Thanks - I am hoping to get fixed up wth some sort of (hopefully not too expensive) OBD2 reader that will work with our 2018 Mercedes Sprinter - if only to be able to diagnose what the problem is and how serious it might be.
For example on the last winter snowbird trip we made with our GMC Sierra diesel pickup and travel trailer, we had a check engne light come on - but no limp mode and all seemed ok.
With my OBD2 detector I was able to find out that it was just an issue with one of the glow plugs.
The weather was warm and no issue starting at all so rather than wasting at least a day if not more of our trip, I just left it until we got home!
Looks like no anser to my original question yet - ie if I just need an adater cable to connect the unique Mercedes connector to a standard OBD2 socket so I can use the BD2 device I already own, or do I need to buy a dedictaed unit for Mercedes - and if so, any lead on an inexpensive one!
