Talking Newbie needs help- Yes, i have tried searching :)

So how do I check the codes?

My jeep has a procedure where you turn the ignition on and off 3 times in a row, and the "check engine" light flashes the code.
Is there anything like this on the Mercedes? or do i need some kind of reader?


Edit: after further searching, I have pretty much accepted that some kind of tool is needed to get any kinds of codes from the car. So now my best bet is to go and find a part store or mechanic to read the codes for me.

Once I get them, where can I check to see what they are for? I'm pretty sure the cause of the light is the O2 sensor, but I would like to make sure. And also would like to know which one is dead.
