Only had the car a few weeks it is a 2005 280 Manual... Getting used to the clutch on a new car I have stalled it a few times ...But yesterday after a stall and restarting, the engine check light came on .... Car runs perfectly. Will the light extinguish after a few drives? Or any advice will be very welcome.... Thanks in advance... Marty.

If it doesn't go out by itself you could try a battery reset: remove the negative from the battery for 30 mins then reconnect (without hesitation/sparks) , you'll need to reset the clock and the auto windows afterwards..

Don't do that, i have my wife C class kompresor staling a few weeks ago and ignore the cell and now the car is not starting at all, i believe the timing chain jump a tooth so I am gutted.

Fair enough in normal situations, but the OP states that the car drives fine and that the stalling is due to not getting the hang of the clutch yet, but obviously getting it scanned is always a good idea....

Well if the valve are bend and the timing gears are "toothless" i will be paying a lot for this engine. You have a slk 200 with a m271 engine check your timing chain just to be on the safe side.

At this point i am a bit paranoia with MB cars, check your car just to see is nothing wrong with the balance shaft sprocket , stalling the car can put some strain on the chain and balance shaft. Again you are in that range with your car.

If the engine is running fine with no adverse noises etc, start the car and then turn it off, dont use any throttle. Try this a few times and if the ecu has picked up some contradicting signals ( due to the stall ) you may find it will extinguish itself, once it has received some constant readings after a few cycles.
If not i am afraid its a scanner job!

More bad news the head must come off as the valves are bend, no compression on 3 cylinders. How is this possible on such a big brad. Slk 280/350 they have the problem with balance shaft m 271 they have problem with timing gear sprocket/....
