HEATER BOOSTER
CODE 3JV
Heater booster
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
5-kW heater booster can be switched on whenever the engine is running. The on/off switch is situated to
the right of the light switch. When the heater booster is switched on, a red indicator light comes on in the
switch and a symbol lights up in the instrument cluster. After the heater booster has been switched off,
the coolant pump and the burner blower continue running for approximately three minutes, then switch
off automatically.
Benefits and Arguments
• Engine reaches operating temperature as quickly as possible
• Faster heater response
Since the thermal energy given off by a CRD engine may not always provide adequate heating in extremely
cold conditions, the heater booster helps the engine reach its operating temperature more quickly, and to
maintain it. This also means quicker heater response.

• Electrical system designed for more demanding requirements through increased power
• More reliable starting in winter
The AGM battery is designed for heavier-duty requirements, e.g., for frequent starting in short distance
operation (cycle resistant) or for supplying a large number of electrical special equipment items. It is
also recommended for operation in extreme climates, e.g., when the air conditioning in the passenger
compartment is used. The AGM battery is smaller and lighter than common batteries, due to the fact that
the energy density is increased.

ADAPTIVE ESP™
(ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM)
Adaptive ESP™
(Electronic
Stability Program)*
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
The Adaptive ESP (Electronic Stability Program)* is comprised of the following functions: EBD (electronic
brake force distribution) – This system helps to prevent the rear wheels from locking before the front
wheels when braking. ABS (anti-lock braking system) – Helps to prevent the wheels from locking. ASR
(acceleration skid control) – Regulates wheel spin by intervening in the engine management and by
braking the driving wheels. A deactivation switch allows engine intervention to be switched off at lower
speeds and the slip threshold to be raised. BAS (Brake Assist) – If an emergency braking situation is
detected, this system actively increases braking pressure up to the slip threshold. ERM (Electronic Roll
Over Mitigation) – This system helps to detect rollover tendencies during manoeuvres with low road
speed and high lateral acceleration. RMI (Roll Movement Intervention) – This system helps to detect
rollover tendencies in dynamic manoeuvres and in high-speed evasive manoeuvres with a high lateral
acceleration. LAC (Load Adaptive Control) – The system helps determine the gross vehicle weight and
supports the ESP function, depending on the vehicle load. EUC (Enhanced Understeering Control)
– The system helps to stabilize the vehicle in the event of heavy understeer. ESP (Electronic Stability
Program) – ESP interfaces with both the brake system and the engine management. It continuously
monitors the signals from the steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensors, lateral acceleration sensor
and yaw sensor, allowing it to assist the driver if instability is detected. In critical situations, ESP actively
intervenes in the engine management and brake system and assists the driver by generating braking
forces to restore directional stability. When ESP and ASR interventions are taking place, the ESP warning
light comes on in the speedometer. If acceleration skid control is deactivated by pressing the ASR-OFF
switch, the ESP warning light comes on continuously. If a driving situation occurs in which instability is
detected, ESP intervenes and ASR is switched back on again. At speeds over 59 km/h (37 mph), ASR
is always active, i.e., if the system has been deactivated, it is automatically reactivated when the vehicle
accelerates to a speed above 59 km/h (37 mph) and cannot be deactivated. When the speed falls below
59 km/h (37 mph), ASR is deactivated again and the warning light comes on. Even with ASR switched
off, the ESP warning light flashes when the tires have reached their adhesion limit.
Benefits and Arguments
• Enhances active safety in certain critical situations
• Improves track-holding and directional stability by automatically adjusting for load weight.
ESP enhances safety and ride comfort in certain critical situations and coordinates and enhances the
operation of ABS and ASR. Augmented by the new functions ERM, RMI, LAC and EUC, ESP provides a
high level of driver assistance and increases stability in critical dynamic situations.
Remarks
Adaptive ESP is standard on all models.
*No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited
by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESP warning lamp in the instrument cluster flashes, the
driver needs to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behaviour to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent
with conditions. Please always wear your seat belt. ESP is a trademark of DaimlerChrysler AG.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Five-speed
automatic
transmission with
Auto/Stick™
Details and Technology
The fully automated, electrohydraulic, five-speed transmission transfers power to the wheels via a torque
converter with integrated lockup clutch. The lockup clutch minimizes power loss or slip across the torque
converter and can engage in all gears, depending on engine speed and load. This system allows upshifts
to be performed smoothly and almost instantaneously. Selector position P activates a parking lock. This
selector position is the only position in which the ignition key can be released. The selector lever can only
be moved out of position P when the brake pedal is depressed and the ignition switched on. In selector
position D, the transmission always starts in first gear. The transmission control unit subsequently selects
the most appropriate gears automatically, with reference to engine speed and road speed. Upwards of
approximately 4 mph, it is not possible to change from D into R. When the transmission is in automatic
mode (D), it is possible to limit the shift range by nudging the selector lever towards – or + (Auto/Stick
feature). Each time the selector lever is nudged from position D toward –, the shift range is reduced
by one gear, conditions permitting. To prevent excessive engine speeds and maintain the power flow,
downshift requests which would cause the engine to overrev are not carried out. If the selector lever
is pressed towards – and held, the transmission changes down by several gears, conditions permitting.
Each time the selector lever is pressed toward +, the shift range moves up a gear, before finally the
transmission changes to automatic mode (D). If the selector lever is pressed toward + and held, the
transmission changes to automatic mode and shifts accordingly. Ratios: 1st gear, 3.59; 2nd gear, 2.18;
3rd gear, 1.40; 4th gear, 1.00; 5th gear, 0.83; Overall ratio 4.32; Reverse gear 3.16.
Benefits and Arguments
• Smooth shifting
• Long service life and high reliability
• Low maintenance costs
• Low fuel consumption
Features of the five-speed automatic transmission include smooth shifting, well-spaced ratios, long life,
high reliability, low maintenance costs.
Remarks
CAUTION: The parking lock is not an alternative to the parking brake! Therefore, the parking brake
should always be applied when parking.

compared with non-tinted windows and by approximately 85% compared with green-tinted windows.
Approximately 99% of ultraviolet radiation is blocked. If a rear heavy-duty air conditioning system is
fitted (Passenger Van only), its effectiveness is increased. The tinted glass also conceals the passenger
compartment/load compartment from view. At the same time, the tinting also enhances the look of the

conditioning
system
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
This system consists of the standard heating and ventilation system plus integrated air conditioning
(maximum cooling output approximately 7 kW). The automatic temperature control maintains the
temperature selected via the rotary temperature control. A sensor regulates the intensity of the cooling.
When the air conditioning is switched on, the fan automatically comes on at speed one. Speeds two, three
and four can be selected manually. In high ambient temperatures and high humidity, the interior can be
cooled quickly by selecting fan speed four and air recirculation. The air conditioning can be switched on
and off by means of a switch on the instrument panel. System specification includes a combination filter
and residual engine heat utilization. The combination filter removes particulate matter and fine particles
from the incoming air. The filter has a service life of approximately 48,000 km or 36 months (whichever
occurs first) under normal conditions.
Benefits and Arguments
• A desirable interior temperature is maintained even in hot weather
• Automatic temperature control
• Integrated filter protects against dust and pollen
Air conditioning improves the comfort and well-being of both driver and passengers. Dehumidification
prevents fogging in cold, damp weather. The desired interior temperature is maintained at a constant level
regardless of ambient temperature and solar radiation. The filter protects against allergic reactions by
preventing pollen, dust and odours from entering the vehicle.
Remarks
Air conditioning is standard on all models.

CODE HB9
AUXILIARY HEATER (AIR)
Auxiliary electric
hot air heater
Details and Technology
The heater booster consists of radiator elements (fins) which are fitted with PTC (Positive Temperature
Coefficient) resistors and are held together in a mounting frame by spring clips. When an electric voltage
is applied to the heater elements, an electric current flows through the PTC resistors, which heat up. The
fins absorb the heat and radiate it to the passing air. As soon as the engine is running, the electric heater
booster steadily increases its power from 0 to 100% in the space of 28 seconds. The heater booster
is situated in close proximity to the air outlets, to keep heat losses to a minimum. The warmed air is
circulated into the interior via the vehicle heater/blower system.
Switch-on conditions:
Coolant temperature < 80°C (176°F) and ambient temperature < 10°C (50°F).
Switch-off conditions:
Coolant temperature > 80°C (176°F) and ambient temperature > 13°C (55°F).
Benefits and Arguments
• Aids quick defrosting of the windows
• Quick defogging
• Quicker warming of the interior
• Environmentally friendly, robust, long service life
The electric PTC heater booster is environmentally friendly, since no emissions are generated. Despite its
lightweight, compact design it is robust, has a long service life and is highly efficient. The PTC resistors
are self-regulating, to prevent overheating. The heater booster assists with quick defrosting of the
windows and helps to prevent fogging. Allows the interior to be heated more quickly for greater comfort
on cold days.

Details and Technology
The high-performance rear air conditioning system available on Passenger Van is fitted in the front
sunroof aperture over the rear compartment. It is driven by its own compressor and has a maximum
cooling performance of 14 kW. The roof-mounted unit also extends some way into the interior of the
vehicle. The air conditioning system supplements the cooling provided by (automatically controlled air
conditioning system), though this boosting function can be independently activated and adjusted. The
system operates only in recirculation mode. It is controlled by a separate switch, which allows three fan
speeds to be selected, and by a continuously variable temperature selector. The cooled air is supplied
via adjustable outlets on the underside of the roof duct. The airflow direction can be individually adjusted
and, if desired, the air supply can be shut off completely. The roof duct reduces the interior height of the
vehicle. Two or three interior lights, depending on wheelbase, are also integrated in the roof duct. They
are switched on and off by the door contact switch or individually at each light.
Benefits and Arguments
• Optimized interior climate in rear section
• Enhanced comfort and well-being for passengers in the rear
• Improved interior air quality
Optimized interior climate due to additional cooling of the air supply to the rear compartment. This
system is particularly recommended for vehicles used in very hot climates. Rear passengers can
individually adjust the air outlets for improved comfort and well-being. A pollen and particulate filter
improves the interior air quality.

BI-XENON HEADLAMPS
CODE LM3
Bi-xenon (HID)
headlamps with
cornering light
function
Details and Technology
The bi-xenon headlamp light source is a gas-discharge light which produces a luminous arc in a quartz
bulb filled with a gas mixture. The main beam is produced using the full light beam, while the low beam
is produced by moving a shutter between the bulb and the lens, so the long-range portion of the light is
blocked off, thus preventing dazzle.
Sensor-controlled dynamic range adjustment automatically counteracts changes in the angle of the
headlamps due to changes in the attitude of the vehicle when braking or accelerating, or due to changes
in payload. In addition to the normal road illumination provided by the low beam headlamps, at speeds up
to 40 km/h (25 mph) a second bulb in the headlamp unit comes on automatically – when the direction
indicator is operated and the steering wheel is turned beyond a certain angle – on the side corresponding
to the direction in which the driver is signalling. This light may also be activated when cornering at speeds
up to approx. 69 km/h (43 mph) (with low beam on/direction indicator off), depending on steering angle and
corner radius.
So that the lighting change is not too sudden, the additional light is dimmed up gradually. When in
reversing to the right, the left hand cornering light comes on at the front. When reversing to the left, the
right hand cornering light comes on. The fog lamps are integrated in the bumper.
Benefits and Arguments
• Significantly increases range in main beam mode
• Wider illumination of the road margins in low beam mode
• Automatic headlamp range adjustment prevents oncoming traffic from being dazzled
• Extended vision when cornering
• Reduced accident risk when making a turn in the dark
The bi-xenon headlamps allow pedestrians and other obstacles to be spotted sooner.

activated by means of the rotary light switch. Like the low beam and main beam, the fog lamp is corrected
by means of the headlamp range adjustment. In conjunction with bi-xenon headlamps, the fog lamps are
integrated into the bumper (upper right).

SPEED CONTROL
Speed control
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
Speeds upward of 29 km/h (18 mph) can be stored using the speed control stalk on the steering column.
Speed control then maintains a constant speed.
Operating the speed control stalk:
Up: the current or a higher speed is stored
Down: the current or a lower speed is stored
Pull back: resumes the last stored speed
Push forward: speed control function is switched off
Speed control can also be switched off by operating the brake pedal.
Benefits and Arguments
• Constant speeds result in fuel-efficient driving
Maintaining a constant speed enhances ride comfort and ensures relaxed driving, particularly when
towing a trailer, since the vehicle automatically adheres to a specified speed. Maintenance of a constant
speed also may help to save fuel, as well as reducing driver stress since there is no need to operate the
accelerator pedal as long as the system is activated.

Light and rain
sensor

Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
Combined light and rain sensor fitted in the base of the interior mirror. Depending on the light switch
position, the low beam headlamps are switched on when it gets dark, when the vehicle enters a tunnel,
or when rain or snow are falling. The light sensor continuously compares the ambient light level outside
the vehicle with a set value and, when appropriate, switches the headlamps on and off. Depending on the
position of the windshield wiper combination stalk, the windshield wipers are also automatically activated
when conditions require. The sensor aims an infrared light beam at the windshield at a defined angle.
The intensity with which the light is reflected back depends on how wet the windshield is. Based on
the amount of reflected light, the system adjusts the wiper interval to anything from a single wipe to
continuous wiping. The sensing zone is heated to help prevent ice and condensation forming.
Benefits and Arguments
• Automatically controlled optimal wiping interval
• Low beam headlamps switched on and off automatically
Stress-free driving is ensured at all times, even in poor weather, since the driver does not have to adjust the
wiping interval manually. If only isolated drops are falling, wiping is not triggered as soon. The ideal wiping
interval is ensured under all weather conditions. The headlamps are switched on and off automatically in
response to changes in the ambient light level outside the vehicle.

CODE XAG
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
ParkSense operates on the echo sounder principle. The electronic control unit uses ultrasonic signals
detected by sensors in the front and rear bumpers to measure the distance between the vehicle and an
obstacle. When reversing, the system monitors the area to the rear and front of the vehicle. When moving
forward, only the area to the front of the vehicle is monitored. The system is activated automatically
when the ignition is switched on and the handbrake lever is released. It switches off when the speed
of the vehicle exceeds approximately 17 km/h (11 mph) and back on when the speed falls below this
threshold again. The system monitors the area between 279 millimetres (11 inches) and 990 milllimetres
(39 inches) from the front, and between 279 millimetres (11 inches) and 1778 millimetres (70 inches)
from the rear. As soon as an obstacle is detected within these areas, the visual (yellow and red LEDs)
and audible warnings are activated. As the vehicle approaches an obstacle in its path, the visual signals
are the first to be activated. As soon as the first red segment lights up, the audible warning is activated
too. This sounds intermittently to begin with, then becomes continuous when the minimum distance is
reached. The double warning display for the front area is located in the centre of the instrument panel,
with two separate displays for the rear area integrated in the exterior mirrors. PTS can be switched on
and off manually by means of a switch in the centre console. When PTS is switched off, an indicator light
comes on in the switch.
Benefits and Arguments
• Facilitates precise parking, with the help of visual and audible warnings
• Makes parking easier in tight situations
The parking aid facilitates precise parking and helps the driver to judge distances from obstacles in front of
and behind the vehicle.

HEATING/COOLING
AUXILIARY HEATER REMOTE CONTROL
CODE XG2
Radio remote
control for
auxiliary heater
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
The radio remote control can be used to switch the auxiliary heaters on and off. It has a maximum range of
approximately 594 metres (650 yards). This range can be reduced by proximity to interference sources,
by any large obstruction between the remote control and the vehicle, by unfavourable positioning of the
remote control or if it is used from inside a closed space. Maximum heater operating time is 60 minutes.
When the auxiliary heater is switched off using the remote control, the burner blower and the coolant
pump continue running for approximately three minutes.
Benefits and Arguments
• Remote control offers even greater comfort and convenience
The auxiliary heater can be switched on and off over long distances by means of two buttons on the radio
remote control. By the time the driver enters the vehicle, the windows will be clear and the interior and
engine are preheated.
Remarks
The remote control is available with Front Auxiliary Heater (HDB) and Auxiliary Water Heater (XG3). The
remote control is included with Auxiliary Heating Group (AMJ).

AUXILIARY HEATER, WATER w/TIMER
Water auxiliary
heater with timer,
10 kW
Picture shows pre-production model.
Picture shows pre-production model.
Details and Technology
The dual-function water auxiliary heater operates both as a heater booster and as an auxiliary (stationary)
heater. The booster (10 kW) mode is activated automatically as a function of coolant temperature
whenever the engine is switched on. An indicator light comes on whenever the booster function is active.
When the engine has been switched off, the heater booster continues running for approximately two
minutes. The auxiliary heater (5 kW) can be switched on by means of a switch with indicator light. The
indicator light comes on whenever this function is active. Maximum heating time is anything up to two
hours depending on, amongst other things, coolant temperature. The auxiliary heater continues to run
for 15 minutes after the engine has been switched off. If both the auxiliary heater and heater booster
functions are activated, the auxiliary heater has priority. After the auxiliary heater function has been
switched off, either manually or automatically, the heater booster is activated automatically.
Benefits and Arguments
• Quick warming of the interior to a pleasant temperature
• Increased heating output aids quick defrosting of the windows
This system is particularly recommended for use in cold climates. The very high thermal efficiency of the
diesel engines means that at extremely low ambient temperatures their thermal energy may not always
be sufficient to guarantee quick heating and a comfortable level of warmth in the cab. The auxiliary
heating function allows the interior to be warmed even before the engine is started. The driver can
therefore step into a pleasantly warm vehicle straight away.
Remarks
The heater booster/auxiliary heater functions cannot be operated if the fuel level falls below 15 litres
(3.3 imperial gallons). Included with available Auxiliary Heating Group (AMJ).
