you will need to enter a code to get the radio to work again. if the code is not in the owners manual, you will probably need to call a dealership to get the code. you will probably need the vin number of the car.

My mercedes vito (model 2006) diesel wont start because of start module failure. What can i do ?

Mercedes-Benz... | Answered on Jan 07, 2011 | 436 views


a dealer should be able to give you the code if you get the serial number from the radio, also are you sure the code is not in with your car books, service manuals and book packs, often it is in there o a small credit sized card. alternatively some radio decoders will come to you at home, they charge about £25 in the UK to recode the radio.

Hope this helps

This car has a known fault with a relay that causes these exact symptoms. The relay is responsible for fuelling and typically develops an intermitent fault causing the vehicle to stall and then restart after a few minutes.

The suspect is the K40 relay in the module box under the hood next to the passenger side hood hinge. This relay costs around $160. Additionally a faulty K40 will not store codes in the ECU and I presume a diagnostic scan has already been performed when you have already had the car in with Mercedes.Other issues have been known to develop with the wiring harness that eventually disintegrates through age and ends up sending intermittent faults to the ECU.

However, a wiring harness is an expensive fix and given how common the K40 relay issue is with this car I would advise this as the first issue to investigate.

Thanks for using FixYa.

For quite obvious reasons FixYa does not allow experts to issue bypass routines.

Your only option in this instance is to take it to a dealership or a car entertainment installer of good repute.

I am sorry but hope yo understand.

We are not able to verify original owners etc from this simple web site.

Check if your battery has enough power by testing the voltage and if possible try to jump start the car.If that does not solve then you need to check the starter motor but it may be some other problems.Hope this helps.

May have a bad connection on the door pin switch. Remove the pin switch, and make sure the connection is tight.

You can use this for most of it. Most remote starts/keyless entry/alarm do the same things. Most are even colored the same way.
