case. there is a clear plastic card holder that the card is in when the car is new. You enter the code and then hit the * symbol. after you enter the code wrong 3 times it goes into wait mode and there is a process you have to do to get it out of wait mode. so if you find the card and you enter the number 2 times and the unit does not start working do not enter it a 3rd time. if you can,t find the card call the dealership with the v.i.n. and they will give you the code(you may have to prove ownership by going there and showing you i.d.). The other possibility is is that the radio has been replaced but the installer forgot to put the new code card in the owner.s manual. In that event you will have to remove the radio and get the serial number off the case. with regards to your starting issue-I have seen on several occasions the starter not work or intermittently work with a fuse issue. I know that the starter receives it's power from the brake lamp fuse on 93 and 94 model year and some 95. I believe it is fuse 8 in the engine compartment. Make sure you put the right amperage fuse in and also that the correct wattage bulbs are in the tail lens assemblies. these type of strip fuses can blow just at the tip and make intermittent contact. I was going to talk about this in the original posting but I didn't want to lead you down the wrong path so I assume your vehicle did not crank at all. Good luck I hope I have been helpful
