Whether you drive a Mercedes-Benz or a model from another make, you can reset the check engine light by using an appropriate scanner or by disconnecting the negative battery cable. However, if you don’t resolve the underlying issue, you’ll see the light reappear almost immediately. We’ve covered common causes and solutions below, so you can learn how to reset your check engine light with confidence.

Resetting a check engine light is as easy as pressing “Clear” or “Reset” on your chosen scanner. However, it will return almost immediately if the issue isn’t dealt with.
Disconnecting the negative battery cable for a few moments will force your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s diagnostic systems to recalibrate. If an issue was previously solved, but the warning light failed to deactivate, take these steps:
Keep in mind that disconnecting the battery may cause certain electronic systems to reset, so you may have some reprogramming to do!
