Dude, You've got crazy mechanical skills jamming a v8 into an slk and you can't find the turn signal fuse? Time for concussion protocol.
Most likely a bit of carbon monoxide poisoning from my leaky exhaust...

In my defense, every single search that came up online said nothing about an interior fuse panel. Most of them were talking about a "comand module", or I assume the K40 relay module. some even said one of the SAM's is bad or to replace the hazard relay (which these don't have as a separate entity)

In all honesty, after doing all the electrical stuff that I did, I just assumed it was something serious..... I'm going to go lay in the fetal position now.

I had to take 5 points off the above for the misspelling
of
Comand. you spelt/spelled it command
I fixed it for you so the masses would not laugh

Mercedes' Comand — short for Cockpit Management and Data

back to basics

probably easiest to whip the bulbs out and check the holders and the bulbs themselves. then get on to the really wiggy stuff.

The 2 times it has happened now, it has been when I've had my headlights on.

perhaps those 2 front corner lamps are at fault.

wierder and wierder

and you have one of those funny US models that lights up like a christmas tree, so comparisons with my UK model might be limited. Do your front indicators light up as market lights, and then flash brighter as indicators?
