hi,
ive got a 2001 skl 230 compressor with 50k miles.

The handbrake light, ABS, BAS ASR and the brake pad ware indicator light are on the dash, the roof will no go down aswell, it just flashing and when you put it into gear it makes the car jump floward and its stuck in first gear

I took it into a garage I no, they connected it to the diagnostic threw the plug on the engine to be told the rear abs passenger cable was broken so I replaced that myself and 2 pipes off the gear box had broke and needed replacing and because of this the oil in the gearbox was empty, I had these replaced by the garage.

After the garage did the work they then connected it back to the diagnostic and was unable to access the car like it had locked them out so they could clear the faults.

If any one knows of what the problem might be I would appreciate any input thanks

Try disconnecting there battery waiting 30 minutes and have them try again. If that doesn't work I think your going to have to bite the bullet and take it to a MB dealer.

hopefully you have your radio code card or you cannot get the radio to work after disconnecting battery

Hi, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

It seems that all MB dealers now want a similar amount to do a "diagnostic check". I could understand it if, after them doing it, you fixed the problem elsewhere, but not if they get to do the work.

Hope you get sorted.

Hi Jeff, just a quick one on the radio code. I am not sure if I have mine, can I read it from the Head Unit before any disconection?
R171s do not need a radio code :D
I doubt any modern 3rd party ones need one also
