Crank sensor failure would not cause a non crank situation-only a no start situation
i think your EIS in on the way out-get it on a diagnostic to check codes and live data
hi Cruisedirector, just wondering if they managed to fix the cranking issue & if so what was the cause?
Jeff keeps telling me to get a SmartTop but I don't use my top daily or frequently like a lot of folks do so it is not worth the expense to me, at least for now. Using the console switch is just not that big of a deal to me. I'm just happy the car starts and I didn't have to remove the ESL and EIS to ship them off for an expensive repair.Happy to hear you got it fixed, and it starts. Just get a Smart Top; not only can you open or close the top from a distance but do several other items, like windows, chirp, and lights flash on when locking and unlocking, and lights flash when the top is in operation the list goes on.
I did a lot of research on the Smart Top when it was first suggested to me a few weeks ago but most of the stuff it does I wouldn't use or just don't care about. But that's all personal preference. I don't really care about the flashing lights and all that. It would be nice to open the top as you are walking to the car so it's ready when you get in and start the car, but I don't want it bad enough to pay for the SmartTop. Instead I had the AMG shift modes programmed into the conductor plate and I just bought a throttle/pedal response controller to make the throttle response much quicker. I'll get more fun and use out of those things than a SmartTop.Smarttop-->I don't have one either (I know lots of members love it) and it seems to me that the primary reason is being able to lower/raise the roof while moving up to say 30mph or so. You can also adjust the windows with it in ways that you normally can't do.
There are other reasons as well that are discussed elsewhere. I'm sure you've already been directed to them but for the benefit of those new members, have a look here
A new member asked me so I wrote this primer. Tired of holding that inside vario roof button for 22 seconds (20 - 26 depending on model)? Tired of standing outside your car with your keyfob/smartkey pointed at your door handle for 22 seconds looking like an idiot while the roof cycles? Watch...www.slkworld.com
