Hi all, 99 R170,on Sunday I went to carwash they did undercarriage was, outside I was drying the access water, I noticed the fog lights and the parking lights stayed on, I tried to turn /push the light switch on of, didnt help, I had to disconnect the battery so it wont drain, yesterday, the fog lights were not on when I turn the ignition off I noticed only passanger side parking lamp and the tail lamp staying on, so still disconnecting the battery, is it coincident that the relay is stuck? if so where is parking light relay, is it in the K40 module or where? I think it has nothing to do with the fuses, because with the switch lights works, I am thinking its a relay related, any ideas? i would appreciate if anyone have a solution, its PITA to disconnect the battery everywhere. Thank you all in advance
Ardo

Well hopefully someone will recognise the symptoms but if nothing comes up maybe see if you can get hold of a module from a breakers.

Hi Rofa, again thank you for your response, who are breakers?

A car dismantler....... It's just that these units are expensive new and unless you can positively identify the cause, a cheap second hand unit might be a quick way to identify the problem. Or take the car to a MB specialist.

There are no separate relays for these lights, as said Lighting Module is 99% certain to be the culprit ;)

HTH :)

For both of my Post-FL's (RHD) the p/n is 170 545 0504 - yours will be a different p/n based on (a) you have a LHD and (b) yours is a Pre-FL
