R171 AMG SLK55 - Instrument Cluster Options

Hi All,

I recently rejoined the ownership group when I picked up a 2006 SLK55 AMG. (Had a prior 06’ 280).

After reading the manual, there appear to be additional instrument cluster options (lap speed, other stuff). I can’t find these... any help would be great!

Thanks!

https://www.billsden.org/fileadmin/m...wners_2006.pdf

I have 2005 and there is for sure no special AMG-menu avaliable. I guess, as The Sarge, that it´s a FL thing.

Never looked specifically, but never stumbled on such when playing with pre f/l 2007 55.

EDIT
As I was puzzled by this and knew that I had all but lap timer I went through menus.

I do have lap timer.

Live and learn.

Likewise, mine's a Nov 06 built MY07 and is almost always on the page showing me the gear I'm in and the oil temp. Probably the 2 most important parameters there are.

Sometimes those things need to be enabled by DAS/Vediamo the easy way.
Some time the IC has to be red and the option needs to be enabled by editing the hex in the EEPROM.
Sometimes you need to flash the ic with another cff file.

For most versions of the instrument cluster this can be enabled through coding but I don't remember if the shift point and oil temperature display will work correctly.
Note that the lap timer is not really usable as a lap timer.

Thanks guys. I remember one of the first things i had programmed was to remove the kph and replace with outside temp. I suspect to actually achieve oil temp and gear selection is more than just a setting. It's such a logical parameter I cannot understand how this was not available as a standard option on a performance car?
