I tried the key thing to 2, press reset twice within a second, bring key back to zero, hold down reset key back to 2.

Nothing.

The manual says bring it to a dealer.

Thanks!

Could be wrong but from what I understand it must be done with the Star diagnostic system and not by a proceedure as with The W163.

If the procedure works similarly to the W163, I believe that it works only if the driver's side door is open rather than closed.

Do not believe that is correct on the W163. From what I understand the driver's door must be closed

Door must be closed on W163.

If the W164 truly does need to be reset only by StarDiagnosis, then does that apply to other models as well?

Yeah, sorry, I'm almost useless when it comes to PDF files and how to save/re-save them, etc.

Maybe the door has to be closed! On the W163, the door must be closed in order for this to work.

Dealer forgot..did it myself...

I had the car in for service after one year like the manual recommends. I only had around 10K miles on the odo at the time. It seems like the $300 dealer oil change did not include resetting the service reminder.

After I hit 13,000 miles I've had an "overdue service" reminder on engine start-up annoying me ever since.

Thanks to this site and this thread I was able to reset the thing myself instead of having to drive to the dealer and waste 30 minutes having them do something they should've done in the first place.

I wonder what else they "forgot" to do..

Thanks to all who contribute here!

I just wanted to document that this procedure does work on a 2008 ML63 AMG

A few minor difference from the documentation.

(Make sure the doors are CLOSED)

No Key, so have your key fob with you and press the Start/Stop button ONCE

The word Confirm is used on the doc, in this year/model the full word Confirmation is used at least in my software version...
