I looked up LED flashes 5x on other forums and answer was EGR inop, so can I be confident this is the discrepant part ?

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago
I do notice trusting forums. No real mechanics use forums. Only the normal do it yourselfer that really does not know what they are saying lol. They heard or read it somewhere so they post it. I can get you the complete diagnostic routine and all the flash meanings tomorrow. It's only available on the job site. Hope that is ok.

ok here is the chart, to erase the codes, hold the button down for 8-10 seconds for each individual code, the egr is usually the fault located on the passenger side of the engine, make sure there is vacuum present from the solenoid in the front of the engine when th engine is above 3000 rpm. hope this helps. click the link below. Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
