Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.I am going over your story now and will reply back soon with some info,thanks!

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 month ago.

if you have a generic scan tool , we have been lucky to be able to erase the fault codes and allow the engine to start another time.

the problem is that a code was most likely set and thats why the remaining starts went active

the only way to get rid of that totally is with a mercedes scanner and performing the tests on the adblue system

but for now the only way you can get it to start once more is to erase the codes with a generic scan tool

other then that we (the dealer) are the only ones that can get the system back and operational once the diagnostics are done.
