trying to pull 94'SL500 DTC's. What am I doing wrong ??

Check Engine Light stays on. I Found an LED with small button near the R/Side engine compartment firewall. I tried pressing the button 3 seconds w/ign on. It then flashed 2 times and stopped.
I pressed it again and it flashed 4 times and stopped. Then I pressed it again and got 6 flashes. Pressed it again and got 8 flashes. Pressed it again and it started repeating them again. Do I have to press button 3 seconds for each DTC, or should it read through all DTC’s with a single depression? If these codes are true can somebody tell me what they are? Every time I find a list of codes on the net it doesn’t directly say it's for the SL500.
Also, if someone knows the emissions law, can I sue a used car dealership for purposely removing the Check engine light bulb?

Press buton for 3 sec to access each code then 8 seconds to erase that same code. Erase must be done with-in 10 seconds of accessing code.

check engine bulb removed?

Can you sue of course you can sue---but can you win?

If you can prove the seller removed the indicator bulb, or concealed that it was removed, you might win on fraud. In areas that have emissions inspection as part of the annual vehicle inspection, and the seller furnished a new inspoection with the car, a stronger case exists.
