1995 w140 S600 Coupe ASR limp problem - DTC codes


I've got a 1995 s600 coupe. The ASR has been intermittent and comes on and goes to LIMP mode more frequently now (daily). I turn ignition off and on and sometimes it works or not.

I have the LED push button stock setup near next to the CAN modules (California vehicle). I pressed it and got 6, 9, 19 and 38 blinks. How do I find out what these codes mean???

Is it possible that my ETA is the problem?
I've recently replaced the upper fuel injector wiring harness, but no change for anything, but those wires were looking bad anyway. The car appears to have a small misfire, but I haven't narrowed that down yet Otherwise, this is a nicely kept car with 98,000 miles on it.

What's causing ASR limp and what are those codes indicating?

Thank you!

Thanks, I''l get some pics added shortly.

Today, I simply decided to erase DTC codes using the simple led push button that's attached to the car. I believe it only reads Fuel injection info. Anyway, after erasing codes the car is not going into LIMP/ASR (drives great), however I done this before and only lasted a day or two as the computer will relearn whatever problem is causing it.

Before resetting, I wrote down the number of blinks. 6 and 38. Can anyone tell me what that means? especially 6 as I've heard that 38 is unused.

i had the same problem few months ago. pls. do not take your car to any road side mechanic because they cannot fix ur problem. mine was at a road side mechanic for 29 days under that intense california sun. later they called me to say "we ordered the parts and will take 2weeks to arrive" we will call u as soon as we get the parts. checked with them for 3 wks still no parts, then i took it to walters in riverside and they got my car ready the second day. and how much? $300.00
