The ''glow plugs'' preheat for starting but also cycle off and on on a cold engine to help with more complete combustion before the engine reaches a certain temp. This usually takes more more often during winter but is norrnal if it goes off after a while.

How do you reset the service engine soon light


Put the key into the ignition and turn it to "Run." Don't start the engine. Press down slowly and fully on the gas pedal, then release it. Do this three times in five seconds. Watch for the "Service Engine Soon" light to start blinking. This indicates that the system is resetting itself. Turn the ignition to "Off" and wait one minute. Start the Century's engine. The Service Engine Soon light will flash for a moment, then turn off. If it doesn't do this, repeat the process.if all else fails...Disconnect your battery for one minute and then reconnect it again that should reset it, if the problem that you have in your car is still there then that light will come on again after whille then you gona need to run diagnostics on your car to find the problem if it will not come on again then that should take care of it.9-08-2006Let me tell you about my experience with my 1995 Buick Century.When my buick sits for a while while running, the radiator fan comes on, you know?Well, after the fan does its thing, SOMETIMES the "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" light comes on.THEN.....when this happens again, it may take a couple times of after the fan comes on, then....the light goes off !!!Its like it needs to go thru some sort of "CYCLE" , THEN THE LIGHT GOES OFF...Who knows though,you may have LEGITIMATE problems with your car.good luck.

If there is a problem with any electrical sensors,switches,motors in and on the engine anylon slight fault can bring the glowplug light on. I would suggest that you take to a independent Mercedes specialist and have the code read most fault are logged.

My 2005 Merc C200 CDI SE Coupe Sport has an occasional burning smell inside the car. There are no warning lights and I cannot find anything under the hood.This has happened three times in as many weeks...


Well if you had me as a passenger you wouldnt smell nothing ,cars never play up when i get in them for some strange reason ,To be honest ask a local mechanic to use the car for a couple of days so with a bit of luck it will happen when hes driving it and as soon as he smells it he will know what it is ,it could be antifreeze ,radio ,wires, plastic on exhaust down pipe ,anything in fact have you had a new exhaust fitted recently ,are cats getting in somewhere ?? very difficult to point you in the right direction sorry

Emergency brake light comes on while driving


The wire that connects to emergency brake is loose, and grounding out. It probably just needs to be tightened up.
