Well I actually had a small and big on front axel and small and big in back lol.So I switched them and I was hoping abs esp bas lights would go off after driving car.. But no such luck!!
Also the switches on center console under radio.I believe their skid control and another.They don't work when press the rocker switch..

I'm pulling hens teeth aren't I :cry:

So, go on, I'm in for a dime ........................

Did you actually buy it ?

Have you actually got it?

If so have you actually thoroughly interrogated the car to do all the procedures required to get to the bottom of this ?

Yup, welcome to california. As long as there is no CEL and as long as the ECU is stock, it doesn't matter what condition the car is, it will pass.

Had to deal with a E46 M3, vehicle did not pass because ECU would not communicate with the smog machine. I unplugged the fuse to the alternator which lighted up the dash with all possible lights (but crucially, not the CEL, given that the alternator was controlled by the cluster and not ECU) and drove to smog shop on battery. It passed. 🤯

That's a cool trick 👍 I had to drive 20 Miles to a Star certified smog place and it seemed to shift fine but did go into limp mode 2nd gear one time. I pulled over and shut car off then started it and the rest of trip there and back it was fine..
I was wondering if at 55 mph it should tac at 2k?
Seems kinda high to me.. At 60 it's little over 2k
The indicated on dash said D and I counted shifts and it shifted to 5th gear so
Maybe that rpm is correct?
Temp stayed just around 90°c
Does that sound right?

Are you certain that the SDS Vendor said to update it ?

I have personally never heard of that, get them to Team Viewer and do Keygens yes, but update never :confused:

Perhaps @i860 or @Deplore may well know more than I, I just use 'em and "phone a friend" when it all goes T.U.

I think "update" in this context means activating the SW on his particular laptop. Generating keys, activating, etc to enable it.

DAS, Xentry, WIS and EPC have their own keygen, and if the seller is any good, he will also activate vediamo or DTS monoco (if equipped).

Damn! I had no check engine light on for months! I took car to store and on way back it went into limo mode so I pulled over shit car off and restarted it and it was ok shifting into the gears then on dash the check engine light came on.Car still shifted ok
10 miles later I get home and put code checker on and it has 2 codes.
A P0700 TCU problem and a P0410 secondary air system problem
A big set back!
So now back to agonizing checks!
Any ideas??
I guess I'll check fuse and relay for air system
And on TCU I'll check wires again..
One thing..I topped off trans fluid with Max life High milage trans fluid. Says on back for Mercedes!
Not sure what was already in there from previous owner?
As for air system I can here the air turn on when first start car. Then it goes off after few minutes!
