1996 Mercedes Benz SL500 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles
The check engine light came on while driving today and so I came home and started Googling the subject. And I've found precious little concerning this model (or Mercedes in general) and whether it is OBD-II or OBD-I. I'm guessing it is OBD-II since it is a '96+ model, but does it use a proprietary adapter? I looked under dashboard near the hood-release lever and saw two thin wires one with a thin metal "male" type connector and the other with the "female" version of the same. Am I missing the actual socket that a scanner would plug into or is the port located somewhere else in the car? How can it be scanned/reset if it is missing this? Can I use the battery-disconnect method? I'm befuddled. :S
have the same problem?
