Hi,

 

This is a common problem with the dash on the S Class & I would check with your local dealer to see if there is any goodwill contribution from Mercedes towards repairs.

 

The fault is usually an internal short inside the dash, your dealer will only be able to replace the dash as one complete unit which are very expensive as a new part.

 

If you have no joy with getting any goodwill payment from Mercedes then it may be possible to send your dash away for repair, here is a link to a company that may be able to repair your dash:

 

BBA Reman Dash

 

This will be far cheaper than a new unit from Mercedes!

 

Best regards, Paul
