About Gearbox ECU
The C Class Mercedes-Benz gear box ECU (sometimes known as a Transmission Control Unit) is an essential part of the gear box in an automatic vehicle, and monitors and controls the gear changes and transmission. This electrical part communicates with the engine ECU using a series of sensors that are positioned at strategic points in the vehicle. Using the information given to it by the sensors and the engine ECU it calculates when to change the vehicle’s gears to improve vehicle performance and minimise fuel consumption. These sensors tell the C Class Mercedes-Benz gear box ECU what speed the vehicle is driving at, whether it is driving uphill or downhill, the temperature of the oil and the amount of torque generated by the torque converter.
Some vehicles have a combined C Class Mercedes-Benz gear box ECU and engine ECU, known as a powertrain control module (PCM).
Damage to the C Class Mercedes-Benz gear box ECU is likely down to the solenoids – magnetic wire coils that transport electric current. If your vehicle experiences problems with the C Class Mercedes-Benz gear box ECU you may first notice a warning code displayed in your vehicle. If ignored, the gear box can fail resulting in an inability to change gears.
Mercedes-Benz C Class trivia
- The Beckhams were criticised when their 17-year son Brooklyn was spotted driving around London in a brand new C Class Mercedes Benz. The youngster was learning to drive apparently, but in that car and at the age, his insurance premium would have been around £6,500.
- When the C Class was first launched, it was called the “Baby Benz” due to its position at the bottom of the list of Mercedes passenger vehicles. The C Class remained the “entry-level” Mercedes until the introduction of the A-Class.
- The very first C Class was built in Germany and rolled off the production line on the 1st of June 1993. It wasn't until July 2000 that the first of the second generation models were produced.
- The Mercedes-Benz C Class is built in more countries than any other model of Mercedes. As you'd expect, they roll off the production line in Germany, but also in Brazil, China, South Africa, India, the US, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
- When it comes to aerodynamics, Mercedes-Benz leads the industry. The C Class Coupe has a drag coefficient of 0.26, one of the best in the world. That makes the C Class Coupe one of the most fuel-efficient cars in the world too.
