How do you reset the routine maintenance reminder on a 1999 Mercedes slk?

Hello, I just tried this out and it works for sure (November 2, 2006), it took me two tries so be patient. I have a 2000 SLK 230 so this should work for most model years. There are two nobs on the instrument panel. The nob on the left resets your odometer, this is the nob we are going to use, lets call it button 1. In addition, there are two positions when you insert the key nto the ignition. The second position lights up all of the instrument lights before turning on the car, this is the position we are going to use, lets call it position 2. 1. Turn key in steering lock to position (2) 2. Within 4 seconds press button (1) twice 3. The present status for distance is displayed. Within 10 seconds turn key in steering lock to position 0 (starting position without taking the key out) 4. Press and hold button (1), while turning key in steering lock to position 2 again. The present status for distance is displayed once more. Continue to hold button (1) 5. Release button (1) when you hear a beep. You have now reset it successfully. just tried on slk 2oo 2002 model worked first time thanks to the man that posted answer

Radio code 1998 Mercedes slk 230?

Each car radio has its own individual code, therefore there's no exact answer for this. Just open the car manual and most likely there will be a small silver card inside of the booklet that tells you what the radio code is.

Otherwise, go to your local dealer and they will reset it for you.

There are a few sites on the web that can provide the information in around 30 mins with simply your VIN #. The cost ranges from $5 to $25. Your dealer will not provide the info based on your vin over the phone as they want proof of ownership (makes sense). So to me it was worth paying to avoid a trip to the dealership and not have to try and find my radio serial number.

Those little generator light sets for bicycles. If you need more electricity, hook a car alternator to a stationary exercise bike.

My Mercedes C280 went for service. After the service when I enter the unlock code of radio I see message waiting on the consol of the radio. I think I enter a wrong code. How to reset the radio?

An answer to your question according to the book you are to turn the radio on and leave it on and you will see the message(waiting) it will stay like that for 15 minutes then the sreen will turn to code which at this point you may enter the code and it will work again. Good luck. In case you lost your code and unless you know the radio serial number (you can remove the radio and see the no behind the set) the fastest way to get your code back is to go to www.radio-code.co.uk. Follow the instruction and for 8.99 british pound (yes you have to pay for the service) you will get the right code instantly. It works for my BECKER car radio. Believe me it works.

Where is gas cap release on Mercedes slk 280?

There is NO switch or lever for the gas cap cover on a newer SLK280. To open the cover, just "press" on the left-hand side of the cover and it will pop open. To close it, simply swing the cover to the left and press down until it latches.

Which Device converts electrical energy from mechanical energy?

Modern electrical generators make use of Faraday's law to convert mechanical energy in the form of motion into electrical energy. Mechanical energy is used to turn large magnetic coiled in electrical wire, and as the magnets and thus magnetic field moves, an electrical current is induced in the wire producing electricity. The actual mechanical energy can be produced in a variety of ways, often by combustion of a fuel, utilizing flowing water, or heating water into steam that will push against a turbine.

The reverse process of going from electrical energy to mechanical energy in an electric motor utilizes a similar process. The application of a current to a coiled wire will produce a magnetic field that will oppose the field of a nearby permanent magnet, resulting in a torque on the coil producing rotational mechanical energy. This rotational energy can later be converted into nearly any other form of mechanical energy by some other intermediary deice.

Energy conversions - mechanical to electrical?

The usual setup is called a generator. The basic idea here is that a piece of wire moves through a magnetic field; this will cause an electrical current. The electrical current causes another magnetic field that opposes the movement, so it requires (mechanical) energy to keep it moving.

Why would a car pull to the left and shimmy between 60 and 70?

Tire out of balance, low air pressure in the left front tire, wheel bent, out of alignment, or worn steering parts.

Fix clutch vw polo fox?

If by fixing the clutch you mean replacing it ? Replacing the clutch is relatively straightforward: Parts needed: Throwout bearing Transmission clutch kit including pressure plate and driven plate rear main seal for the engine rear transmission mount rubber. Shifter linkage rebuild kit ($20 bux from the parts place, google on web) 3 qts redline MTL transmission oil 17 mm hex wrench to drain and replace fluid (think Sears here) Borrow of buy a clutch alignment tool (no not the rabbit style) With vehicle on ground loosen the front wheel hub nuts (they are on VERY tight >150Lbs/ft torque) Remove the battery ground connection after noting any radio securoty codes you may have. Chock the wheels , jack up the front of the vehicle, secure on jackstands. remove the drive shafts on both sides baggie the CVs so you don't contaminate them. Mark and emove the starter wires, remove the starter. If starter is old consider getting it rebuilt at this time. remove the shifter linkages, replace all the worn plastic bits, bag and lay aside. Support the engine with a floor jack. Loosen the front engine snubber mount (near the crankshaft pullry) remove the transmsiion mount (looks like a sqaushed starred donut) under drivers feet (approximately) Remove the mount bracket I suggest you renew the mount at this time Remove the clutch cable from the clutch lever remove the bolts holding the tranny to the engine Lower the engine at the rear SUPPORT the transmission and slide the unit off the pilot bushing. PUT NO PRESSURE on the transmission input shaft!!! Lower tranny to ground and remove from under unit. mark the pressure plate (clutch cover) as to orientation with a witness mark. Remove it and the clutch driven plate, don't breathe the dust. (BAD for humans) Note the driven plates spline orientation. Clean the pilot bushing in the center with carb cleaner, regrease when dry with a smear of MOS2 greas (black and ugly type) Not too much just a thin smear. Clean the transmission shaft with WD40 or Kerosene, dry with clean rag. Remove and replace the throwout bearing, if you've been breaking clutch cables lately the pivot point on the side of the case where the thowout shaft lives is dirty. It needs to be cleaned w/cleaner and lubed with MOS2 grease. Place the clutch plate in position, make sure you get the splines oriented correctly. Clean the steel surface of the clutch pressure plate with a light hydrocarbon like lighter fluid, no grease here... I've used starting fluid here in a pinch, no smoking ;-) Place the clutch cover (new unit? orient the same as the old one) over the plate. Use the tool to center the plate under the cover. If you mis-align the plate putting the unit back together will be a painful experience... so be careful, check your work. Tighten the plate into position, use a cross pattern on the bolts. Don't be sloppy here , a bolt coming loose would be bad $$$$$... Add a small amount of grease onto the transmission input splines. This helps the clutch action, not a lot just a bit to make the shaft shiny. If you're strong enough you can lift the transmission into position and slide it onto the plate splines. Otherwise use a floor jack to lift into position. Put the tranny in gear so that you can spin the axel adapter to move the shaft splines to get them to align. Reverse this procedure to finish up. I recommend driving the car after initially adjusting the pedal for 12mm or 1/2 free play. Drive the car and re-adjust as needed. Get the transmission hot by driving for an hour. Drain the fluid. replace the bottom plug after it stops dripping Add fluid to the side plug till the fluid runs out. replace the plug. Enjoy the new clutch.

Where does the 12 volt power supply come from on a 1999 SLK 230 Mercedes?

The same as any modern car, i.e. when the engine is not running, 12v power is supplied by the vehicle battery, but with the engine running, 12v power is supplied by the alternator.
