Funny, I followed the link, and I found that the first paragraph on that particular page clearly states that the system is re-activated every time you start the car. ?

It sure sounds like the starter is engaged to me...

My wife wanted to purchase a new car so we went over to the MB dealership to check out the SUV's. First question she asked was if it still had the eco button and if you could permanently disable it. They stated no so the discussion ended right there. The salesman did state that most all customers HATE that "feature". We drove right across the street to Lexus and purchased a new Lexus where you CAN keep it off. I don't think we will ever purchased another vehicle where you don't have the option of turning it off. I'm not really too impressed with my GLK anyway so my next car might be purchased at Lexus too.

So, can I permanently disable ECO mode via an ODB II scanner. In reviewing this thread, I did not see that question addressed. I have a 2016 e250. I know MB would not endorse this, but with the aftermarket ODB devices out there is this an option?

Also, is there a good thread discussing the pros of having my own ODB II scanner?

I personal like the eco funktion and belive it does save gas and the way mine starts up there is barley a difference between engine on or off.
However I see 2 options to turn it off by default.

1st find the wires of the eco off switch. Bridge these with a timed relay controled by ignition. So now you turn on ignition start the car and let's say 1 min later the timer disables eco.

2nd better way, find sombody with SDS Xentry and Vediamo and have them disable eco.
If you around washington dc I can recommend sombody.
Or go all the way and your own Xentry it's a good investment no matter what.
Will cost you around $800.
