Location of Diagnostic Connector on CLK 320

Hi,

Can anyone tell me where the diagnostic (OBD) connector is on a 2002 CLK. I just want to reset the Maintenance Alert. Thanks for you help.

Ciao,

BadaBing

P.S. This forum is awesome.

The OBD II port is under the drivers side of the instrument panel. There might be a small door you must open to see it. It should be very close to your hood release lever. However this is not how you reset your service counter. This is done by putting your car in key position 2 (the accessory position before the car is turned on), now scroll to your a/b service screen on the display, once you get there hold your tripometer reset button for about 10 sec. Your service display will then reset.

Hey gfimotorcars,

I should have registered as a member here before I bought a contraption that is used to reset it. Thanks for the info.

Does this also work for the 1998 320CLK?

It also tells you how to do it in the owners manual.

And in case anyone wants to know where the connector is on a RHD (UK) '99 CLK 230K, open the bonnet and in the far right corner you will see a large cap about the size of a radiator cap (it fits in a similar fashion to a radiator cap too, 1/4 turn to unlock), with a smaller nut moulded in the centre. You can normally undo this by hand to reveal the 38 pin connector. You will need a 38 - 16 pin convertor cable (ebay, about £5 inc p&p)
