Question about 1992 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 300 Class
I TRIED TO JUMP START THE CAR BUT GOT THE POLARITY WRONG AND EVER SINCE THE ABS LIGHT IS ON. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO TURN IT OFF? I have a 96 Mercedes 280c with the same problem the abs, rts and check engine lights are on. this happend after unhooking my battery.
A one time error code will be stored in the car's computer memory until it is read and reset by a mechanic's diagnostics equipment. if the vehicle seems to be running fine, you can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery's negative cable for a few seconds. If the error is reoccuring then the light will just come back on again. If this is the case you need to have the car's computer hooked up to a diagnostics equipment to read the error code which should tell you where the problem is. Error codes sent to the comp. are what causes these lights to come on and are hard to diagnose without the equipment so you'll probably need a mechanic. Wish I could help more.

Could be a fuse problem. check to make sure the main fuse (which is usually undo the hood and would be an 60,80 or 100 amp) isn't blown. If it isn't you may just have to have the lights cleared from a scanner. The computer may have detected the reverse polarity and thought it was a problem in all the systems. try this first, but please keep me informed. Thanks
