Hi , I have Ssangyong Rexton 2005 year , Petrol 3.2 L Motor .Only 90,000 Km`s . Problem I have it has decided to just run in 1 st Gear .

However , now & then it will run as normal in all Gear range.& sequential . I replaced Gear Lever switch , which includes console Gear shift. New.

I know it will not change Gears when I put into Drive . It will jerk & i do not like doing that . If It goes into Drive gently then I know it will be normal

I have had a Code Reader put on.Two Codes came up as : P240C & P1850 .But don`t know what they represent . Anyone had this happen or can help with this ? We think maybe another faulty switch or bad connection

Hi Ken does it go faster if you pump the accelerater? If so check your tail light s one could be shorting out and the computer goes into limp mode.

hi ken i had a friend with the same gearbox as yours and his also jammed in first on a wkend away and car was stuck in small garage in country town. was something to do with a filter/sensor on the lower outside of the gearbox which can be subject to mud and a lack of service. mercedes were helpful to the garage and when located i believe it was not an expensive fix. will try to get more info for you.

Hi I have a 2003 rexton I was wondering if I can retro fit cruise control into it it's a 3.2 petrol 5 Spd manual? cheers

not happy jan

hi the basic answer is yes you can but at what expense? would need to fit a genuine ssangyong cruise control unit and probably use a good auto electrician unless you are suitably skilled. playing with electrics on these vehicles can be complicated and risky so i probably wouldnt bother and would save my money to update to a newer rexton with cruise fitted.

HI , put a new battery in my 2005 rexton 2.7 xdi and now the fuel gauge is not working tried did what was suggested by taking the leads off and putting them back but nothing is there another way you can fix this other than dropping the fuel tank?

not happy jan
not happy jan  

hi don assume you have checked the fuel gauge fuse and unclear if you have refuelled and driven vehicle much since. try refuelling and driving as have known needle gauges to stick when dropped to rest position. also check fuel sender unit electrical connection especially at the engine end as may have become dislodged during the fitting of the new battery

Don
Don  

checked sender all good drilled a small hole above the fuel needle and moved it up to half way and turn it on but nothing all new fuses full tank travelled about 250 k's still nothing Thanks for your suggestions but it look as it might be a sparkie's job.

Hi we have had a rexton 2006 for about 18 months, just after we got it, we were driving along at 100kph and the speedo goes up randomly to 140kph, we fix this with disconnecting the battery. This problem was on and off for about 6 months, now the engine warning light comes on the temperature gauge moves up to hot, this resets itself without disconnecting the battery. This happened multiple times on a long trip and every now and again when this happens the aircon stops working but again starts up when the engine light goes out and the temp gauge goes back to normal. Anyone have an answer please? Rebecca

Did This work for you? i have the same issue! but my Temp Gauge goes down when Chk engine comes on and A/C stops blowing cold air, after i slow down a bit it resets itself and back to Normal, and if i stop, turn the car off and then on again it wont do it for the rest of the trip.

Bec

Hi Kenneth, at the moment the issue has not come back, I am hoping to get the radiator and thermostats done on the next service, which is about 4 months away. You May get it sorted before I do. It's very frustrating these intermittent faults! please let me know if you do get it sorted.

My Rexton has a constant amp draw of .35a and I have traced the source to the memory. if I remove the Memory fuse the draw ceases, but can I run the vehicle without the fuse as I don't know what else runs off the same circuit. Could it be a faulty BCM not shutting down?

I dont know. ask an auto elec that question

I also found the same issue, i went through 3 different batteries before finding the issue, i honestly don’t know what the memory is for but im driving without this fuse, if you could please enlighten me and let me know if you found a permanent fix to this or if you are also driving without the Fuse!

My 270xdi not starting up after headgascet was replaced. Any ideas?

not happy jan

Hi your question raises multiple questions about why this work was done ,how much of the motor was pulled down, was it done by a home mechanic or a specialist in engine rebuilding etc. Cant really give a good answer without knowing all the facts. After a significant engine rebuild it is essential to completely reset the engine timing arrangements and if the engine wont start it is usually due to incorrect timing setup, if you used a qualified mechanic or engine recond then take it back and get him to fix it. If you did it yourself then ask yourself why you thought you had the ability to work on a mercedes diesel engine, then do some research and take it to a good engine reconditioner and ask him very nicely if he can find what you have done wrong.

I have a 2004 Rexton 3.2 L.

The '4wd H' button does nothing when it's pressed and the '4wd L' button flashes along with the '4wd Check' light when I press that.

I am looking to drive in snow this week and was hoping for a possible quick fix.

Any suggestions/ ideas on what the cause could be?

Thanks

Hi Luke

I have a 2005 Rexton 3.2 manual and have a similar problem that when pressing the 4wd H or L no lights light up in the dash.

Were you able to sort out your problem?

Do you know what was wrong?

Thanks

David
David  

Hi I might be too late to answer this question but adding you are referring to an auto box Rexton then 4 WD engagement is done in neutral . Press low button light on dash should flash and low should engage with a slight but firm thump. Same procedure for disengage ...they do stick with lack of use

..repeat procedure until low engages. If it does not then low motor is stuck or solenoid is stuck. Check underneath car for problem around gearbox ....

David
David  

Hi sounds like it's due to a sticking low range selection issue often caused by lack of routine use. Try selecting low range by first selecting neutral then push the low range button wait 20 seconds then push high range then wait 20 seconds then repeat until the solenoids finally clicks in. Failing that then it's a trip to the service dept to check and relive your lowxrange selection system.

Hi every one i have a rexton 2005 manual the engin light become on most time and water temperature going up any body coldn't fix it can you tell me if you had this problem how fixed it?

not happy jan
not happy jan  

engine light on is a result of a problem with the cooling system so focus on that. Same as any other car check radiator , both hoses , thermostat and water pump or take to a good mechanic or natrad. After eleven years likely to be water pump but other items may need attention also. kevin 0428194919

I have had an 04 Rexton for about 10 yrs. Had this problem for most of them. As soon as I restarted it was fine for a while. I just changed temp sensor and it fixed it. Was planning to do it myself ages ago but couldn't find where it went. Mechanic just did it. Cheap fix.

I had the same problem so I changed top and bottom radiator hoses and thermostat and have not had a problem since have done 6000k's after

most often with the rextons its failure of the coolant temperature sensor witch is located on the engine block pretty much behind the power steering pump in a little gap under the intake manifold IF u have visible signs of over heating like steam or bubbling of your coolant solution it would be thermostat witch is located right hand side of the engine block in the thermostat housing situated pretty much behind the alternator / under the turbo BUT - if your engine isnt showing signs of overheat and your gauge is showing as max heat or any other weird sort of behaviour its usualy electrical fault from the coolant temp sensor - hope this helps

I did the same. Had the sensor but couldn't find where to put it. Mechanic found it under the manifold. Right side of engine up high.

Hi all , found the sensor , you need a mirror. And a hard thing thing to replace , and what's worse when I did replace it it didn't solve the problem . Temp gauge still goes through the roof . I think it could be thermostat or thermo fans causing the problems any clues would be appreciated ..

Check your alternator wire connectors this is the one controlling your heater relay. Check the function of your alternator.

hello

i own rexton 2005 2.7 xdi, during a quiet driving the engine shut down and check engine light turned on.

could not start the car again, the light was still on.

after few hours i managed to start it again and all was ok.

happened twice already.

what could it be?

not happy jan

HI GILL75 , dont know how many klms your car has or the general mechanical condition so comments are general only. check the EGR valve and the glow plugs as both can be troublesome when klms high. if your vehicle has a water filter fitted to the fuel line ( SOME MODELS DO) it will cause the situation you mention when it is full so needs to be changed and a new fuel filter fitted. If vehicle doesnt have an in line water filter can be fitted after market for a couple of hundred dollars and in conjunction with a diesel fuel additive every couple of tanks your problem should be resolved.
