    Which code readers will read W210 codes? I bought a Launch Creader VII+ which has W209 and skips to W211. On a video I watched, it looked as if the Icarsoft MBII did the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. The cheapest scanner that works on all W210 ystems is Carsoft 7.4 multiplexer. Has the 38 pin connector needed for W210.

    Thank you, question though, there is a OBD II port under the steering wheel which threw me off, so it still has the 38 pin us under the hood? I'll look for a multiplexer see if I can get his problem figured out. Thanks again.

    Scroll down the forum main page and you will find scanners section.
    MaxiEcu cost less than $200 and reads W210 with 38-pins connector.
    Not all modules are covered, what you have listed on ME web site.

    Thank you, sorry for the slow reply but I got sent out of town for a month right after my last post, and just got back. It is my sons car, 1998 E320 and it is acting weird so I decided to buy my own reader vs pay the local MB dealer basically $300 to put it on the machine. Oh yeah, the Carsoft 7.4 says it operates on windows XP; have they updated to a newer OS by any chance. I don't have nor does anyone I asked have computer with XP still on it.

    Again thanks

    Hacked scanners are always a can of worms.
    I do have WXP disc and having dedicated laptop for scanner this is what I use, but bare in mind for 1998 you also need 38 pins plug.

    Hi, just new here, I use a autel MD802 with the 38 pin adapter , due to I do other cars , such as alfa , jeep , so on . comes standard with the OBD11 cable but not with the adapter but the adapter works with DS708 (if I got the right model) but will work with the MD802 just that you need the correct data cable to work with . (15 pin male to male ends) my e270 cdi does not have a OBD11 connector , my scanner does a lot of makes , but will not read Australian models (holden and au fords) but does everything else around the world.
