Ok, when you look at the display, you see a cup something else, which looks like wheels, then two cars side by side, the left car has what looks like a lolly pop sign next to it and the other car to its right, changes color from white to green, from time to time. Hope that's been of help...

Thank you, sorry I cannot explain it better, I'll call in to a dealer tomorrow.


I mean dash board, does that help..


I personally rebuild an sl-500 for fun, replaced every single monitor and computer module the car has, so I assure you i am confident in finding an answer, what year may I ask?

sounds like it may be a kinda new version of the car with some sort of collision detection perhaps???


year of the car would be helpful tho


I believe the question is referring to part of the Driver Assist Package, so it must be a newer SL-Class. Specifically, the Active Lane Keeping Assist. When the icon depicting the rear of a Mercedes vehicle located between two parallel lines (traffic lines) is illuminated GREEN, it means that the Active Lane Keeping Assist is ON and active.


collision detection, lane assist, nearly rite!

On the newer MB's - it is the lane keeping assist. It can be turned on or off thru the settings menu. If it has this option - it probably also has the "coffee cup" icon also. Which is to detect inactivity from the steering wheel - such as on a long stretch of Interstate highway.
