That cannot be right, because I have recently reset my service indicator on my 2004 W209. It can only be attributed to the year of manufacture.I think the instructions apply to a W208 CLK and not W209's,
As far as I know W209's have to be connected to a STAR machine at MB Dealers.
That procedure does work. Please have the ignition in ON condition (i.e. as if the car is running), otherwise it wont work. I reset mine (CLK2005).Yes, see post 7. I reset mine last year on a 2004 CLK.
I think that I had to have the door closed, and I did the procedure from the manual given by MiamiMerc above...
If you can get past the awful grammar and the botched slam (spelling idiot with two d’s), he is correct about this working. Several other sites indicate that the key should be in position 1 which does not work. The key needs to be turned to position 2 (the “on” position).I have 2004 CLK500.... My Service B Light been on* exceed 4000 miles... I follow the instructions and it worked! 100% It Works!! Anyone who cant perform this needs to either trade the Benz in or go back to elementary school because your iddiot.
Thank You MiamiMerc, I only got 2000 miles on since a supposed Mercedes CPO comprehensive inspection/service and the " B Service reminder " turns on and I'm not suppose to be back for another 10000 miles. Your reset procedure works perfect on my 2006 C230 Sport. It has been less than 6 months since the last service by the Mercedes dealer that sold me the CPO.These are the instructions from the manual...
