Your C280 has a problem with a deteriorating engine harness? Is this the wiring harness? If not, what is it?
Secondly, my mechanic did pull the codes and that is how I knew the exact reason for the check engine light being on. Anyway, he reset them for now, and didn't have time to look at it today, but I am taking it in Friday morning. Will looking at the actual values of the firing voltage give you a more accurate idea on what the problem with cylinder 2 is? You also said to look at the wiring by pulling back the insulation? Are you talking about on the plug wires?
Is it safe to run my car without causing damage to the catalyst until Friday? He reset the codes and they have not come back on yet, but I still have a rough idle every 15 or so seconds. Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.
