Reinitialize the system. Close all doors. Start the engine and apply the brake. Turn steering to full left lock and hold for two seconds, turn to right lock for 2 seconds, return to center. Repeat that procedure a couple of times. Move car forward and/or backward at least 30 feet. If there is no reset DTC and no stored or registered DTC, the MIL should go out.

Firs you can unpplug the battery cable for about 5 minutes and replug. You might need your radio code to follow the next step. If you are not sure about doing this I strongly suggest you to pay a visit to your local dealer first.

We have seen a few e200's with noisy diff centers it only seems to be on the 200's for some reason , there is two options, one ask you dealer to contact Mercedes and request special assistance on the cost of replacing the diff as the vehicle is only four years old, second option is to have it removed and send it away to a diff shop and have the bearings replaced as that is what normaly causes the noise.

You must check the fuses under the steering wheel, or in the left side of the steering wheel.

I don't think it can be reset without a dealer spec scan tool. Has the service been done? if so, the servicing garage should have reset it. Oil Changes are not "service" If it has not been done, have it done. If the service garage does not have the proper tools to reset the service indicator, they don't need to be working on MB.

service 'c' means you have additional items that might need addressing during the service. Mercedes used letters A-F for the Flexible service system on the E class. The letter correspondes to the hours the service should take. Service A is 1 hour. Service B is 2 hours. Service C is 3 hours etc all the way to F. On average the service C consists of oil and filter change, vehicle inspection A and the brake fluid flush.

seems like faulty transmission, the reason is when you drive the car gears are up shift form 1 to 2 , 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, like that it should be 7 speed auto trans mission in your car, if you mention when which gear up shift the problem occurred I can give more information about what's the fault in transmission, so according to your details it's like two gears are engage together, when two gears are engage same time the transmission control unit understand it's something getting wrong in the transmission according to actual value of gear ratio, then trans mission change the gear to neutral for a second and after that it give the one lower gear than the gear which was stuck and drive fine, this thing might not happen all the time but is the problem verse it can happen all the time, the solution is you must get your car to the Mercedes dealer workshop then they can find what's the wrong inside the transmission before remove it, they have advance diagnose tool for it, then they will repair your transmission, this is the cheapest way, if some one repair your transmission without right understanding regarding what's the exactly fault you will be stuck, may have to be remove again and again,

5) Wait up to 10 second and the light will reset to show new service .

Let me know if this worked.

it means that you need to have regular service work done by the dealer, service letter "C" disignates what is to be done, check the onwers manual or call your local dealer.
