Customer Question
HI, My name is...

HI, My name is Gordon. I have a MB C300 year 2010. This morning the message "ESC currently unavailable. See Operators Manual" came on the dash display. Car goes into safe driving mode and we have to turn it off and on to reset. Seems to occur more often when braking, slowing down speeds. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on?

Just started this morning when we went to use the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

We want to fix the car ourselves as we have done the maintenance on car. Issue is, we are having difficulty to find out where to start. We are not getting multiple of different directions for repairs from internet sites.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, I think we are good

Hi im kevin the first place to start here is to communicate with vehicle to find why the car is illuminating the warning light .you will need to use a diagnostic scantool to do this .this allows you to pinpoint the cause

We did put it on a scanner this morning. Problem is that we have multiple messages that appeared. We don't know what number is ***** to the ESC display on the dash board.
