C280 SRS parameter code for programming new control mod

There were no helpful responces to our problem. However
after hours on the internet and calling every MBZ dealer
and shop forman in the Greater Bay Area. We took a wild
guess. The Answer?? The factory tool automatically enters
the 'parameters' during its programming process of asking
if the car has side bags, seat sensors, etc.. The
aftermarket device (Baum CS2000)does not have the ability
to do this and it requests a 6 digit code for the
parameter. Alldata and MOD and Mitchell collision quote MBZ
as that if the incorrect number is inserted that the SRS
control module will become defective and require
replacement. What then is the code?????? IT IS THE DEALERS
SERVICE CODE NUMBER WITH A '0' IN FRONT OF IT. I.e. dealer
code 05619 becomes 005619. Customer even pulled car out
from under us and took to another MB tech. He ended up
retracing all our steps and we found the answer . He used
his Baum and now we are his best buds too. 3 Techs and
hours spent. But success is sweet if not always profitable.
Our thanks to the Service dept and techs at Smythe MBZ in
San Jose for some insight. The answer to the problem was a
Spock like 'best guess'!

IT IS THE DEALERS SERVICE CODE NUMBER WITH A "0" ADDED TO IT
