Check engine light showing

Take it to a repair shop, as with all
car problems

Check lights shouldn't be new to you

You should have checked for codes already,
then you know the system with a possible fault

Check engine light after jump starting

You probably just need the ecu resetting, but there could be a need to set up a few more engine management features. Certain systems can loose callibration if power is diconnected for a period of time. Take it to your dealer

Engine light 0n 1998slk230

The check engine light on means there is a problem, may be as simple as a loose gas cap but in order to find out why it is on you will need to have the computer scanned for codes.

The computer system is always testing and watch all sensor operation and when it detects a problem it stores a code and turns on engine light to warn you there is a problem.
There are many auto part stores that will scan the codes for free. If you get me the code or codes i will help you further. when you write back please relist year,make model and engine size with the complete code.

For example;;; a code can read like Po 301 cyl #1 misfire. this would mean cylinder 1 is misfiring, i need the code the po301, good day

Check one of the fuses in the bonnet. There is most likely an electrical contact problem. You will need a fuse wire replacement

I have a 2002 Mercedes Benz SLK 320 w/about 87K miles on it. The car is running fine but the check engine light is on. How do I get this light to go off?

By having it scanned and cleared with an OBD tool. This light comes on when it detects a problem. Could be a bad gas cap, or it could be a misfiring engine. The code you get from having it scanned will pinpoint the trouble area

Check engine light comes on as gas level reached 1/4 tank which causes low fuel light to flash in my 98 MB SLK230...any idea as to the cause besides bad gas cap?

Have you had the fault codes read? If not, why not take the car to an autoparts store and have them retrieve any codes stored in the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It could be an emission related problem, but getting the codes should narrow the cause down. The check engine light indicates the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Hope this helped and best wishes.

320 SLK Coil ticking.

I also have a 2001 SLK 320 with same issue. It is definitely a lifter problem due to the fact that it is occasional. Also, if a coil were bad then it would trigger an engine code ('check engine' light), plus it would run rough for longer. Try some oil treatment first, if that does not work for you then you'd have to replace the lifters.
Honestly, it's a lot of work. I am not sure if I am going to keep it or not. I honestly absolutely love my car but I just don't know now.
