Yes, MB started with a CAN as early as the mid 90's. over the years more and more functions were controlled by it, so a 2002 is certainly going to have it.

Thanks John!

Since posting this I now know there are actually different types of CAN: C, B, D
  • CAN C is Engine CAN
  • CAN B is Interior CAN
  • CAN D is Diagnostics CAN
As well I am told the W168 doesn't have CAN B, which is what I was really interested in know. Is that correct?

A-B-C etc are just names to differentiate which circuit does what. As with mercs of old,the canbus is reliable as long as no dumb bugger has cut into the loom on a fault finding mission.

Hi the w168 model does have a CAN BUS system but is very basic comapred to other models it just basically has a engine and body CAN
