Help with 2011 View

Looking for owners who might be having the same issues. I own a 2011 View model 24k. After being in storage for a Michigan winter with the engine battery being disconnected but charged. The unit turns the check engine light on after the battery has been reconnected. The light won't turn off unless cleared by dealer. Anyone having similar problems?

You could try to Google for the correct codes and procedures. Just make sure that there is no real underlying problem..

if it is a 2011, it should be under warranty. Have the dealer check it out and fix it.

2011 View

The vehicle has been to the Dealer a number of times. My problem is they can't fix it? The temporary repair is to use a battery charge when parked and don't disconnect the Mercedes engine battery via the under dash disconnect as the owners manual implies you should. This is the reason I'm looking for other View owners with the Diesel, to determine if this is a common on these vehicles and other have the same issue.

Yes we had the same problem with our 24k (2011). I found that driving it over a trip that it finally went out. I finally had a tricklecharger placed and the problem went away. My opinion is I think the compter has to reprogram. Kind of like when the light comes on with a loose gas cap. I may be wrong, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Seriously we never had a problem driving while the light is on, if everything else is working fine. If it starts to flash, STOP. this indicates a more serious problem.

Thank you for the input. Our issue is that the light


Thank you for the feedback. Would the light go on if the engine battery was disconnected for storage then reconnected? This is the issue with ours and it wont reset. The dealer has to turn the light off?
