Mercedes-benz w203 light switch replacement – (2001-2007) c230, c280, c350, c240, c320 pelican parts diy maintenance article emoji gas station


Comments: Hi Guys. Should the display on the light switch illuminate in the dark. I have just bought my second W203 C180 Coupe and there is no illuminated lights on the light switch just above the parking brake release handle. Is this normal or does it not aluminate in the dark at all? Thanks for the response

Comments: I have a 2002 W203 C Class. None of my lights are working unless I use the "constant" setting from the steering wheel settings. In "manual" none of the lights including fogs come on when using the rotary switch. Full beam works in either multifunction setting when pulling the headlight stalk toward the steering wheel, but only remain on when in "constant" mode. In addition the mirror adjustments don’t work but did not work prior to the lighting issue. The headlight washer does not work either which it did prior to the lighting issue. I have checked the various fuses which appear to be fine.

Followup from the Pelican Staff: Sounds like a bad switch or harness. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If the system is not working properly, a fault code will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing. you can also check switch signal using a scan tool.

Comments: I have a 2000 C230 Kompressor Mercedes Benz. I have no headlights unless I hold the switch for high beams. I also have no tail lights. All the rest of the lights work. What could this be? Was thinking it was the switch but it’s expensive and would like to make sure it’s nothing else. We checked all the regular fuses an none was blown. Any help please.

Comments: My w203 2000 light witch suddenly broke down only the head light are working when I turn it to the right other things are not working at all including the mirrors adjusting and closing. Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem ?

Followup from the Pelican Staff: This could be a faulty control module or communication break in the bus. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If multiple systems are not working properly, fault codes will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing.

Comments: Hi. my C32 has an issue with the mirror adjustment switch, no matter whether I press the "up" or "down" button, it will only goes down. I need to use my "memory position" to get back to the correct setting. Therefore I no longer can adjust the passenger mirror for reverse parking. Have you ever heard of this mirror issue before? Do you think if I swap a second hand unit and this should fixed the issue?

Comments: I am not sure, and I don’t know how to check does it have daytime running lights or not? If it has, is there any possibility to change, because according to my country’s regulations I can drive just with position lights on. Now it is impossible and it bothers me !!! Please tell me how to check does it have daytime running lights. Thank you !!!

Comments: My w203 2002 has headlights on even the light switch is on "0" position and in the instrument table the "manual" lighting is selected. On dark time, headlights go on in the moment ignition switch is in position "1", during the day time the headlights go on after you start the engine. Please some advise me what is the problem ? Thank you !!!
