Don, further to the 2006 Mercedes Actros 2640 tractor unit......Can you advise, the cab of the truck is not locked down, does this impact upon the operation of the instrument cluster and does the truck operate ok if the cab is not locked down? I've got a manual for the truck but it's all in German.

Hi there thanks for requesting me

there should be a sensor that will not allow any operation until the cab is locked down

we had this issue on one of our trucks at another depot

as for the dash cluster i am not sure if it effects it or not

Hi there

From what i just read is if the truck has had no battery power for awhile you have to reset the ecu

What we did was whip of the neg feed on battery, tap it on the pos and get a nice spark then give it 5 mins and reattach the neg battery feed. Might sound crazy? i thought it was a windup too at first but that "advice" came from a merc mastertech (off the record obviously) and it forces the ECU to do a full reset.

try that see if it helps

Just checking, you are saying to hit it on the 24 volt positive terminal, not the 12 volt positive ? Will check tomorrow if the cab lift is electric or manual, hadn't paid much attention previously. Thanks for fuse panel arrangement - good. I'll run some more checks. Get back to you again probably tomorrow.

Hi Don, I clicked on the link you provided for the english version of the manual, took me to a website www.oldiesmusiccity.net that requires me to sign up with the use of a credit card. Does that sound right to you? Did you mean for me to do this? A bit anxious about providing credit card details to view the manual.

Good morning let me check again
