    That is a fault description I have never seen either. Often generic scanners dont give the correct code/description on MBs you are better off going to someone with star diagnosis

    I had one a few weeks ago come from another garage with codes read from a snap on reader, they had replaced a selector and valve body and it was still stuck in 1st gear.

    It needed a battery.

    Snap On scanners, no matter what range dont seem to play ball on MB's. I have an Ethos scanner which I have when I do other makes and I have plugged it into the odd MB and you dont get half the info out you do on STAR.
