Hello, you only have 1 of 2 options,

turn the ignition from off to on 8 times quickly and see if the 0 starts resets, if not it must be towed to a mercedes dealer to have the scr system reset via scn coding. those are the only 2 options. once you hit 0 there is no turning back. sorry, Lou P.Please take a second and click the STARS above and rate my service 4 or 5 stars if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
