Customer Question
Hello, I have the...

Hello, I have the Mercedes W220 S 430. It does not start the engine.
The car was about 14 days without a battery. After the new starter is purchased, it rotates the engine but does not start. Only the P1605 error code is displayed on the original diagnostics.
The actuators indicate: Engine control blocked - Yes
how should I proceed to unlock the engine control unit?
Thanks for every advice.
Yours sincerely, Radek

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 430?

2000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 430 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ano, funkci svíčky, nedáví jiskru, výměna senzoru kliky a vačky

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Auto je na LPG
