Hi all, I'm Pete from England
Bought E220, 2002, W210, recently,
Last week, noticed that the indicator lamps did not flash when unlocking /locking the car.
Then while driving the indicators stopped working - very intresting drive home without indictors!!
The central locking system opened locked/Unlocked all doors BUT the tailgate.
The car started OK - Instrument Cluster background lighting worked and SRS indicator lamp showed On/Off
as normal -
NO watertemp/ fuel gauge / Adjust wing mirrors
No hazard flashers
No direction left/right indicators / or small side lamp indicators.
Still WORKING OK are:
Headlamps /Hi-Lo beam, dipping and flash, OK
Rear lamps/stoplamps/ reversing /foglamps, OK
All interior lamps / fade down and off, OK
Radio/ cigarlighter, OK
Slide/tilt sunroof, doorwindows up/down, OK
interior heater Fan OK
windscreen wipers or water jets OK
Starter/ alternator/ battery charging, OK
Car starts normally
I've triple checked every fuse in the four fusebox, both for voltage continuity in-situ and individually
for resistance continuity when out of fuseboxes.
It would seem perhaps a relay has failed but they are difficult to locate and lack of wiring diagram makes it almost impossible to trace circuitry.
I could drive the car - But with NO indicators, hazard flasher is both Foolish and Illegal - and I could land up in serious trouble in more ways than one !!!
Gentlemen, I would seriously welcome any positive indication or inspired guesses of where to look for possible source of the problem.
Thank you all for reading this far,
