Re: Update to DTC 19 problem . . . .


basically, what is involved? is it something a non mechanical person such as myself can replace? i do have friends that are very car capable though. where do i buy the eprom? how much is it? any reason to find a newer one from a junked MB (cheaper)?

hey, you aren't the guy with the MB ATI supercharged coupe?

The final resolution to this problem was the replacement of the fule computer's eprom with the newer version that contains the opened limits. They were changed from 0.85 and 1.15 to 0.68 and 1.32. Quite a difference.

Replacing the eprom has fixed EVERY car that had the dreaded DTC19 problem including all 'S' and 'E' class cars! I believe the count is something like 6 or 8 cars.

About 4 months ago, it even occured on my S500 (104K miles), so I replaced the eprom. S/A is running about 0.85.

If you're interested in permanent fix for the DTC 19 problem, send me email for the details.
