Lou, the code is a P261F71 when pulled via the Snap On Scanner. The P261F code was retrieved via OBDII. I also found thru the Snap On Scanner 2 other codes. They are P0299FA and P029FB. What would be the fix? Are there any TSB's or updates that may need to be done?

I hope all is well with you and your family. In regards ***** ***** question, I was able to locate the information in a Mercedes TSB that pertains to this vehicle and the DTC.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 7 months ago.
On gotcha. We are a Benz dealer with limited access to the smart and sprinter so I was waiting on a call back from a fellow sprinter tech about the tsb's even though I had access to the wiring (which is very generic) and locations (which are not updated regularly ) so , sorry I could not be of quicker help. I only take questions I know I can help with. Today was just a bad day for me and is not getting any better. Kids man lol. Sorry again. If you cannot rate positive then I understand. You can follow the customer service links if you want the question closed. Sorry again. Lou P.
