Problems Since 2001 Purchase of SLK320
The car has been reasonably troublefree except for the following items. Vehicle is a 2002 purchased in August 2001. It has almost 40K miles on it.
1. Brake pedal switch needed to be replaced. It would cause a warning light on the dash to illuminate.
2. The 5A fuse for the intercooler charge system cooler used to blow frequently causing the engine to run improperly. After looking at the size of the wires, I replaced the 5A fuse with a 7.5A fuse. This was about 5 years ago. No more problems have occurred.
3. I did not use the headlight washer system for many years. The wands would pop out but no spray was emitted. Repeated pressing of the switch eventually got it working. I'll remember to use it occasionally from now on. As the wands are lower than the reservoir, I suspect there is some sort of spring loaded valve that pressure must overcome for the squirt to occur. Evidently, the valve was stuck.
