    Your Mercedes:
    BMW 520d SE F10, formerly c220cdi estate (for 12.5 years and 345k miles), before that w124 and w210
    2002 w203 c220cdi

    I had my battery disconnected for 2 days whilst waiting for a replacement alternator.

    I was surprised that when I reconnected it, I got no warnings.

    I did not have to reset the steering angle or the windows. The only thing that needed attention was the clock.

    Is this unusual?

    I've had the car for over 10 years, I should have found it by now!

    I'll keep looking. ;)

    There was no resets required when I fitted a new alternator to my C220, and that also was disconnected for a few days. :)
