Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is Marty.

Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 10 months ago

If the tail light bulbs and the bulb holder are good the problem will usually be a faulty rear signal acquisition module. The module activates the tail lights.

The rear signal acquisition module is part of the rear fuse box.
