HI,

I am not an expert but would like to share my personal views that might be of some help.

1) Have you tried taking your car to City Cycle in Puchong. The guys there will inform you where this electrical repairs can be done. Their recommendations are normally good.

2) Item 2 can be settled at City Cycle.

I am not sure if you are already in contact with them.

Best wishes.

Re: gear and electrical issues w203
Hello benzz,

would like to share some info on your 'gear stuck in 3rd' issue. Used to have the same prob with my w210 e280 with likely the same gearbox as yours.

(1) change atf fluid with filter twice
(2) change the electroplate
(3) dry out the TCU (it was soaking wet with atf before)
(4) install sonnax shift kit from USA
(5) swap the TCU with another w210

none of the above solved my problem. drove it like that for over 3 years. I ended up having the gearbox replaced with a 2nd hand unit. Good luck to finding a solution... i genuinely think a qualified mechanic can pinpoint the root cause but my mechanic (whom i trust) strongly advise against taking the risk of getting it fixed... as the parts and labor cost is not cheap on this gearbox and the chances of it working perfectly after repair cannot be guaranteed (at least in sarawak).

i didn't regret getting my gearbox replaced. it work flawlessly every since.

Re: gear and electrical issues w203
Hi,

I suggest you do the following:

1. For parking sensor woes, look up bonson (www.bonson.com.my). He solved my previous W211 bumper/parktronic sensors when no one else wanted to. Some sensors were faulty and needed replacement - no issues at all after that. He'll need to hook them up to diagnose which are the ones faulty.

2. For gb - suggest you take it to City Cycle for them to diagnose the problem - these guys are magic.

All the best.

regards...
