MERCEDES SERVICE – WHAT DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT MEAN?

I used to think that the check engine light was the proverbial “boy who cried wolf” of my dashboard. I didn’t know how to check my engine, and besides, my car seemed to be running just fine. Then I found myself stranded on the side of the interstate, late for work, waiting for a tow. It wasn’t until then that I wished I had, indeed, taken my car in to have the engine checked out. Lesson learned. The ominous glow on your Mercedes-Benz’s instrument cluster is trying to tell you something: your engine needs a check up.

The check engine light on your Mercedes is part of the onboard diagnostics (OBD) system built into your vehicle. When the check engine light goes on, it means that the vehicle has identified an issue in the OBD system ... read more

WHAT DOES THE TIRE PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT MEAN IN YOUR MERCEDES

The tire pressure warning light is often overlooked by most car owners because it is not as common as an oil change light or check engine light. However, the tire pressure light can indicate an immediate need for Mercedes servicing if the tire pressure sensor is malfunctioning or if the tires need to be repaired due to under inflation.

WHAT DOES YOUR “CHECK ENGINE” LIGHT MEAN IN YOUR MERCEDES?

Mercedes owners know that it is never a good moment when you start your vehicle and your “check engine” light pops on.

Mercedes owners know the value of their vehicle. Mercedes Benz vehicles are built with luxury engineering and precision.
