2000 SLK230, got a flashing and then fixed check engine light today. Plugged in a cheap OBDII / CAN scanner into the socket by the left knee, and the scanner didn't show anything. Other cars, it powers up when inserted.
Is there a trick?
I would pull the plug off the cam magnet, right at the top front on the engine and see if it is oily, if it is get a blocker from MB and fit it on, the chances are you have oil going through the wiring harness
