What are Some Issues Associated With the Mercedes’ 13 Pin Connector?
posted on January 1, 2020
Most cars on the road today have a fully-automatic transmission. It is easy and comfortable, providing drivers with the opportunity to relax a bit while behind the wheel instead of engaging the clutch and shifting every time they come out of a red light. Your Mercedes-Benz has a component of the automatic transmission known as the 13-pin connector, an electrical connector that connects all of the wires that perform a number of automated functions.
However, Mercedes models are notorious for failures in this connector. These problems are often misdiagnosed by under-trained mechanics, which can be costly in the long run and cause you a lot of unnecessary headaches. In this article, we will discuss issues associated with the 13-pin connector and what you can do about them if you experience these issues in your Benz.
The 13-pin Connector and Common Issues
The connector itself is an electrical socket which makes connections between multiple wires throughout your vehicle. In a Mercedes, a failure of this vital component tends to cause transmission leaks. These leaks can damage the function of the wire harness, transmission control module, and valve body. The valve body is a core component of the transmission system, allowing the flow of hydraulic fluid into the right clutch and switching to the appropriate gear. More often than not, the valve body itself is not damaged when a leak is caused by a faulty 13-pin connector, but the control module will lose communication with this critical transmission part, and the entire system will fail.
In these cases, inexperienced mechanics often diagnose the issue as a problem with the valve body itself, but they are missing the oil leak which occurs at the transmission connector plug. This plug has a rubber O-ring which can become worn out over time or dislodged from its proper position. Mercedes cars made after 2008 have an O-ring at the connector plug that is twice as thick as those on earlier models. These are much more likely to have this issue. In addition, if one of the 13 pins in the connector breaks off, this can cause the same leakage, leading to the very same malfunctions.
If your mechanic is not trained sufficiently enough to recognize this problem and correctly diagnose it, you could wind up unnecessarily spending money on unneeded repairs. Be sure to have your Mercedes regular maintained and inspected by a qualified, experienced Mercedes technician to avoid these and other common issues.
Signs of 13-pin Connector Issues
There are certain signs by which you will have an indication as to whether your Mercedes has an issue with the 13-pin connector in the transmission system.
The leaking of transmission fluid causes loss of pressure throughout the entire system. This pressure is vital to the proper functioning of your transmission. You may experience hesitation in your Benz while shifting from one gear to the other or jerking when you shift.
If this issue is left unchecked, it could get to the point that your car will not shift at all, or only up to a certain gear. This is because the transmission system does not have the hydraulic fluid or pressure necessary to sustain its function.
It’s possible that your vehicle could stall entirely in the event of a transmission leak related to a fault in the 13-pin connector.
Safe Mode/Limp Mode
Your Mercedes has a feature called “Limp Mode” or “Safe Mode”, which prevents you from shifting the vehicle past a certain point. If your problems gets to this level, it is a sure indicator that it’s time to bring your Benz to a trained mechanic.
If you experience any of these signs of 13-pin connector failures, you should be concerned about transmission issues and bring your vehicle to be serviced by a qualified Mercedes-Benz service professional.

The transmission 13 pin connector plug causes the majority of transmission slip or delayed engagement problems on the Mercedes Benz 5 speed transmission. It leaks transmission fluid to the 13 pin connector and causes the car to loose communication with the valve body.This is a common problem on the Mercedes Benz cars from 1998- up to 2008.

This is the famous transmission plug that leaks oil and causes the majority of transmission problems (heart attacks). You can get it on Amazon for less than $15, see here for the original part. Replacement part # A2035400253
You will also need to add transmission fluid once you remove the plug. The transmission will show signs of slipping, hard shifting or delayed engagement just when it is low on fluid. This is the correct fluid which you can also order from Amazon here.
You also need the transmission dip stick to measure the transmission fluid level because there isn’t one in your car. The tube is there with a cap on it but with no dipstick. To measure the transmission fluid level properly, you need to drive the car for about 5 minutes and then measure the level as the transmission fluid needs to be warm when you measure it. It sells on Amazon for about $15, see here. Mercedes Benz Transmission Dipstick reference number 140-589-1521-00.

Just imagine, a meter away from me Tanyukha stands with cancer and sucks a dick. And her luxurious ass describes circular movements, as if inviting me to a dialogue. Her flowing hole, into which her two fingers are inserted, is so wet that her shine is visible even in the twilight. And you think that I will not react to this pose.
I don't know what happened then, but something jumped in my head.
