R129 question

Hi, i am the proud owner of an R129 SL600. I have recently changed the battery and found the light for damper system remains on. My MB book says to turn the steering from lock to lock - but not sure what this means. Does this mean to actually turn the steering wheel all the way round one way till it locks then back again or is this the ignition lock? The book says this will happen when the battery is disconnected so I don't think there is a problem with the damper. Can anyone help me??
BTW I really love this car. I think the new SL is very elegant but somehow lacks the onroad presence of my r129

Micc,

You should turn the steering wheel from lock to lock, this should reset the system.

If you still have problems, post a message in the R129 Forum, I'm sure one of the members could be of assistance.
