C230 P1420 Error + One Oxy Sensor error
I have a 2000 C230 Kompressor which just started presenting a check engine light. A review of codes at Auto Zone showed P1420 and a code for one of the oxy sensors (sorry, hubby did not write that down).
In addition to this new check engine light issue, recently, I thought I have noticed a lack of get-up-and-go, but, I have no scientific proof of this. Also, we have been having more frequent issues with our door-mounted seat adjustment buttons. Sometimes they work, sometimes they do not - can not seem to find any pattern to this behavior.
Oxy sensors were changed about 1 1/2 yrs ago, guess could be bad again?
I have reviewed P1420 search results here and they all seem to point to resolution on SLK models, usually which also get a series of 4-5 other codes at the same time. The fix there seems to usually be the resoldering on the K40.
Does the C230 have the same K40 or do I need to look at something totally different?
Is it possible the O2 sensor could be bad again after only 18 months or so (maybe 20,000 miles of driving) or could one bad solder trigger an "extra code"?
Any opinions appreciated!
