Thanks but This doesn’t help.
Mercedes Mechanic: eric remington,

we​ll I need yourvin number in order to access service information. do you have a scanner so that we can see if any trouble codes exist in the pcm. if you have a scanner we can access a data stream. I don't know what you mean this doesn't help? I need information in order to help. I don't have a crystal ball that I can tell you what codes are causing your check engine light to come on. many things can cause light tot come on. So please answer my questions. If you don't have as scanner you can go to autozone and they will scan upir pcm and tell you what codes you have and then report back to me and I will tell you what to do next. But if you second guess me and assume that with such basic info that I can help you without answering my questions how can I help you. So how can I help you?

You are not helpful, any idiot can look up a code on a scanner. No one needs a vin number. This is obviously a scam. Since you waited so long to answer I already got help. Thanks anyway. A real mechanic could give suggestions based on information given.

sorry you have had such a rough start, I did want to touch base and make sure that you did not need help?

did you in fact get the car taken care of?

maybe I can explain better why the last guy asked for a vin and if you had any codes?

we are not a scam. we are real people that truly try to help, google JUSTANSWER LOU P. and you will see thousands of my chats where i go to great lengths to help people.

the main goal here is to get you taken care of.

Customer reply replied 18 days ago
no, i will take it to the dealership. thanks anyway. and to be clear you should never start a conversation asking someone for their vin on the internet. That just screams SCAM.
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 18 days ago

sorry you feel that way, without the vin we can not be sure that we are looking up the correct info.

a lot of people dont even know what car they own.

lol

hope it all works out for you.

I have been a dealer tech for 20 years.

so if you need a second opinion or what not let me know.

not all dealers are good customer service orientated places.,
