Would it make useful sense to create a register of owners and their cars that have been subject to NOx sensor failures on this platform? Has anybody identified a particular model/engine type that is most at risk? There are already other registers on here.
Just a couple of thoughts.
My local Indie just called. They swapped the sensors and proved that one is faulty and have ordered a replacement at £329 +VAT. It will be there on Friday with luck. I'll post again with the total cost since it may be of interest to others.
Many thanks for your knowledge (of which you have much) and advice! Star has found a fault in one of the front sensors so the bumper is coming off and I'll know more this afternoon. I'll definitely advise the Indie to reseal the other front sensor. MAny thanks again. KRs, Gareth
I have the same issue with my 2016 R231 with 32K miles on the clock. The same messages suddenly came up one morning last week when we were touring. It's booked into my local Indie tomorrow but the costs you mention are scary!!!
We were touring last week in the SL400 and on Wed morning at startup got 3 messages :

These are all linked to the radar beam from the unit at the top of the windscreen. I cleaned...
My device is a Drivesmart Alpha X and does detect live cameras of all sorts as well as GPS mapping of fixed and mobile camera reported locations. You are right about laser cameras being difficult to detect in time, but if the usual locations are mapped then you will be warned in advance. We do a...
You have made assumptions in your reply without knowing any facts. I provided facts to a contributor about mobile speed cams on motorway bridges. This had been disputed by another contributor. The advice about checking bridges was directed to anyone who drives at 70 plus. Personally I am not in...
I was zapped by a Gatso camera in Cardiff a few months ago. It was placed on a downhill ramp joining an urban dual carriageway. 36 mph and a speed awareness course. Since then I have bought a speedcam detector device which warns of mobile speedcams as well as the fixed type. I just cannot...
Glad you had a good day there! No it was not me, we were in Plockton from 25th to 27th. We did the NC 500 for the third time but took a side trip to Orkney for a couple of nights. We had not included Applecross in the past but did that too. I hope to post some dashcam pics later.
