Mercedes problems


if your cluster is mechanical, then it is not possible to change the settings. you can attempt to get a genuine cluster from Mercedes Benz by using your VIN and request for a cluster that displays KPH.
However, if your cluster is Digital, or uses an LCD display, then you will need a STAR DIagnosis tool, hook it up to the car, and perform something known as SCN Coding to the cluster. There you will have the option to change it from MPH to KPH

If the rest of the instrument cluster is working properly then you probably need a new instrument cluster. A new or working used instrument cluster will likely fix your problem, but a dealer will have to install it and transfer the programming from the old cluster to the new.

Had Oil Changed...Now I Can't SEE my INFORMATION DISPLAY!


  • The message center display is blank
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 .


see owners manual for information




Principles of Operation
The message center is a vacuum fluorescent display, part of the instrument cluster. The message center electronic functions use both hardwired, standard corporate protocol (SCP), and UART based protocal (UBP) communication networks to transmit and receive information. As a technician it is very important to understand:
  • where the input (command) originates from.
  • all the information (messages) necessary in order for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • does the module which receieved the input (message) control the input of the feature, or does it output a message over the SCP communication network to another module?
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The message center provides the following features:
  • information displays
  • setup displays
  • warning messages
  • system check messages
The message center information can be selected through a set of three bottons:
  • INFO
  • SETUP
  • RESET
