Customer Question
Hy, my rear leftside...

Hy, my rear leftside position light stopped workin. Have checked, bulb OK, fuses OK,Any suggestions pls?

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

Checked Fuses 39 &41 in the rear box and fuses 2 and 3 in the motor compartment

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

MB classe C 220 CDI Avantgarde model W 204 Product 2010

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

The answer is yes, i`m trying to, so, I replaced the bulb(it`s a LED one), - no go, I verified the bulb- it`s OK, measured the voltageand here`s a trick- without the bulb I got 11.86 volts and with the bulb I got 3.69 volts! So I thought it`s maybe a relay?

Trace the wiring for this light and see if any wiring is found to be damaged in any way needing to be repaired or replaced with this issue here.I have seen damaged or corroded wiring cause this type of fault here needing to be repaired or replaced.If this is or was checked already and found o.k. let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
