    here is the reset procedure, copied from the owner's manual:

    Turn electronic key in steering lock to position 2.

    Within 4 seconds press button "0" twice.

    The present status for days or distance is displayed. Within 10 seconds turn electronic key in steering lock to position 0.

    Press and hold button "0", while turning electronic key in steering lock to position 2 again. The present status for days or distance is displayed once more. Continue to hold button "0". After approx. 10 seconds a signal sounds, and the display shows 10 000 miles (Canada: 15 000 km) for approx. 10 seconds.

    Release button "0". If the FSS counter was inadvertently reset, have a Mercedes-Benz Center correct it.
