Hi Virginia, a phone call is an additional $26 charge but it will be much faster talking on the phone. I've sent you an additional service offer for the phone call if you would like to talk on the phone.

It is only the front lights staying on and the cabin fan
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 23 days ago

Ok, for the front lights he will need to disconnect the headlight switch. If the lights turn off it would indicate a fault with the switch.

For the cabin fan, if only the fan is staying on and not the control on the dash the problem would typically be a faulty blower regulator.

If the car has been idle for 3 years there is always the chance of rodent damage. Rodents tend to nest in cars and gnaw on the wiring. They can gnaw all the way through a wire or gnaw through bunches of wires and cause short circuits.
