How To used MB Star fix 2000 Mercedes S430 Fuel Guage innacuracy

2000 S430 Problem description – Fuel Guage inaccuracy:

I had to change my “Rear Sam?” because of some water damage I had gotten under the back seat, on the passenger side. This had made my fuel guage not work, or any power go to the rear. I had changed the SAM, and now everything works, even the fuel guage. But then I kept on driving, the guage needle would move, but it is innacurate.MB Star C4 It would tell me there is like 18G in the car for about 250miles of driving. And when I fill up the car…The needle will stay all the way down, as if it was not working, then after about 50 miles of driving, it will shoot all the way up.

Top 8 Reasons to Get MB SD Connect C4:

1. Support wireless diagosis

2. Supports K line and CAN BUS diagnosis, besides UDS protocol diagnosis. While MB STAR C4 main board does not have UDS chip and so not support UDS protocol diagnosis;
3. The multiplexer now uses Lan cable to connect;
4. The connector adopts Military quick swap technology, you can plug/unplug it for 10,000 times, always working stable;
5. All core accosseries adopts original new packing chip, tested for 24hours to guarantee the quality of the products;
6. Support offline and online programming, if you want to do online programming, please buy online SCN coding service
7. Support Mercedes Benz Cars after year 2000
8. Multi-Language available: English/Bulgarian/Danish/Greek/Spanish/French/Italian/Korean/Polish/Romanuan/Serbo-Croatian/ Turkish/Czech/German/Finish/Hyngarian/Japanese/Dutch/Portuguese/Russian/Swedish/Chinese

Someone had said it is my Sending Unit. Another had told me it was a fuel relay?

Has anybody had this problem, or know about it and can tell me what I can do to fix this…

My fuel guage used to work properly until the rear SAM was damaged, and when I replaced the SAM, The rear tail lights started working again…Because there was no power going to the rear at all because of the damaged comp. Now that I replaced it, I have all power back in the rear, and there is power for the fuel guage…But it just doesn’t read right….And when I fill it up, it wont read at all until about 40 to 50 Miles into my drive.

Solution:

It appears that the SAM MAY need to be coded and it is behaving “strangely” because the unit has insufficient or incorrectparameters to send the correct signal to the fuel gauge.

Coded means “programmed” to match your vehicle.

The SAM you have purchased is a generic part and MAY fit to many models and markets of MB and needs to be “set up”.

This requires connecting to a MB STAR diagnostic tool (MB proprietary) or similartype of diagnostics computer to carry out the procedure.

Connecting to such a computer will also enable On Board Diagnostic codes to be read which should assist in pointing towards the problem by identifying that parameters are missing or implausible for the Vehicle Identity Number VIN etc.

Who is good supplier of STAR diagnostic tool?

I have STAR and it’s worth every penny… just takes some time to get to learn how it works. Dont get one with virtual image software, get an actual Dell D630 with original HD and MB SD Connect C4 unit.

Compared with the virtual image software, it runs faster, Internal is so much nicer because now I just have the multiplexer and laptop to carry to the car, nothing to unplug or fall off, if you use it quite a bit then go External hard drive.

Solution from mbstarshop:

1) Check and record your MB SDConnect C4 multiplexer battery
2) Hook up a digital multimeter to set it to the direct current
3) Get two t-pins and plug them into the OBD socket at PIN 5 and PIN17 position
4) Put your positive lead to PIN16 and negative lead to PIN5.
5) Write down the voltage on the digital multimeter
6) Check if the voltage you from PIN16 and PIN 5 is same in step 1.
7) Find the light green wire with a blue tracer band of PIN10 of the OBDII connector.
8) If the voltage differs in step 1 and step 6, the problem is probably with your battery.
9) If the battery is damaged or broken, please replace your battery.

How to connect the wires with MB SD Connect Compact 4 mux

One of Mercedes W124 1995 owner has just bought the MB SD C4 and Dell D630 laptop package from fobdii.com. He want to connect the Star diagnostic SD Connect C4 with this -95 W124, but do not know how to connect wires to the multiplexer. Our engineers help him solved this problem.

MB Star Diagnostic Tools  Customer questions:

“Hello,I’ve got a -95 W124 and would like to connect my MB SD Connect c4 to it. But I do not know how to connect the wires from the SDconnect c4 mux?

The Black plug is of course ground, which will go in pos 1 on the Data Link
The White plug is marked KL15 which I understand is going to pos 16..?
The red plug is marked 12V B+, don’t know where this goes.
The blue plug is marked K-Line/LIN, don’t know where this goes.
There is to groups of plugs with two plugs in each. One Green and one yellow. One group is marked CAN HS and one is marked CAN LS. The green plug in each group is marked CAN_L and the yellow is marked CAN_H. ”

mb-sd-c4-mux-connect

Engineers Solution:
We has another SDConnect C4 customer who have tried it successfully as follows:
Connect Red to +12v battery directly, White to pin 16, Black to pin 1, and Yellow to pin 8 (some motors like M111 series) to get HFM error and live data, Pin 7 for HVAC, Pin 6 for airbag etc.

The Result:
After trial and error a gazillion times, this is what we ended up with, and the software actually responds!!

So it seems the BLUE jack, marked K-Line, is the one you’ll have to move from pin to pin according to the software’s instructions. Mission accomplished

If you had the same problem , please can try this way to sort out, hope it also help you.
