On my Jaguar XK8 I was able to call the dealer service department and have them look it up on the computer using the VIN number. Realize they don't want to do this, they want you to bring the car in to make money. I told them it was not in my owners manual (which it wasn't) I guess I convinced them that when the car was originally bought they should have put the code in the book! I told them my Porsche had the code in the book (which was true)..Good luck!

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.

The check engine light went on on my 2003 MB c230. I took it for diagnostics and the shop shows a code of 201d-001 catalytic convertor is insufficient. It is a very pricey part. Should I have it rep


Hi,
Check the emissions warranty for your car - should be in the warranty and maintenance manual that came w/the owner's manual. The emissions warranty may be good 'til 100K miles and replacing the Catalytic Converter (CC) would be covered.

Also, call the MB dealer and ask 'nicely' about whether it's covered under a recall.

It could also just be a bad O2 sensor - not the CC. A failed 02 sensor can cause other issues or codes to occur.

But FIRST - have them reset/clear the code and see if it comes back....it may be a 'false-positive' and not really an issue.

BTW, don't disconnect your battery to reset the code - you may either lose your car stereo/codes or set off the alarm - unless you know how to fix both!

GL,

The display on the radio and the radio wont come on its mercedes benz C230-1998. had to charge the battery


you will probably have to enter a code for your radio to work again, look in your owner's manual and if you do not have one then you will have to call a dealer and get the code or try searching online, sometimes you can get help there

Reset radio code C230


This happened to me too. I didn't have the code, and my service tech called the dealer and they gave it to him--we entered it, and I wrote it down in my glove box, and it worked immediately.
