Depending on the Mercedes model you own, the main battery and auxiliary battery can be located in various areas specific to your vehicle. For example, the 2006 Mercedes CLS 500/550 you will find the main two full sized batteries located under the floor cover in the trunk area. The 2006 Mercedes W211 E500 cars the main battery is in the trunk on the right side with the SBC (Sensotronic Brake System – backup battery) or auxiliary battery under the cabin air filter on the right side in the engine compartment. The complexity and sophistication of the Mercedes electrical system has placed the main and auxiliary batteries in various locations not typically seen in the average vehicle. Most don’t realize there are auxiliary batteries on the Mercedes. Linear Automotive can keep these main and auxiliary batteries in check during your maintenance inspection and have them examined once a year.
The lead-acid battery is the most commonly used battery today. The newest of these if the wet/flooded battery that is maintenance free and usually sealed to you don’t need to top off or add fluids. These can be dangerous if they are overcharged, which can cause an explosion. These are also relatively heavy and so are not used on hybrid battery cars. These are the most economical of the battery choices. Lithium-Ion batteries are considered high performance batteries but the life is shorter than the other battery choices. They are considered a very light battery suitable for electric or hybrid cars. These are the most expensive batteries. More research is being conducted to improve its properties, so it becomes the battery of choice.
The hybrid cars typically use the nickel-metal hydride batteries. These have a high dense energy but are smaller. The smaller size and weight are suitable for the hybrid vehicles which improves efficiency. These batteries are recyclable since they have less toxic materials in them. If the engine shuts down while you are driving, and you have about 100,000 miles on the engine it might be a seldom thought of culprit and that is the small voltage regulator on the alternator. It should be replaced about every 100,000 miles as a preventative measure. The brushes wear down and will lose contact with the alternator and the engine will simply stop while you are driving down the highway. The voltage regulator turns he alternator on and off. It prevents the battery from overcharging causing it to explode or burn out. When it loses contact the alternator will be in the off position and not send any current to charge your battery back-up and it will simply shut down as it the battery is dead.
If the battery light came on while you were driving it indicates that the alternator is not working and not charging up your battery. It’s important to turn off all the accessories because you are operating on only what is left of the battery power. These accessories include the radio, lights, and air conditioner. With the lights and blinkers off, use hand signals to get to a safe location, because the engine will likely not start again until you get a new battery and determine why this happened. Linear Automotive will be glad to sort out the problem, and repair it so you can get on your way.
If you are driving and you get a multitude of dash warning lights all on at once, pull to the side of the road quickly, since your engine will likely overheat and shut down. The power steering will also be difficult to maneuver. The water pump, power steering, air conditioner are all accessories on the serpentine belt and none of them will work until the belt is replaced. If the engine overheats too much or too long severe mechanical damages may occur. It’s best to have it towed in. Linear Automotive only uses recommended factory OEM parts and fluids in their repairs and services. Linear Automotive can service your Mercedes and check to see if your batteries are in optimum condition, so you won’t be left stranded. Your alternator, small voltage regulator, belts, and any another multi-point inspection items will all be examined to be sure your auto is in safe and good operating condition.
