Re: 2000 SL2 Hard Start, Dark Smoke, No codes

Re: No start 2004 L 300

Re: No start, no spark

If you didn't throw away the original crank sensor, you can measure it for resistance with a multimeter. In general, crank sensors will have between 700-1200 ohms. Only two wires will have...

Re: No start 2004 L 300

Re: 2006 Vue V6 blower fan problem

Re: 2006 Vue V6 blower fan problem

Presuming heater blower controls haven't changed from '05 to '06, there may be a resistor card used to control fan blower speeds. It's behind the blower motor.
