    Looking for Mercedes Auto Electrician near Sheffiekd

    CLK 230 Convertible 2001 My engine management light is on and I'm pretty sure it's a minor thing as the car is performing as normal for 3-4 months since coming on. Done about 500 miles in that time. Had it come on once before about 5+ years ago and then when checked it was only a minor...
