Dear experts:
I have tried everything to reset my service clock for my 99 W210.
I followed the owner's manual and other members suggestions. Nothing is working.
I think you experts gonna like my case. :)

Pre-face lift (no driving computer and multifunction steering wheel)?
Here is one way (fom the manual is believe):
1) Turn key to 2 (ignition on)

2) Push zero-button in leftside down corner of the dashboard, two times (to get service interval on display)

3) Turn key to position 1

4) Push zero-button, keep it pushed and turn key to position 2. Keep button pushed.

5) After 10 seconds (check out the time, it feels really long :D), you should hear a beeb, and new service interval should appear on display.

With facelift, turn key to pos. 1, use steering wheel buttons to show the service interval, push R button on dashboard, answer yes to question 'do you want reset the service interval'.

There has been recently discussion in finnish mercedes forum where someone also has been problems to reset the interval in pre-facelift car, I'm following the result and report here if solution is found. I remember there has been reported wrong key position instructions with W211 owners manual, but it shouldn't involve this case.

[ mod note: with north american cars, step 3 is key position = 0 ]

Thank you guys for replying it. I am going to try everything tonight once again. :)
If it doesn't work, I will post a video on Youtube of I doing it. So you guys can correct me if i am doing it wrong.
I checked all fuses last night and they seem working fine. (I used fuse testing tool and multimeter). Battery display 12v + and no short circuit found.
I don't know what to look for anymore.

Displays go out first.

some cars require the procedure to be started from sleep mode >> all displays go out.
Thank you for replying. :)

So I have to wait all displays go out inside the car with doors closed?

How do I know when the car is in sleeping mode?

Thanks

Well, my instructions above are from european model... and most of the cases they are working but currently there is similar issue reported in finnish MB forum where that procedure is not working.

Lot of the time it is all about timing. We don't drive MB too much, so it takes over a year for the service. Even I have done it tens of times over the years, I always have to refresh the memory and not always do it fast enough. Give it several tries.

Get the ignition to 2 and turn off again with the 0 pressed and again press it to 2 and then the service reset itself.

Basically the same procedure as for my SLK.
Of course you will have forgotten it by the time you need it again and will have to struggle again. :D

I would expect in those days every computer owner do own a printer as well. What a problem to print this page and put a copy in glove compartment?
I keep copy of sensor codes and errors in my GC box. You never know when they become handy.
Oh, and OBDII scanner on rear door pocket.
