My rear entertainment system...

My rear entertainment system is not powering up... I looked in the fuse box to replace fuse #23 and there wasn't one.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

Yes...it is the correct box

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2012 r350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your R350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes...I'm just hooking up the rear displays. it was quite easy

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The rear displays I installed are factory command. These are the exact display the come with a 2012 r350. This particular vehicle did not have them installed. It was pre-wired.
