Are you a mercedes benz mechanic familiar with diesel blue tec engines
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My specific question is: how do I reset the following code/message showing up on the dash: 0 Starts Remaining (due to Adblue issue which has been resolved by me putting Adblue into the tank (filling it).
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Vehicle will not start.
Mercedes Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 7 months ago
Unfortunately this can’t be corrected at home, it will need to be reset with a Mercedes scan tool. This is to meet epa requirements. Once the counter goes to zero, it needs to be towed for Mercedes to reset it. I’m sorry to have bad news but I trust that my honest and prompt reply is appreciated on a Friday evening. Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

There are people getting around this on Youtube. Can you comment on that.
Mercedes Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 7 months ago

I know of no way to defeat the system, and if I did, I couldn't share it, to circumvent the EPA.
