Owners manual. The detailed fuse allocation can be found from a paper sheet at the fuse box.

Is there a 2nd battery in the car somewhere? ....plz help! I've thought MB was a reliable well engineered vehicle...after 8 months and four times in the shop I’m beginning to have doubts.
It so happens that this is a known problem with the W211 E-Class. My friend SJB's '03 E-500 had EXACTLY the same problem and after several warranty replacements of the battery (came to the house, even), untold time screwing around by the dealer techs, the cause was finally found to be an electronic component that was not "going to sleep" when the key was withdrawn. A very slow discharge led to a dead battery in two days or less.

If your dealer worked on this during the warranty period, backed up by your service invoices, they need to fix it.

Would you be able to ask more details, which part exactly was the problem, does the part need to be replaced or is there a SW update?
