Hi Marty.
No work has been done.
Diagnostic tester shown two fault codes. 22E3 and 22A5.
Also have in mind that the problem is not permanent.
Thanks.

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I have no information on those fault codes in my Mercedes information. I will opt out and allow the other experts to help if they are able.

Ok. I seen the fault codes you posted but those are not full fault codes. Do you have the printout from the diagnosis ? If so can you take pictures of it and upload here ?
