Pull back on shifter again to go back to normal mode. When paddle shifters engage the gear number lights up next to drive.

Maybe if you were in sport and had paddle shifter engaged, that would explain the high rpms and slow speed.

Left middle button is radio mode (fm, am, sat, etc.)
Right middle button is to toggle preset stations.

Those last two could be opposite. Try them, you'll see.
Yeah, but it shouldn't have turned on the MIL indicator.
Whats wierd is the MIL going off so soon, it normally stays on for a few startstop cycles before it goes away.

Does sport mode definitely disable MDS? At cruise on the highway, the instantaneous mpg seems pretty much the same as in eco mode.
[sure wish they'd enable that indicator in settings again]

The dealer on the test drive did not have me use the paddles at all so maybe I can find a tutorial on line as to proper use and when to use. I have to deal with sand and mud but not snow.
The paddles are kinda handy in a few situations, a tad better than sport mode.

- prepping for an uphill pass on a 2 lane

- on a steep paved downhill, you can use a downshift, however
most mechanics might suggest the brakes are a better idea.

It may be even more difficult when you get a disc with the Owners Manual and have to go to jeep or tech authority to get a hard copy.
....unless they've changed this in the last couple weeks.

No, when I asked salesman for hard copy he had to order one for me on 7/29 so now for snail mail to kick in or the UPS man to throw the manual over the gate and into the rain puddle like he usually does

Re: Wierd check engine problem

just want to confirm that using the paddles does not put the vehicle in sport mode, or at least not on mine. Going down a hefty hill in a campground I used the paddles to kick it down to 2nd to control speed, stayed in D. I was not aware of the "hold upshift for 2 seconds to return to D" method so I actually had to kick it in and out of sport to get back to normal auto behavior.

Ok, I should have said it puts you in manual shift mode rather than sport mode.

This is standard German Transmission behaviour... All of the Mercedes i have drive work this way exactly and I love it. I sometimes just want to add some extra drag and then easily swap back to the mode I was in without taking my hands off the wheel.
