That damn check engine light!

I own 3 cars and all 3 have the check engine light on
Pontiac Montana van was the gas cap.
Jeep Liberty is the o2 sensor. Before was getting 19mpg and NOW with getting 20.5! I left it alone.

Now for the slk 230 K ... it says "wastegate soleniod"

Car runs fine.

What now!

I almost fainted !

Ok bit the bullet and took car to local Benz dealer.

They checked supercharger and all checked good. They also said they "relearned" the EDC.

Here is why I almost fainted. I bought this car from individual and has no warranty.

NO CHARGE and can we give you complimentary wash job and cappicino while you wait. LOL

I said sure ... need time to recover from the no charge.

Sounds great. What was the name of the dealer? There are probably some other folks around that may want to use them. It's always good to know a Mercedes Dealer that provides good Customer Service.

Thanks for posting.
