I hate the crap electric in the W220 Ever since I got the thing the driver side marker has been blinking as normal. The dash says that the marker is non op. I figure it may be the original bulb is bad, so I change it. New bulb is very nice and orange, bright, and blinks like the old one.

So I found the fuse chart in a paper that was folded up and tucked in the fuse box, it has the map for all the boxes in Deutsche, Anglis, and some other language. Found the ciggy lighter fuse, and of course there are no spare fuses and no fuse puller thingie. Had a 15A fuse in my toolbox so

we will never get the quality of cars that used to be made. Now it is all plastic and wires. Beyond the ability of the standard user to diagnose or repair, unless you are Penoff. Priapis driving neighbor thinks that his plastic car will last a long time. All that plastic will be able to get

The Klebster would have a better idea of what is covered with later model stuff. You’ll see the system identified as a “C3” or C4”. I believe the C4 has wifi capabilities and doesn’t require a physical connection to the car to be used. Again, I know Kaleb is up to speed on the later stuff, so

There are different parameters for the aux fan turn on temperature, for example, as well as changes to the interior blower fan speed, too. For the later models like my W220 Mercedes has profiles set up in the software for various applications. In this case there are profiles for the climate

So my wife wants to power her phone from a cig plug charger in the 2012 ML. There is a ciggy lighter in the front console, and the manual shows either/both a 12V socket there, but hers only has the ciggy lighter. I try to get the lighter out, push it down, nothing happens. So I pry it out,

I found some pdfs of the charts for the 4(!!!) fuse boxes that some MB tech posted, including a vid that shows where the pass side panel is (not where the manual says it is). I guess they are findable on some MB maintenance server somewhere, probably only accessible by techs. She just left

That's nothing. My 2003 S430 (W220) has four fuse boxes. And some electrical items have electronic fuses as MB calls them. It's a fancy name for saying that they're using an SCR to control a circuit, and it limits current if it sees a ground or short circuit. Makes troubleshooting tough
