battery alternator - 2006 C230
Last night, while returning from school, my car showed the message in red - "battery alternator. visit workshop". It cranked up but would not run and the rpm was very low. After about 30 mins, the message went off by itself, rpm increased to normal value and I could drive back to home.
Today morning again I had the same problem. This time I had to wait almost 1 hour with the message until it went off by itself and I could drive.
What is more disappointing is that, I drove to the Mercedes Dealership (hartford, CT) and they said they could not find any problem (bcz the message was not there at that time). They said they checked the battery and the battery alternator and did not find any problem. They asked me to call the Mercedes 24h roadside assistance if I had the same problem. Wtf, the dealership cant diagnose the problem and I have been paying so much for the servicing every year?
Anyways, if you had any similar situation and know what is going on, please let me know. I appreciate your suggestions.
Thank you guys
Have a great day
