Does anyone know if this N10/3 CCM is the same for the face lift model. I have a 2002 which I need to some how bypass the boot micro switch that operates when the boot divider is pulled to enable the roof to open.
My problem is that I cant open the boot as lock is seized and now cant open the roof as the divider is not pulled up.
Long story by I did manage to open the boot by opening the roof and then trip the boot lock ,,happy days or so i thought .
Put the roof back up and then accessed my PSE pump but needed to retract the divider. Great so far,,,then I stupidly closed the boot which had locked again. No problem I thought.... I will do the same again but......this time the roof wouldn't open because I hadn't taped down the micro switch . Damn damn and damn again!!!!
Hence my question.
I did find the answer to how to do it but I feel this was for the pre facelift model so the wiring might be different and just needed some confirmation. Its PIN 54 apparently the grey wire with the violet tracer. OMG HELP!!!
Any help would be most grateful
PS It also said the micro switch S69/10 can be bypassed through the Star Diagnostics... can any body confirm this please? Forum member i860 has be helping me so far but doesn't think his Star has the right programme to do this.
For any of you that have been following my tales of woe with my seized locks and schoolboy errors, I have some good news to share if anyone has a similar issue in the future of trying to get into the boot by using the vario roof but forgot to put your roof divider screen back in place.
I had picked some of the best Mercedes brains around my area to ask if this micro switch S69/10 could in some way be bypassed to allow the roof to be opened. Lots of sharp intakes of breath and head scratching ensued.
Having done my homework with 'google being by friend' to quote a wise old sage, I knew that the small grey wire with the violet tracer leading to PIN 54 in the N10/3 CCM needed to be grounded. This was way beyond my pay grade.
In steps my hero Martin aka forum member Savcom who very kindly offered to help me and with the precision of a brain surgeon waved his magic electric wands in the direction of PIN 54.
One minute later he called out.....try the roof now!
I pulled back that magic red button we all know and love and ...Bingo... I could hear the familiar sound of motors springing into action as she started to open up.
Needless to say I was a very happy bunny and could now get on with my original task of sorting out my PSE pump.
After a thorough clean up it still doesn't open my central locking but I do now have my dome light working again .
So if any of you know a good PSE pump going for a reasonable price please let me know.
So I would like to give a big thanks to Savcom for his time and help with this issue and to Ross aka forum member i860 who has also provided me with his help and assistance too and finally to this forum which provides the vehical for all of us to share our woes and happiness our cars bring us
