2 diffrent types of STAR diagnoser?
Car: 08 s320 w221
So, i have visited a Mercedes benz specialist (not the dealer)
He diagnosed my "airmatic malfunction" message on dash, using Star, code read y51 solenoid (magnet) valve problem.
He told me the shock needs to be replaced,
I talked to him today and Said im Going to order a shock.
He Said i should visit dealer, because they had a "more advanced Mercedes troubleshoot machine"
So, you guys know if there is a better Star at dealer? If so, Would it specify the airmatic fault code? Because my Mechanic is worried if it could be a bad wire or connection..
Dealer Said on phone maybe it Will Tell something Else maybe not, and i belive he just wants an Extra customers money sadly.
So im turning to you guys for an advice!
Should i test at "better Star" too se if it says its not y51 code but a bad wire?
Or just order a new shock?
