All lf theses functions run through a control module which in your model is either called a multifunction control module or convenience module i will have to recheck , but its a precursor to the modules we now call “sam”, its in the left front fuse box in engine back and runs all of the accessory and flasher functions. You would need to verify power and ground at that module and possibly replace it . I am not sure of your techical ability and diagnostic skills so let me know what you need and i can help you with it . Lou

I was a technician for 10 years for Ford so I can figure out some scenarios ( when my brain doesnt give out). I have checked all fuses. tried swapping some relays but I read somewhere it could be an ignition switch. I just need to get it figured out so I can fix it.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
is it directly under the rear section of the fuse box?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
in the engine compartment.
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago
In the engine compartment yes, let me get you a picture, you need to undo all of the phillips screws to the second cover of the fuse box to see it. If memory serves me its a long black box.
