ok, does the display show in the center? or is the whole cluster totally dead?

so ANY lights or warning signs come on and when the lights are turned on does the dash brighten up?

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 8 months ago

ok, I will check for a fuse,

can you check every other function in the car and see if it works? like all switches and radio and what not?

Fuse box under the hood is good I checked it
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
All gauges are down
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 8 months ago

ok, fuse 28 is the fuse that is responsible for the power to the cluster.

not only check it, but make sure the fuse also has power with a test light.

it should have power at all times.

if it does then the cluster is bad. if you pull the fuse and wait a minute then re install it the cluster might come back alive.

if not the issue is the cluster.

here is a diagram as well so you know what fuses are what.

hope this helps.

for 100% accurate diagnosis you need to pull the cluster and check power and ground at the connection.

but most likely the cluster is dead.

Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may be paid for my assistance.5 stars is ideal :) .
