Default 2019 sprinter trip resets and language changed to German couldnít change back

Hi forum,

Got my 2019 crew for over half year now looks like there are some little issues bothering me that dealer canít fix.

I got basic basic radio and dash system. Nothing fancy.

There are two things:

1. The current trip keeps resetting randomly next day after a night parked. (One another friend with 2019 also has this issue)

2. Very rarely the gauge language changed to German BUT canít change back every you select English on settings. This is fixed by letting the van shutdown and sit for a while. Dealer canít find issue as well.



Anyone else found the same issue?

Also I found the speedometer is 5km slower than actual speed at 100km/h. So Iím actually running 95,000km even speedometer is at 100,000km. This is common problem I found on MB vehicles (had the same on my 2013 GL350). I guess best way to compensate is to have bigger tires (5% bigger).

Anyways, some findings of my own.

Thanks

I had my brand new 2019 170 4x4 change to German on it's own once, but I was able to change it back.

Do you mean 'slower than actual' or 'higher than actual'?

Just because the speedometer is reading 5% difference to the actual speed this does not mean the odometer is registering incorrectly.

The manufacturer has the ability to force the speedometer to over-read as they must display typically between 0 - 10% above actual speed but NEVER below actual speed, ie you cannot unknowingly be exceeding any speed limit.

Have you checked your odometer over a know or measured distance?

Slower than actual.

I drove from Toronto to Calgary the trip counter was showing a few hundred km short.

Can you select a tyre size through the dash menu? If not I think you need to ask your dealer to check the correct tyre size has been programmed into the vehicles modules.

Also have you checked the speedometer against a GPS type device?

I have had my vehicle go to german one evening. It reset itself by the next day. Sounds very similar to yours. I mentioned it at the dealer once, yet it hasn't been a recurring issue so I haven't looked into it more.

My speed is also 5kmh slower that the speedo. The GPS on my phone, and roadside speed readings are my metric.

I'm using stock tires.
