W202 OBD II code reader

Post by johna » Wed 14 Feb, 2018 8:59 am

Hi all.

I've done a search of this forum and couldn't find a conclusive answer for Australian models.

I have a 2000 model C200T (W202).

Will one of the cheap eBay OBD2 code readers work on this model? Does it have the standard port I do I need an adaptor of some sort? And where is the port?

If these code readers don't work, does the LED method I have read about work on Australian models?

Thank you.

No OBD II on Australian cars until the W203 and W211.

Cheap OBD scanners will not work at all.

Post 1997 Oz Benz cars used OBD and a half. For full diagnosis you need Star or equivalent iCarsoft knockoff.

If you want to cancel fault codes such as SRS or reset limp home mode a Independent specialist may have something.

There are some generic sub $1,000.00 units which will read codes however as I have seen these codes need a Mercedes expert to diagnose them accurately.
I know of a man with a a '98 C200 who spent a small fortune taking his car to a "European car Specialist" who misdiagnosed code issues with a generic scanner.

LED is very limited.
There's a 32 port round connector under the bonnet.
