2006 7g electro plate coding
Can anyone throw any light on a problem that a friend of mine has please.
The electro plate failed after he had the car for 7 days, the dealer (not MB) gave the car to their specialist. They ordered the electro plate and were told by the Mercedes parts man that it would come coded to the car. The plate arrived and it was found that the plate had not been coded, further more they also could not code it. The car was sent to a Mercedes dealer and they reported back saying that they could not code it either.
They said that under these circumstances the electro plate and the valve block would have to be purchased together, they said that when you cannot code them you have no reverse and some forward gears.
Can anyone throw any light on this subject please, I thought that back in 2006 the plate and the valve block where 2 separate things entirely.
