New Member. Owner of 1998 Slk AMG badged compressor.
Have owned this car for about 18 months and until recently have had no problems, but now the top has decided to not open. Also the ASR/ABS light was coming on intermittently so replaced the driver's side wheel sensor and now the dash ASR/ABS lights are on constantly. Any thoughts?.

cptnmike,

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location and vehicle (year?: 1996-2015, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’
.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from Madrid ...

If you have speed sensor problems the roof may not function due to it being speed related !
Have you tried moving the steering wheel totally locked one way and then the other ?
Can you get any fault errors read to see what errors may be present ( make a note of them to share if needed ) and then erase them ?

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!


It's a good idea to update your Vehicle info like Jbanks15 states. Help will be coming along soon by one of our members. By updating it give us a lot more info. Maybe ask for a VIN # request.

Thank you to all of you that have welcomed me to your membership.
I will update my profile asap.
I am a retired Canadian fisherman, now living in the UK aboard a narrow boat.
Originally from Nottingham/Leicester, married to a Canadian girl from Vancouver. We decided to come to the old country when I retired after farming and then fishing for a living.
I bought my SLK 230 about 18months ago after selling a CLK, not needing four seats most of the time. I have a Land Rover which I use as a hobbymobile, and it has the seating if I do need to carry more than just my wife.
My SLK as had a number of mods to it and is badged as a AMG, although it is not , It doesn't have a AMG engine. I haven't any photos at this time. The Vin for those interested is WDB1704472FO68494, a 1998 model.
Re my post about the folding roof, a blast of WD40 on the moving parts seems to have done the trick at this time, I still have to sort the dash warning lights about the ASR/ABS sensor as this also effects the cruise control.
Thank you, Cptn Mike
