The "C" is for comfort mode and the "S" is for sport mode. While in comfort mode the transmission will start off in second gear and switch gears at a lower rpm. In sport mode the transmission will start off in first gear and allow shifts at a higher rpm. The car will always be in one of these modes depending on which one you select.

    I'm not exactly sure how to turn that off, have you tried pushing and holding that button for a few seconds? Otherwise check the owner's manual, there's got to be something in there about it.

    You can also join a mercedes forum and ask around, the members there are pretty familiar with their cars.

Is there a picture of the fuse box diagram somewhere for a 1989 Mercedes 300 E? I dont have the names of the fuse box to find the fuse for disconnecting the seat belt . light keeps coming on when car is...

Go onto and register (for free) and type in mercedes 300 e and look at the 2nd one in line. Yours is a 124 body and the owner's manual is labeled 200, 230, 260, 300. On page 86 it has a list of fuses and their location. I hope this helps. I've worked on Mercedes for years and I know how hard it can be to retrieve info on these cars. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hello, I have worked on Mercedes for the past 20+ years and I can't think of any way to do this easily. The shift lock is tied into your steering lock/ignition lock for safety and theft reasons.
I hope this helps.
