I have recentently purchased the SDS/DAS Mercedes diagnostic system for my 2001 R170 SLK 320. When I ran the quick scan all the modules in the car reported back as you can see in the picture. There were a few fault codes stored. Some had a large capitol -F- while some had a small letter -f-. In my research I found that the large -F- meant a recent code and the small -f- meant an old code. I checked all the listed systems and they are all performing and working properly now so I cleared those codes and they have not returned.
However the AB or Air Bag System has an exclaimation point -!- after it and this means an EVENT was stored in "the log". Well I have probed the airbag system and all the components come back within parameters and have check markes indicating they are all okay. How ever I can not find an "event log" to find out what would tell me about the "event" AND I can't erase the exclaimation point either. Can someone give me a detailed description of what that -!- means and can I erase it?
Thank you for taking your time to respond to my question.

Regards,
Lisa

This is pretty amazing, 375 folks have read this post and not one response in 8 days. I didn't realize that I was asking an impossible question. Maybe there is a Mercedes Tech that will eventually see this and have the answer. I can only hope. Thanks to all that have read this and checked it out and lets hope we get the answer to my question.....

I don't have your diagnostic system, but are you sure they're aren't instructions hidden somewhere in your software package?

Thanks Mike for taking your time to respond to my question.
Well if there are instructions hidden in the software package I haven't found them yet. I thought this would be an easy question for someone like a factory mechanic that uses this set up every day. But apparently not many folks have run into this to be familiar with it. I'll keep my fingers crossed I find the answer one day.
Thanks again for your time,

Lisa
