Hey guys , I searched the forum but couldn't find anything on this topic , maybe it's under a different thread title
anyways I really like the look of the electronic trip cluster and would love to do that , but what do I need for that /
did anyone do it , I've seen few of them with that but I know that was only Europe models that came with that , so I am just curios what parts do I have to look for and also the biggest thing is if it can be done
thanks
here's a pic of the cluster I'm looking for , if anyone has any I'm rely interested thanks

There is a harness, module and center console control panel that goes with it.

Never retrofitted one, but I hear it can be done with out going completely over the top.

A compete setup sold in the past few months. Was a few $$'s as I remember...

Might dig in the parts for sale section some, should be there for reference @ this point.

Thanks a lot Jono , so it can be done , that's great news , my next question is
where can I take my central console trim to get it cut professionally for fitting that command as it is special aftermarket fiber glass

Oooo...you grabbed that car.. Sharp interior!

I need to speak with a friend who is Great with carbon interior.. I'm theory one should be able to Very carefully drill/cut...but my worry is how Prone is CF to cracking.
I'll find out for you tomorrow:)

I remember seeing your car too. Is the trim carbon or fiberglass? I've tried working real carbon a bit. It doesn't cut cleanly due to the fibers. I'm curious but pessimistic about it.

As Jono said... it can be done, but it will probably take you forever to source the parts needed. Have to find the entire instrument cluster (note the clock is relocated to the center) for a V8 model, along with the control module, wiring harness, and switch/controller. And you'll probably only find the parts in Europe. Cutting the hole in your console trim will be the absolute easiest part of the upgrade.

That is a good find! Unfortunately you still need more parts. That setup is for a non-V8 car, with mechanical speedometer. The V8 models use electronic speedometers. For the fuel/oil/temp/tach cluster, the oil+temp will work fine, fuel can be adjusted to work with the E500 tank sender, but the tach won't work with the V8 RPM signal (wrong frequency). You miiiight be able to get a custom converter box to make the tach work - maybe - I don't know. Based on the EPC, the same control module is used on all models with a 'coding plug' for different engines; you may be able to get the correct one for the E500 (009-545-59-32 or 013-545-02-32) in place of the one with this kit. I also don't know if the included wiring harness will work on the E500.

Bottom line - this would be an awesome kit for the proper 6-cyl car. Based on a reverse lookup of the coding plug p/n in the pics, I think this will fit a 124.091/.291 wagon? But I also don't know if it's worth trying to convert this to work on an E500...

The 126 cluster is physically larger... I don't think any of those parts would work on a 124. Jono would know for sure though.

Yes I was thinking Maybe the harnes as it is a v 8 and maybe just get the cluster Gages out from the w126 and fit them in the w124 cluster , but I get it now they might have a difrent fitment all trough out , so the only one that would be plug and play almost would be if the donor is 500e or a 420 right?

Correct. The EPC seems to indicate that option (SA code 11321) may not have been offered on the 124.034 though (400E/E420); so it's possible the only plug+play donors would be from another E500E.

now is anyone here on the forum that has that cluster and does not like it , if so I want it:D:D:D:D:D:D
no I wil do what ever it needs to change to that
I first so this Cluster 8 or 9 years back on that black beauty with Oregon plates and I really loved it , back then I had a 500e from 92 with 150k salvage and I promised my self if I'll ever have 500e prestine this would be one thing I would want on my car , ]
so if anyone can tell me what I really need besides the parts I have already ( not yet being shipped tomorrow from Germany ) I would really apreciate

You still need the 8 cylinder specific tachometer cluster (left). In Germany is a company called VDO GLEICHAUF, they did some conversion for me. They can perform adaptations of the tachometer as well as reprinting the dials in absolute original layout. I changed one of my evo tachs to 10krpm as well let them adapt my original E60 speedo and odometer to the new 2.65 rear axle ratio. It's a bit costly but absolutely well done. Plug & play as of factory

The harness is a different part number:

124.091 (SA 11321/38) - Harness p/n = 124-540-61-10 <-- This appears to fit all 6-cyl 124 chassis

124.036 (SA 11321/42) - Harness p/n = 124-543-37-27 <-- This is unique to the 124.036 chassis

I have no idea what the differences are, or if the 6-cyl harness could be adapted to work on an E500E.

01-25-2017, 07:40 PM
You can ask a dealer to check inventory worldwide, but I suspect this harness has been NLA for many years. Try Tom Hanson at the MB Classic Center.

Since the trip computer option was never offered in USA, to find used parts you'll have to troll European / German / Japanese / Russian eBay listings and forums. Lots of work!!

It's a preheater, made by Webasto for Mercedes. Basically it's a small petrol engine that heats the coolant water. It starts the interior fan to spread cosy warmth inside the car. The display in the centre console is a timer, with which you can program two different times when to start the heater. Also you can turn it on directly from there.

It's connected via fuel lines to the car's fuel lines/gas tank, and to the cooling system, with it's own water pump to swoosh the water around. Also it's connected to the HVAC to start the ventilation inside.

You must have preheaters in the States for sure? Webasto is the biggest name in Sweden and Europe methinks. Our company cars (VW's) have them from factory for instance. Press the button on the remote 30 minutes before you go and go out and sit in a warm car with dry windows.

Do you know why? You've got cold places in the US. And it's not that we have polar bears roaming the streets of Sweden, but it's quite common here (with preheaters, not polar bears...)

I think I'll keep it, don't know if the burner even runs (the Ebay seller I got it from said that it did, but still), and I think the kit needs a proper overhaul anyway, it does look quite worn (it's been living under a car for many years). Plus, I paid what I think is to much for it, around €250 IIRC.

I'm (probably) not gonna install it for the very same reason you have, my car is not seeing any winter, plus, I've installed the residual heater which keeps the interior warm when I'm leaving the car parked for a while. Suits me fine if I take it out for a spin off-season or during the chilly fall/spring.

So why am I keeping it? I'd love to restore the kit and get it working one day, and then decide what to do with it. I just love fixing such things up...

I think forum member David Hendy (located in northeast USA) had a Webasto for sale, removed from a Euro-spec 500E which he parted out a few years back. I don't know if he had the full system including wiring / controller / etc, or if it's even still available, but you could ping him and ask.

Installation would be a NIGHTMARE though; much more effort than the trip computer.

And it will be way cheaper than shipping the big heavy box I have in my garage over the pond.

And yea, no easy task installing it. We actually had a Webasto in a donor 400E that I first thought of ripping out. I dropped that idea quite quickly.

I believe you I know it's not gonna be easy , and I don't know if that will be a go , especially as I will most likely never use it , it's more for the looks and to have that neat option , if I'll find a good deal I'll get it , if not it's not as inportant as the reiserchner retrofit ,
the only reason I'm thinking to do it is , you know that my mechanic said he found oil in the colant , so I had him flush the system , it turned out it was not oil , it was sealer , the evaporator its leaking so the previous owner just put a sealer in the coolant to stop the leak , and he put the sealer back afterwards but still leaks so what I'll have to do most likely before spring when I start driving the car I will have to go trough the the nightmare of taking the dashboard out and do that
and that's when I'm intending to do either the reiserchner only or both
does this make any sense ?

Here is what I found about the reiserchner , thaught to add it on the tread for future references if anyone wants to know what it does and how to work with it

The Reiserechner provides us reliably with 12 important information about the driving operation and the route. The indicator unit is housed in the instrument cluster instead of the clock / speedometer combination. The keyboard for programming is located in the center console. Part of the information is always calculated without the driver's assistance and is always ready to call. For the rest, programming by the driver is necessary before driving. Thus, for example, the travel computer can warn us of speed transitions if we have programmed a prescribed speed limit
After entering the necessary data before the start of the journey, the travel computer calculates the following information divided into 4 areas:


Time


Desired arrival time at the destination
Actual arrival time at the destination
Past time since start of trip
path


Remaining route to the route
Distance traveled since the beginning of the journey
Line which can still be covered with the existing tank contents (with the same average consumption as before)
speed


Necessary average speed to reach the target at the desired time
Average speed
Acoustic signal when reaching the preset speed
consumption


Average consumption since start of the journey
Average consumption during the last 5 min
Current fuel consumption
service




Control buttons Traveling computer in the center console
Control buttons


The travel computer is operated via 8 buttons in the center console, which are partially occupied with multiple functions.


- Select short-range operation (displayed in the display "K") - Delete saved values ​​- Enter 1000 digits


- Display time information - Enter 100 digit and switch through


- Retrieve route information - Enter 10 digits and switch them on


- Select long-range mode (indicated in the display "L") - Delete saved values ​​- Enter 1 values


- Press the programming key - before entering the number


- Retrieve and switch speed information


- Retrieve consumption information and switch it on


- Press the input key after entering the number


The travel computer is ready for operation at key position 2 in the ignition lock. For certain functions, the correct time of the digital clock must be set in the instrument cluster (see below).


Short-distance and long-distance operation (K & L operation)


It is possible to select between two operating modes. They are indicated by a K or L in the view window:


K - short-range operation


L - long-distance operation


In K mode, the displayed values ​​refer to the current run. In L mode, the values ​​of the previous trips and the current trip are combined to form a total display. The values ​​are calculated for both K and L operations. For example, the entire driving distance of a day trip, holiday trip or a month can be divided into several partial routes. With appropriate programming, the values ​​of the total distance can then be calculated and displayed in L mode and the values ​​of the partial distance in K mode.


K operation


If the key in the steering lock is turned to position 2, the travel computer is initially switched to K mode (K in the sight window flashes) and the arrow WALK TO THE GOAL lights up. If the key is pressed, the values ​​stored in K mode are automatically deleted after 1000 m travel. The calculation of new values ​​takes place from the start of the journey. Now certain information can be retrieved. If all information is to be computed, a number input must be made for TIME ARRIVAL, ROUTE TO GOAL, SPEED LIMIT. Stored values ​​are not cleared when the key is briefly pressed or when the key is pressed before the numeric input (K in the viewing window stops flashing).


Notes After an interruption of the journey, the key must be pressed each time before the journey, otherwise the previously stored values ​​are automatically deleted. The values ​​stored in K mode can also be cleared manually. To do this, press the button until 0:00 h appears in the visual window and the arrow TIME lights up from START. Manual deletion of the values ​​is required if the calculations are to be made from the start of the journey and also the numbers for TIME ARRIVAL REQUIREMENT and ROUTE TO GOAL are entered.


L operation


In key position 2 in the steering lock, press the key to switch to L mode. Values ​​stored in L mode are not automatically deleted. They are combined with values ​​of the current trip. By manually deleting the values ​​stored in L mode, you can determine from which point in time the calculations are restarted. To do this, press the button until 0: 00h appears in the view window and the arrow TIME AB START lights up.


Note:


If the values ​​stored in K mode are not to be cleared during L operation, briefly press the key before switching to L mode.


Saved values ​​manually


Press and hold the key - values ​​are deleted in K mode.


Press and hold down the key - Values ​​are deleted in L mode.


Key or press and hold until 0:00 h appears in the visual window and the arrow TIME AB START lights up.


Get information


Press the,, or button for the desired information. Press the corresponding button repeatedly until the arrow of the desired information lights up. The following information can be calculated and retrieved by entering a number:


• TIME TO START


• PATH

After a lot of search I did not find any detail on the conversion on the 500 e ,
found one to our brothers mbworld , done on the w126 , I think the principals will be the same preaty much , it's just that I will have to do some modifications as the harness might be a little difrent then the 500e
here is the link http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126-s-se-sec-sel-sd/1662747-reiserechner-trip-computer-installation-gen2-w126.html

Hello, have you started to install your trip computer?
I'm doing the same right now in my 320TE (E500 body), and it is a bit difficult to be honest. But i do not know much about electronic stuff. It is some of the contacts in the wire harness that i can't really understand where it shall lead to.

I'm sorry for the bad english writing.

Maybe this link will help you a bit further:

Hi guys,

I recently acquired a '92 500E. The car has Reiserechner, and basically it works just fine. However, the lighting of the indication arrows is almost invisible. It should be much brighter.
Is this a known issue?

Thanks for your 0.02$!

I have never seen it but it might just be a bulb which has an element that has degraded.

It is an easy service to replace and requires no disassembly of the cluster (you only have to pull the cluster from the dash). In fact, you can buy LEDs for the cluster which are brighter and will last longer. While you are back there, you might want to replace your cluster illumination bulbs as well (they're at the top in back) since these can get hot and melt plastic.

Hi Robert,

Thanks! I'll pull the instrument cluster and see what's what.
Also noticed there's a bulb for the direction indicator blown, so I'll have to do it anyway.

Keep you guys posted.
