Hi, How are you?
I'm Shabaz, one of the automotive experts, I'm sorry you're experiencing problems with your car, I will do my best to help you today.

When replacing the instrument cluster, it must be programmed to the car and the mileage corrected. You will need to find a MB independant specialist because a main dealer won't do this for you unless they supplying the part.

I hope this helps.
