I just bought a 2001 C240 with 58,000 miles. Had a carfax which said it just had full service at a local Mercedes Benz dealership. Having tons of bad trouble. I called the Mercedes benz dealership and they reported they did not do any service to the vehicle. So, first lesson, don't trust carfax. The coolant looked like a Wendy's Frostie. From this forum I learned that they had a bad quality radiator. So, I had the system flushed (7 times!) and installed the new radiator. It seems OK now but in S the transmission is VERY brutal in the 1-2 shifts. Now it appears the head is leaking on one side. The air conditioning isn't working and all 11 fault lights keep flashing in spite of the fact I cured most of them. Very disappointed in the quality control at the factory.
Is there a way to turn off all the faults that show on the dash screen without going to a M-B dealer to do it?
