. . . if you have an OBD type scanner

you can read and get a more detailed definition of what that DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) means.

The OBD (On Board Diagnostics) with the newer MBs (96 and on) have gone to this system. I assume that you read this on a bill from your shop as a 'teaser' to what's wrong with your car.

Need to get an OBD compliant scanner. This site offers one (Ottoscan) that is used in conjunction with your PDA. There are many others available as a standalone in the range of $200 - $500.

Check my page (red house) to see what some of the DTCs are for the S class car broken down by system auto function.

OBD site for info. . .

check this site out: http://www.obdii.com/obdii.html Click on 'Does my car have OBD-II'.

It shows what and when they became OBD compliant, fully or partially. Accordingly it says that the C220 was not FULLY compliant but obviously somewhat!

What this all means is that you MAY have an alternate way of looking at codes; the 38 pin Diagnostic connector (X11/4).

If so, the codes that you see on my page are taken from the 38 pin Diag connector and are MB 'english' codes rather than more crytic OBD codes. The OBD codes were shorten abit and coded with 'P' numbers. Yes, the codes are related but I don't know how to make the association unless you have two scanners: One such as the AST 'Retriever' and an OBD version. Read the codes using both and the 'P' numbers will get cross-linked.

To me it's better to read the DTCs from the Diag connector (if you can) than from the OBD one. But not sure that the 38 pin connector was not eliminated!

David Klasse would know!

The 1995 C-class is fully OBDII compliant. Atleast the 280 is, so I'm assuming the 220 should be also, but I just checked the OBDII webpage and the only 95 Models that were fully OBDII compliant were the S320, C280 and SL320 (interesting... maybe they only had it figured out for the M104 engine? And if so, why not on the E320? Maybe last year of body style... didn't really need it?).
But that means that your car is partially OBDII compliant, so you should get some info, thus your code.
Open your hood (and looke on the underside of the hood) and look at the little plate that tells you about your emissions system, and see if it says OBDII Compliant.. probably won't, but you should get some info that way. Good luck and I hope someone can help you with your codes!

BTW, how did you get this code? Was your check engine light on? Any symptoms or anything?

This should help also. There is also a search to find out what your code means, but there is no option for Mercedes (or maybe I jsut coudln't find the ISO thing).

. . . 38 pin Diag Connector?

David, in addition to the OBD connector, does the 95 C class have a 38 pin Diag connector?

Jim,
the 38 pin connector...? Do you mean under the hood, the round connector that reads ABS, SRS, etc. codes? If so, yes.
