Hi,
I'm thinking of buying another MB. It is 96 c220 with 115k miles on it. The car is in Ok conditions but it bothers me that I cannot check A/C since EC light is always on. Pushing the botton to deactivate it doesn't work. Any suggestions how to turn it off or why is it on all the time, how to fix it?

Thanks,

S.

The EC light stays on when there is not enough refridgerent in the A/C system to make the compressor kick in. The refridgeretn has leaked out some how. The system needs to be recharged abd have an ultraviolet dye added and then reinspected in a few days to locate the source of the leak, at which point a repair can be made. Normally these aren't huge repairs, but there are cases when it can become quite expensive.
