Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 6 months ago
Here is the code descriptionP2BAD - the upper limit value for long term adaptation of the SCR exhaust aftertreatment system was exceededWhat this means is that the electronic adjustment of the value of the adblue injection system and converter are beyond its limits. So either the injection valve is clogging or the catalytic converter is failing or the nox sensor after cat is faulty. This would need to be diagnosed with a mercedes scanner , preferebly a dealer so its not misdiagnosed. The only way to get into the proper test steps is with a mercedes scanner. Hope this information helps Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may receive my credit for helping, 5 STARS is ideal. Please request me in the future! Keep in mind that when you rate it does NOT end our conversation, you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed just simply reply back, THANKS!
