I thought the codes remained until reset by a scan tool; that is, even if the malfunction that caused the CEL corrected itself the code reader would show it. I may have been misinformed and I humbly bow to JimF's superior knowledge. I guess if I could choose anyone to catch my mistakes regarding CELs, JimF is the one I'd pick! Jim, your site is outstanding and I used it to learn a great deal about scan tools and MB electronics. In case anyone has not seen JimF's excellent site here is the link.

Spaces in sig so as not to screw up the SEARCH; every time someone searches for that MB they don't want my sig!
