had codes p1525 , p1236 , p1235 , p0370,
MB dealer got these codes for me and said that it was not my supercharger as i thought and that it was either the ECU or the wireing going to it,
They then told me that the best way to fix this was to leave the car with them for 3-4 hours and they would check every wire for breaks and if it was not that they would have to get me a new ECU ,
So as you can imagine not cheap, so i decided that i would have a think about it and get back to them.
After searching through this forum i came across this post , so i checked the K40 circuit board and found the burnt out connections,
quick solder, 2 minutes later and a very loud scream. car and supercharger were running like they should.
so the question is , did MB know this was the problem and were they just trying ro rip me off,
either way i'm happy and a big thanks to everyone who posts on this forum!!!
