I decided to take my car to MB yesterday and Service Adviser said Service A is too early (I only have 8K miles and I only own the car for 5 months)...The service adviser reset the Service Timer right in front of me. The process is very similar to the 2005 C230K (you still have to toggle the "Service A due" screen, just everything past that I didn't really catch.
So if anyone knows the trick for the 2006 models I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thanks to all in advance!
I just completed the B service tonight on my 2006 C230 and reset the service timer. 25,600 miles
When the timer is approximately 500 miles from service, the display will post a reminder for five seconds each time you turn on the ignition counting down by 100 mile increments until it reads 'service B is due'.
1. Step into car, shut the door and turn on the ignition. Do not crank/start engine. On this step, the service due message will post. Allow five seconds to pass until normal/regular information display is shown.
2. I then pushed the up arrow button on steering wheel to display service interval. It read 'Service B is due now'.
3. Push reset button(also serves as dasboard dimmer dial) left of temp gauge for several seconds. Service display will then show press for 3 seconds to reset timer. After three seconds with finger on reset button, timer will reset. Mine read 'Service A 13,000 miles'.
