This isn't the correct procedure for the US '03 W211 (that I have anyway). They want you to hold the button down for 5 sec (much like our ML) instead of pushing it 3 X, then you navigate a bunch of cryptic menus like 'US SERVICE 5' (Whatever the heck that is). I did find a way into 'GENERAL INSPECTION" which allows you to set in a date - this is perfect for our bi-annual state inspection.

You need check off sheet for your car to know what each service means. For instance, service 12 is oil change. 5 is engine air filter for diesel.

Anywhere I can get a car-specific one of these other than the dealer? Not exactly on good terms with them right now... '07 350 (2wd, gas by default I guess)

06 should work for you. Just look for specific items for your engine.

Long time lurker... first post. I just got an 2006 E320 CDI, changed oil and filter, air filter, and fuel filter.. Tried multiple times to follow the clear instructions above, but never can get past step 2 where the battery voltage should be displayed, (after pushing the reset button three times) to start the process... Anyone else have this issue?

Have searched, to no avail.

It can be a little unresponsive sometimes, when this happens we use the diagnostic equipment to do the reset.

But make sure you have all doors closed and the hood and trunk closed when doing this. The 3 presses need to be firm and quick.
