Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Mercedes-Benz ML500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 262009

I have 2002 Mercedes ml-500 and my climate control does not works and blowing cooled air all the time even when I selected to full hot. I did buy Mercedes shop manual and as I was reading the service bulletins issued by Mercedes manufacturer I found that the factory is aware of this issue the A/C system sometimes does not produce heat or cooled air. Mercedes conformed that certain control units part numbers have low voltage problems which causes this and the want the car owner to replace the A/C control unit with the updated part number 163 829 57 89 at the car owner expense because as they say it is not safety issue" well can that be when you don't have heat in the very cold / snow weather as we have here in boston" as far as I am concern this is a safety issue when it comes to heating the windshield in the bad winter states. Please let me know if my complain makes correct.
