Customer Question
The suspension on my...

The suspension on my 05 viano is flat and have no warning light on. i have had a diagnostic machine plugged in but get no reading about suspension at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?

The ride is hard because the cars on its bump stops. doesnt seem to be any fluid leaks. i think its electrical but cant find the control unit.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Mercedes?

Not sure, its 05 viano ambient compact.

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

Had it looked at everything underneath is connected but with no power to it.

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

Tried looking online for location of control unit,relays and fuses but nothing corresponds with my vehicle.
