Zurich zr11 obd2 code reader

ok, you are gonna need a better scan tool that can read Mercedes specifically,

that is the only way you are gonna get correct codes and be able to read the live data needed to tell what the issue is

I got those codes from AND data
Customer reply replied 5 months ago

a low voltage code doesnt mean anything, we can read codes on 40 cars and half or more will have low voltage . it wont affect running.

lol, ok. so,here I am , a 15 year mercedes tech, and you are not gonna trust my word.

Thing a snap on scanner for 400 does

Ok will do thanx

a snap on is not as good either.

these european cars need certain scanners or else the data and codes do not come across correctly if at all.

your car has 25-30 modules in it.

the scanner you currently have can only read engine and abs.

you need to read the trans module.

that will have the codes for the limp home mode that you are probably in.

and most likely its a speed sensor on the valve body.

and if that is the case it can only be replaced at a dealer for 2 reasons.

  1. its part of the antitheft so they wont sell it over the counter
  2. it needs coded and programmed with the factory scan tool,

let me know your thoughts.

promise you wont find a better mercedes tech than i

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

What about a burning rubber smell from air vents

hmm, that is not common, maybe a bad blower or resistor take off the outside air duct above the battery and see if you can see anything inside.

It's kinda dark out but will do early tomorrow. Will let u know.
Thanx

or actually you might have oil burning off the exhaust from the rear of the heads, on the passenger side there is a oil separator and on the drivers there are plugs and yours might also have a vacuum pump seal , they all leak oil onto the exhaust manifolds.
