Just had oil change. Nothing extensive done. So I would recommenf based on services I had.

You release my Mercedes with the brake light issue on stating if I wanted it fixed it would require more diagnostics starting at $150-$250. You told me you replaced the switch to correct the basic problem of the car being stuck in park. I did my own research and if the switch was replaced the lights go off?? They were on when I pick my car up. My break lights were also not working which was discovered on my ride home by my wife behind me. Two you tube videos show how to replace the switch to fix the problem. Very easy under the dash. I also confirmed this at Mercedes. When I called you I was told that the switch must have burned out and you took it in and replaced the switch, no charge. The test for $150-$250 were never needed. All that was needed was the switch to be replaced. When you replaced the switch the lights went off. Again, they were not off when I left the first time. Trust is a major issue in car repair and this issue does not sit well with me.

Questions Answered by Tobias' Automotive Specialists
Your car is most likely equipped with individual zone control, in other words the passenger can set a temperature different than the driver's. Most likely cause is the door motor that controls the blend door on the driver's side but it could be wiring, an obstruction in the door itself or the controller. A qualified shop would be able to perform tests to determine the cause.

NoX is controlled by a few different components. The EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system is primarily responsible. It allows a controlled amount of exhaust to be reintroduced into the combustion chambers at specific times to reduce the cylinder temperatures. The EGR may be bad, plugged up, solenoid or computer may not be commanding it on. There may also be an excessive amount of carbon build up in the cylinders. These problems contribute to engine preignition or pinging which is the cause of NoX. Also, the catalytic converter plays a role. If the catalytic converter is worn it cannot burn the NoX it receives. It does take some specific equipment, information, and training to perform an accurate diagnosis.
