I scanned two weeks ago. The scan only picked one back leg sensor

My mech said the back leg sensor interpretes to selection of gear to back tyre.

And it selects appropriately.


Pls do scans pick faults associated to fuel system or nuzzles??

I'm pretty sure that wheel sensor only affects your ESP.
My hands-on knowledge of cars isn't the best but you could check your MAF, Spark Plugs, and 02 sensors too.

What scanner are you using? Star scanner?
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by makavele: 10:50pm On Oct 21, 2018
I think they are using a generic scanner. I recently got somwthing very close to the star scanner, 99.9% close and yes, it would indicate all faults, from a bad sliding roof to transmission to airbag to SAM issues. Battery registration etc
Somebody lowered the back seat and didnt latch it properly and the scanner got it. Badass!!!

Good luck with your search, I hope it's fruitful.
A manual W203 is a great find but a manual C350? Treasure it.

I am too lazy to check but on-board diagnostics started as far back as 1968 with a volkwagen

The more compliant OBD2 came on board around 1996.

Is your vehicle dated further back than these dates?? lipsrsealed lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

Yes, 1976 - 1986 model . . . You should have OBD1 if I am not mistaken

Pls let somebody educate me,what is the difference between c230kompressor and c180,200kempressor of the same year.in terms of speed and economy

Depending on the year, all have the same 1.8L supercharged 4-cylinder.

Power and fuel economy are inversely proportional. Bigger the number, more power and less fuel economy.

Get the C230k.
