Any idea where I can find OBD code P24A5? My CEL came on in my 2015 interstate,(2014 platform) and I read the code but can't find it in any of the code listings.

I mounted mine (Velcro) under the overhang for the instruments and that didn't obstruct any of the displays.

While it can scan for codes, I was advised by my MB service advisor not to clear any codes because the scanner gets more info than just the code.

You can check it out here.
Does it 'read/display' the code or actually decode it?

I’m still looking for a DAD scanner, Named after Dr A Diagnostic, a sprinter forum user that purchased the remaining stock from a national fleet managment company that was transitioning to the NCV3s. Those scanners don’t just read the codes but can also command all the sprinter systems for diagnostic tests or maintenance like when needing to cycle the ABS pump to flush the brake fluid.

Unfortunatly, they don’t hit the market very often, rely on an antiquated version of windows, and generally sell for upwards of $700. Luckily I have dibs on one but it may be another 25+ years before the owner bequeaths it to me.

What scanner did you use to get that code? You wonít likely find what the code means without going to a dealer or independent shop that specializes in Sprinters.

Try this post from Sprinter-Source forum. Looks like CEL code P24A5 is related to the EGR system.

I googled it and found it "EGR cooler bypassbank 1 stuck". It's at the MB Sprinter shop now being repaired under warranty. They are also replacing the airbags per recall. Thanks.

I don't see above where LB_3 or I actually named the brand of unit that we have. Or if we did, it was dissociated from the initial posts.

It's an OBD Fusion, which plays well with iPhone via Bluetooth.

The beauty of the device is that it plugs into the OBD port and lives there permanently. No switching on and off. No taking in and out.

The display is customize-able. On our recent trip, we had an issue with a turbo hose coming loose and the van going into limp mode, and so LB_3 created a custom screen that prioritizes boost information. And also chassis voltage because we had an alternator issue as well.

I'm going to set this up for continuous read-out. I should have been able to do that on this last trip, but it turns out that the 3M CR window tint is incompatible with even the best quality cell phone suction mounts. I had asked the installer if suction cups would damage the tint. He said, "Absolutely not." The part of that information which was NOT included in his statement was that it won't damage the tint for the simple reason that it cannot stick to the tint (I can't believe I drove yet another six thousand miles with my phone in my lap). So now I have to engineer a new dash mount so my phone can become a continuous read-out of this information (as well as disclosing codes if something goes wrong).

These readings below are near max because the screenshot was taken as we were climbing a rather large mountain.

Not sure about Mercedes but Torque Pro works great on my Ford (Android). Streaming data from all sensors with multiple gauge formats across multiple pages, alarms and diagnostic trouble codes with freeze frame data and DTC lookup. $7.50 from the Google Play Store plus an Elm 327 OBD Bluetooth adapter.
For serious diagnosis and on board tests I still use AutoEnginuity but can't beat TP for everyday monitoring.

(tablet is mounted to a RAM netbook mount attached to a custom padded piece of wood that fits tightly into the dash pocket near my right knee & places the screen just in front of the center console)
