6

Radiator Blind Components
1 - Electrical connector 2 - Switchover valve 3 - Radiator shutter control module (N56)

7

Blind Function
• Controlled by Passenger SAM (N10/11) • Inputs - vehicle speed - coolant temperature • Operating parameters - blinds close upon start up (if engine is cold) - up to 50 mph blinds open (if engine is warm) - above 50 mph blinds closed - above 207º F blinds open regardless of vehicle speed

Instrument Cluster

13

Instrument Cluster Legend
1 - Left turn signal indicator lamp 2 - ABS / ESP warning lamp 3 - Speedometer 4 - Multifunction display 5 - Distance warning lamp (only with DTR) 6 - Right turn signal indicator lamp 7 - Coolant temperature display with warning lamp 8 - Tachometer with ABS malfunction indicator lamp, high beam indicator lamp, seat belt warning lamp, restraint systems warning lamp 9 - Selector lever position with transmission range display 10 - Clock with preglow indicator, engine diagnosis and brake indicator lamps 11 - Fuel tank level display with warning lamp 12 - Instrument lighting, reset button

14

Instrument Cluster Changes
• Designed using back-lighting technology • Digital fuel gauge • Digital vehicle temperature gauge • Analog type clock • Circular multi-function display • Separate mileage and gear position display • Some indicator functions have been relocated

15

Crash Concepts
• Bolted front and rear modules • Headlamp housing with repair fixtures • Energy-absorbing bumpers with protective strips replaceable from the outside

16

Front & Rear Modules
• Prevents damage to frame in minor collisions • Shorter repair times • Lower repair costs

17

Headlamps & Bumper Strips
• Headlamp fixtures have predetermined fracture points • Protective strips easily replaced

18

W211 Flatwire Cables

19

Flatwire Application
• Application 211 - door panel harness (illumination) - headliner harness (illumination) • Repair procedures - currently non-repairable - do not hang components from flatwire - no color codes, uses circuit I.D. number printed 20 mm from connector ends

20

Flatwire Construction
• Construction - flexible printed cable - 200 micron thickness, 5.5 mm wide = 20A - stacking layers increases amperage rating of cable - new lamella style contacts

21

Flatwire Advantages & Disadvantages
• Advantages - manufacturing cost reduction - production fully automated - reduced installation space (less bulky) - 20 to 30% weight savings - improved connection contacts (better reliability) - fewer connections - future designs will allow control module integration in flatwire harness • Disadvantages - fragile - not repairable at this time

Audio System

26

System Highlights
• Audio head units - Audio 50 - COMAND (not available at launch) • Audio Gateway - 2 versions - with and without LOGIC 7 (base version = without LOGIC 7) • Media Oriented Systems Transport Bus (MOST) - replaces D2B - offers increased gross data transfer rate • Audio Gateway functions - AM/FM reception - audio amplifier - interface between MOST and CAN B - central diagnostic interface for MOST components
27

Audio 50 Head Unit
• Initial head unit for vehicle launch • Different design • Produced by Harman Becker • CD drive for audio - 6 disc changer optional

28

Audio 50 Controls
• Volume adjustment similar to A/C control ring • Incorporates softkeys for menu selections • Push control knob for scrolling and selecting

29

Audio Cassette Access
• Open button • Closed manually

30

Compact Disc Access
• Push button to open • Push button to close • Storage / CD location

31

CD Changer
• 1 single insert slot • 2 CD eject button • Plays 6 discs + 1 in head unit • LED’s indicates CD in changer

32

LOGIC 7 Multi-Channel Audio System
• A 420-watt sound system • 12 state-of-the-art loudspeakers (7.1 system: 7 channels + 1 subwoofer channel) • 7-channel surround matrix that converts any 2-channel material into surround sound • Produces a true 360º “enveloping” soundfield with maximum “audio sweetspot” for all passengers • System utilizes a digital fiber optic network (MOST Bus) interface for optimized signal transmission

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
Window and side airbags ETR’s Rollover deployment

36

Window & Side Airbags

• Incorporates window airbags • Front occupant side airbags relocated to front seats

• Rear occupant side airbags in rear doors

44

Side Impact Sensors (A53/1 and A54/1)
Located on the leading edge of the front seat cross member

45

Rollover Deployment Logic
If N2/7 determines a roll over: • Side curtains deploy • ETR’s deploy
