i did find fuse 52 blown in the front sam and i keeps on blowing. I started the car and tried again and it blew again
Mercedes Mechanic: Pete, Mercedes Mechanic replied 2 months ago

I apologize for the delay as I have been away since the 1st until now.

Has anything aftermarket been installed at all that may be causing this fuse to short out?

Let me know, thanks Pete
