Need Help with C230 Kompresssor

I have a 1999 C230 Kompressor. The odometer reads 68,391. I had it serviced about 4,000 miles ago. Whole car was looked over and serviced. I just started it up this morning and a wrench came on saying that it needed to be serviced in 600 miles. Can someone please tell me why it would need to be serviced. Thanks

Your service schedule was not reset when they finished with your car. If you have a manual, it should tell you how to reset it. If not, have your dealer do it.

RE: Need Help with C230 Kompresssor

They reset it when I went in about 4000 miles ago. Because last time I went in it said I needed a service and it started the count down at 1200 miles. That's why I don't understand why this time it started at 600. Anyone have any other ideas?

Well I don't know how Mercedes set up their notifacation, but it might be that it was reset and moved to a different service that was a lower milage.

I would just drive it until I could get by there. They should do it for free since they were the ones who didn't reset properly. I also would call them to see if they will tell you over the phone how to reset it if it's that far away. I don't think they need a computer or anything to do it. I reset mine myself (even though it takes a couple of tries).

BTW, I never go by that crap anyway. I just change oil every 5000 K and do all the other service myself. The light has come on before in the middle of my service schedules.
