My Apologies

if i insulted anyone, thinking that my mechanic and i had solved the window lift problems affecting my OCTOBER PRODUCTION 1995 e320 cab.

we thought we had. and for two days after my last post, everything worked as the m-b manual said it would.

then it all went south again.

until today. on a multi-leg trip in houston, here is how it went. leg 1, no auto down. leg 2, no auto down. leg 3, auto down works. leg 4, auto down works.

leg 5, a top down exercise. last time this was done on 1/6/02, engine running, car in park, windows were lowered, top was lowered, windows were raised. using the center console control, then all windows were lowered.
today, 4/6/02, windows did nothing while the top was lowered. engine also running. tranny also in park.

leg 6, auto down now does not work. leg 7, auto down does not work. leg 8, auto down does not work.

did dbag really design a system this unreliable?

is their a recall out on it?

i just cannot believe it. my other cars[6.9, 560sel, 560sec] are less electronic and predictable. is this 1995 e320 a picture into why i innately do not want to own the more electronic benzes of the present?

Sorry to hear about your problems!


We own a '93 300CE Cabriolet and have never had any problems with the top/window system working as it should.

Could it be that your convenience control module (windows)it starting to go? If you have the service manual CD (disk 1) you might want to check out the relay_control. pdf., within that file, check page 2.5, figure 20, part id N57. Maybe it could be a starting place. Since it sounds like your top works fine I don't think there would be anything wrong with the power top module which you can also find within the file I mentioned.

Have you checked the electrical connection to the switch?

If you don't have the CD let me know and I'll e-mail the pages to you.

Hope you can get this figured out because it really is a great car. My only wish is that they had put the power of our 400E under the hood.
