At the start of a restore project. My first Benz.
Picked up a 2001 W208 CLK430 which has potential to be made good once again.
It has had a bad 2nd set of cats removal - I will build a stainless system in the next few months.
A few questions
OBD2 reader - can anyone recommend...
I have, as far as I know, no problems but would like to have a basic OBD2 reader and reset tool for 1999 W208 with 38 pin socket under bonnet.
Would I be able to use a 38 pin to 16 pin adapter cable and a cheap reader/reset tool - I could get both for about 20 quid?
I have read other posts...
Hi all, looking to get an obd2 reader to allow me see any fault codes that crop up before speaking to the dealer, or for self diagnosis. Was thinking about the icarsoft 980 as a Mercedes specific device. I notice however, that the car manual gives dire warnings about connecting things to the...
Considering investing in an OBD2 code reader and a 38 pin to OBD2 adapter... Only need to read/clear basic fault codes.
If I buy one of these:
MaxiScan OBD2 Car diagnostics - fault code reader | eBay
And one of these:

I've got a problem with my car. A few days ago the check engine light came on and the car went into limp home mode. I switched the ignition off and on an then it drove fine, but the CEL stayed. Now the limp home mode has come back and won't go away.
I've got a generic code...
On the off chance I wonder if anyone has or has used a Vgate "Icar" plug in OBD dongle. I have been bought one as a present and all day yesterday tried getting my Iphone 4 to pick up the wifi network that is suppose to show in my wifi networks on the phone:wallbash:. Problem I have is...
Can anyone let me know where the OBD2 port is on pre-facelift W221s, and how to access it? What little I've been able to glean from the internet tells me it's behind the panel under the steering wheel but I can't see how to get in there easily. Or does that only apply to left-hand drive models...
Hi All. I'm new to this forum. I have a 2000 C240 estate (W202) with 112k on the clock which has run perfectly since I bought it some 18 months ago. I'm a keen and competent DIY mechanic.
The car has began to fail to restart once warmed up and throws up an engine fault light. Opening the bonnet...
I can see much has been written about the EGR system, but I cant find specifics to help me fit the EGR shunt to my C270 W203 model, I built the circuit provided by "Diesel Man"
Can anyone help with a pinout of the ECU wiring?? I'm not even sure im looking at the ECU (top...
You may have had people ask this sort of thing before, I've done alot of trawling through the internet and it seems to come up alot and everyone has a different opinion.
Basically I have a W202 98 C200 that has the 38 pin diagnostic plug. Naturally seeing as I had the obd2...
Currently looking for a scanner that will give me codes should the engine light decide to illuminate. Any recommendations? There are so many just dont know which one would work. Dont want to spend much!
How electronicised is the W202 C250td in terms of being diagnosed/programmed. I think I'm right in thinking it's a CAN system, what works on this network? (engine, autbox, alarm, lights, locks, windows/mirrors, command (not on mine, but if it did?)).
What off the shelf tools could I...
Guys and Gals
I have been going mad trying to figure out whether its possible to get a conversion done on a e320 cdi with OM613 motor on 2001 year.
The problem is that I desire to use the OBD2 type bluetooth scanner to build a digital dash based on...
Hi fellow members. I am new to the forum and this is my first post.
I have recently purchased a really nice low mileage E320 of 1998 vintage.
I have searched this and other forums and have been unable to find a definitive yes or no as to whether this car is OBD2 compatible. I realise that I...
Grateful for some advice
I have an April 2004 E320 CDI Saloon car.
Firstly, is it OBD2 compliant?
Secondly, If it is what OBD2 machine would forum experts recomend
I see them on good old ebay for upwards of circa £20
I am "tight" but I'd rather spend a little more for one that will do the...
