Customer Question
2008 mercedes e350 battery...

2008 mercedes e350 battery ran completely down. What can I do to reset the computers?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Not leaking. Car sat for two years. Battery completely drained.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Just going to replace the battery but, from what I have read, probably have lost all of the set codes in the various computers

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

Just what will I need to get them reset without taking the car to the dealership.

I attached a reset procedure for you to do per your request.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron
