Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

ok we can try and pull the fuse to the panel and see if it resets it.

give me a few minutes to pull up the fuse info.

I will respond as soon as I can .

i do have to step away for a phone call as well,

but i will be on the rest of the night, so bear with me we can get something figured out.

I just realized that my night vision and the controls to manipulate the headlights aren’t working either. Sounds like a dude issue that operates the dash board

Fuse issue

Is it near the windshield in a black box?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I don’t have a tool to open it

yes, oh, i dont remember these needing a tool, do they have small allen heads?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

forgot they did that......

i do not think there is a allen tool in the spare tire kit as well

well then we are at a standstill until you try that.

i would suggest to remove the battery cables but then it will cause more hassle after we reconnect.

when you can you will need to go to a parts store and get a allen socket and then we can continue.

Ok thanks
No problem . If pulled the fuse does not help then you’ll have to go to a shop that has a scanner that can read codes to see what might’ve happened . Hope this information helps , Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may receive my credit for helping, 5 STARS is ideal. Please request me in the future! Keep in mind that when you rate it does NOT end our conversation, you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed just simply reply back, THANKS!

I just checked most the fuses that are supposed to regulate the problems that I’m having. They all look good. I couldn’t get two of the fuses out though
Ok then we wil have to have the car scanned to see what codes are in the car .
