You have to check that bulbs are as specified , as even if its working but out of specs would cause that problem. Second thing is to check the electrical module in the front and relays to make sure all is working well. It would be a good idea to have it diagnosed professionally as this type of Mercedes has a complicated electrical system.

Hi ddansvob-

Most of the codes for Mercedes C320's can be cleared (at least temporarily) by disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery and leaving it disconnected for at least 1 minute. I would give it several minutes just to be sure.

There is also a reset procedure that you can use that involves disconnecting the battery, turning the ignition to position 1 several times and then reconnecting the battery. That procedure can be found with a google search.

Possibly the easiest way though is to visit an Autozone or other similar store that has an OBDII scanner that they will use for free on your car, and have them reset the codes. If there is an actual issue with a sensor, etc. though, the code will come back up after the car has been started a time or two. If that is the case, you are going to have to troubleshoot the actual cause of the code, involving finding a Mercedes shop that will help you with identifying what sensor(s) are causing that code to show up.

If your mechanic used non-OEM parts/battery, that is very likely to be the source of your problem. Assuming that they didn't do that (which would be unusual for any mechanic to do), you are likely looking at replacing a voltage sensor or part of the voltage regulating/distribution system. If you get to that, you are REALLY going to need an experienced Mercedes mechanic.

Good luck!

Have the same issue with mine (same year and model). I've had the car for a couple years, and I regret buying it every time I get in it! Has your sunroof broken yet? It will... common problem, and a pain in the @$$ to fix yourself (major pain in the wallet to have someone else do it).
I will be opening up the steering wheel to get to the buttons and try to fix them, as soon as I can get a short enough screw-driver (hopefully it's a fairly common size, because it's impossible to look into the hole to see exactly what should be used.

As you know that the wrench means maintenance needed. Usually this icon is reset after maintenance is done via Star diagnose.
