I did not get what I asked for. I want the EC red light turned off. What do to turn it off.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Please respond to my question. What you sent me is to erase error codes. My EC light is on, I want to turn it off.
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi, did you see my reply about erasing the fault codes?

Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

You have to erase the codes in order to turn off the EC light.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I did that, the last time you and I had a conversation about this, you did not ask me to erase codes, you told me to press two buttons and it worked. It was the same issue.
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

I'm not following you. I don't see any previous questions for you.

Are you saying that you already followed the procedure and the EC light remains on?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
that is what I am saying.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Last year, I had the same problem, you asked me to press two buttons on the AC panel, and the light disappeared. It was not to erase codes.
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, I need you to perform the procedure in the video again and tell me if there are any fault codes still stored in the control panel. I'm going to be away for about an hour while I drive home. Let me know what you find and I will reply back later tonight.
