Air compressor linked to ignition in '99 SL 500

Asked by Apr 19, 2012 at 06:29 AM about the 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL 500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My AC intermittent and the direction controls not functioning. Was told it was a compressor problem and
the ignition needed to be replaced in order to get AC fully functioning. After paying $1400 the problem
continues. I also did not receive a new key but seems like if ignition was replaced I would need new key.
Does this sound correct?   

1 Answer

Hello, The way you describe the problem, has nothing to do with ignition, the relay under dash need replacing. Good luck.\Mike
