Electronic Gremlin help, PLEASE!

11/08/2003 10:36 PM
The scenario...
The drivers side seat works, everything works on the drivers side (window, power mirror, etc.)...
Then, I take the car in and the center console cluster is disassembled so that the "shift controller" could be replaced. Eight hundred and fifty dollars later the shift cluster works great, but the MBZ tech tells me, "I wonder why this trim piece doesn't fit... " And none of the things on the left door work. No window, no mirror no seat controls.(the seat still powers- the lift up feature to access the back seat moves the seat forward as it should). The MBZ tech is wondering if it is the door control or something of the like.
Then when I get the car home I realize that the console isn't sat down properly (the reason the shifter trim wont work). I lift up the console and then position it properly. Wala, the shift trim fits and the windows (and everything else on the drivers side) works!!
Here's where it goes wrong again...I realized the ashtray was a little crooked, so, I took the console out (the ashtray screws in in two places under the console, and when I put it all together -NO DOOR FUNCTIONS AGAIN! What does his mean?

This means you should take it back to the "MBZ tech" and demand that he make everything function as it should.

Electronic Gremilin help... again (please!)

Ok, here goes... the "dead door" in my CLK is not the respon. of the shop that fixed my shift control computer... or whatever it is called. But, I really need some help. There is an intermittent problem in which the drivers door goes dead. I suspected a battery (it wasn't holding a charge really well...) replaced the battery and everything was great... for two days. Now, drivers door dead again. I did reset it once by pulling the fuse and putting it back in (as I read how to do in a search of the forum -thanks) but it dosen't always work. Is there a common thread that would control the power seat control, the drivers mirror and the drivers window and that would go out intermit? Thanks, and one last question... When I bought the car it needed an entire interior. The dealer that sold me the car (back East -had it shipped) replaced the carpet, the console and the front seats. They mounted the drivers seat crooked. The seats came from a CLK coupe, not the cab. Has anybody ever heard of seat going in crooked? The auto trim place that is finishing the job for me can't seem to get it fixed? Does anybody have an insights?? Thanks in advance!
