I listened to it just once. It would be good to write down the key sequences that the youtube poster used to bypass the error messages.
Yeah but you need some fancy diagnosis software for this to work, right?

Mercedes Benz keeps many secret codes but keeping things running is the ultimate goal.
in some ways my 2014 MB GLK250BT was not equipped with every accessory ...I did not buy off a MB Lot rather waited one month to have the vehicle built with only the things I wanted in Germany.The Salesperson did not pressure me but told me that he got a poor rating because he did not pressure me to purchase everything.He lasted two months at the dealership.
Easiest vehicle I ever bought...As I mentioned before, I do not have big pockets and one visit to their service department taught a big lesson in overcharging for every rag & part they said I needed.Granted if you buy a Mercedes it is expected that a premium will be paid for filters,parts .
Mobil One is Mobil One , MB Filter can be acquired other than the Dealership. I bought Mercedes Brand DEF on-line which was less costly than a dealer refilling my DEF.The location of the place to fill the DEF is not convenient but it has not been a problem.I have gotten a wealth of information,advice from senior Members of the Forum..thanks...

I don't think so. He was just using his Xentry diagnosis software to show that his method did turn off the trouble codes. It is otherwise not needed.

Ok, I will re-watch it. I pretty much turned my brain off when I saw him fiddling around with his laptop.

In response to your inquiry , I purchased the following Scan tool through Amazon Prime.
Autel AL519 Color Screen OBII/canScan tool
USD $ $66.46
There are other type scan tools on the market but I found the directions easy to understand ,steps are easy to follow. for this particular model. Review the specifications and see if this product will suit your needs.Periodic use of a scan tool can assist with identifying problems before you go for a repair..a back-up to compare what the mechanic technician says...In my case , as stated before ,I was able to solve the check engine problem and used an approved additive to fix the bad diesel fuel...during a cold winter fuel problem. As our diesel vehicles are used in Winter , certain things can be done to get peak performance during Cold Starts.
Wanted to tell you….received my car back after the engine light and 10 starts at around 15k. Invoice says "Updated selective catalytic reduction module software, performed extensive road test, reset Adblue Nox sensors adaption."

I will look into a scan tool. Thank you for your help. :-)

Yes. The car just stops and you'll need to get it towed to a dealer. This happened to my 2012 ml250

I'm in Aus

Cost me well over $7000 to replace/fix. It's now come back "check adbllue" 2 years later

Anyone have a solution yet?

Maybe you need to check the AdBlue level? It needs topping off usually every oil change.

DEF Check on a regular basis MB 2014 GLK 250

Responding to 2 emails concerning Strategies with adding DEF.
I check and add Blue Def every two weeks approximately one bottle to my reservoir and do not wait until I get a warning of a shut-down.
Checking fluids Oil, Brake, Antifreeze level is done with DEF Check. Though the location for USA Sourced vehicles reservoir location is inconvenient, I check.
I do not wait until DEF becomes low enough that warnings have appeared. The amount of DEF used seems to be greater during the warmer months and always carry two bottles with the adapter.
I refill these bottles with Approved Specification BLUE DEF . I have used Mercedes Brand as well as other approved product Prestone, BluDEF and other brands that meet standards without problems.
Most difficult is the problem with diesel fuel during seasonal change Summer to Winter blends. The MB DEALER charges 3x $$$ for DEF during Maintenance services as well as the $2 shop rag and the $10 fee for WD-40 like spray.
The change and check and do my own cabin filter, air filter, the oil changes using the proper metric tools.If you have a maintenance plan then all power to you.
