Hi I am having trouble with the auto in my 1997 E320 removed the filter from the auto and found that the filter paper material had fall into pieces, my car only has 1st and reverse now like in limp home but no indication on the dash, will I get fault light on the dash or do I need to hook diagnostic tool up to it.

You can read the OBDII codes from the connector over the drivers knee for starters, but to reset the limp mode which is 2nd and reverse will be have to be done from the circular connector in the engine bay. It will cost you $100 to $200 depending where you go, or you can buy a cheap Chinese Mercedes reset tool.You can buy the tool for $50 to $100, but you need a Windows XP machine with dedicated serial port. No USB to serial converters, and only XP will work...

Check out this thread. Around post 100 is the software, and a multiplexed tool is on the last 40 or so posts. It is the cheapest way out...Read the whole thread.
