Discovering your W203
i open this thread (sorry if it was already opened or discussed before) to share and highlight the special hidden features of W203 (not actually hidden as they are in the manual though) which maybe useful for those that don't have the manual or have unreadable Jap manual. These features may be optional or standard and some may have all some may not, so let me list down what i know and members may add others...

1. remote key - can unlock just the driver door or all 4 doors + bonet with one key press only, however with one key press will lock all doors. very useful is always travel alone.
2. remote key - can unlock the door/all doors with fog light simultenously, very useful when in the dark.
3. remote key - can open sunroof and wind down all doors remotely, similarly and remotely can close them as well
4. rear fog light - only on the right side when switched on, so don't go to workshop and tell mechanic that the left light bulb sudah terbakar (that's why there is no "malfunction" message appears)
5. side mirror - will tilt/go down when engage in reverse gear and supposedly go back to its original position after reversing
6. seat, side mirrors, rear mirror will go back to its original positions when the driver exits the car
7. headlamp - can switch off auto for a defined period after the engine is shut off
8. radio/CD - can play even after the key was removed but will switch off auto for ... (i think 30 minutes, forgot already la..)

i never tried 5 and 6 above as i think these only available on W203 with memory seats feature and mine doesn't have, so what else...

p/s: i believe some of the above are also available on other MB models

hello Pak Lan

bravo Pak for starting this thread...it doesnt matter whether its been documented before as having a thread here & now would be useful for new members as well as new owners of the W203..

keep the list growing...perhaps other models may start also. i wish i could start off for W210 but mine is the pre-facelifted version with very minimal driver comfort features & gadgets

cheers

Bro Rothman,

Keep the list continuing...as I dont have the manual book. For No.3, all we need to do is to press the open button in font of infra-red receiver at the driver's door handle right?

regards
Zaff

yes, you shall press and continue pressing it until the level you want to open the sunroof and door in front of the infra-red receiver at the driver's door handle. similarly if you want to close them, continue pressing the "lock" button. This feature however can only be used near to the infra-red receiver... jauh2 tak buleh la..

dear friends...

just to share... 2/3 months ago my 203 cannot lock...
only unlock... he... he... panic kejap coz missus
terus taknak bawak keta... checked d manual, its n
indication of d remote batt dying... it further
goes to say that in event of emergency (which i was in
at d time... he... he...), make sure d key touches
d driver side key hole & it will still function...

did that for 3 days b4 changing d batts...

& plse remember, u can open d remote urself (even i
chief melopong can do it, u definitely can too... he
... he...) but quite tricky... need to take out d
shiny "solex"-able looking lock & push d grey clip
just at d top of d lock's holster...

buy d batts at camera shop for 6-7 bucks
each (it'll need 2...)... no need to reset computer
or what not, just change d batts...

dear friends...

1 more thing to add... plse also check
ur magnetic switches... if it leaks oil,
it will drip on ur wiring harness... making
it brittle... & later flow to ur ecu... &
its cooking time...!!!

was told by a merc specialist it less than 500
to change, but once d ecu fries... well, ur
wallets toast then... :-O

2. remote key - can unlock the door/all doors with fog light simultenously, very useful when in the dark.
(this feature need to activate it on instrument cluster, otherwise wont work)

3. remote key - can open sunroof and wind down all doors remotely, similarly and remotely can close them as well

4. rear fog light - only on the right side when switched on, so don't go to workshop and tell mechanic that the left light bulb sudah terbakar (that's why there is no "malfunction" message appears)

5. side mirror - will tilt/go down when engage in reverse gear and supposedly go back to its original position after reversing

6. seat, side mirrors, rear mirror will go back to its original positions when the driver exits the car
(Rear view mirror goes back its ori position feature depends on which model and which spec. not every has this function)

7. headlamp - can switch off auto for a defined period after the engine is shut off

8. radio/CD - can play even after the key was removed but will switch off auto for ... (i think 30 minutes, forgot already la..)

9. A/C recirculation button - can wind up/down all windows by pressed and hold for approx. 5 seconds.

10.A/C Frt Defroster & Recirculation buttons - By pressing both buttons together aprox. 5 seconds, all A/C air flap stepper motors will normalizing/syncronize.
