Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

'97 Mercedes C280, two ''engine'' lights have come on

Not sure what each one means. One is on most of the time and looks like a boxy submarine in water. The other has a circle with hash marks around it and only comes on when I press the breaks with more pressure than just tapping them.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Service engine light that looks kinda like a submarine? what does that mean?

does it look like a submarine, or more of an actual engine? I believe it should be a pic of your engine. This light can mean anything from a loose gas cap to an engine misfiring. You'll need to bring it to a garage to have the onboard computer scanned to retrieve the code that will determine what the actual cause is
