We just picked up our 2008 E350 4Matic. When I open the glove box there is no light inside. I called my salesman and he wasn't sure if it had one or not.
Does the glove box have a light and if so, is there anything special you need to do to turn it on? I have a hard time believing that a car over $50,000 doesn't have such a light.
Hi, Tom. Congrats on your purchase!
I have a W210 (previous E-generation to yours), the glove box light on mine won't come on unless the key is in the ignition. Since you have keyless go, try yours with the engine running and see if it comes on. If not, call a SA, there may be some other "feature" about it. And be sure to dope-slap your salesman next time you're there, he sounds like he should be selling Kias, not MBs.
When you're really bored, read through the manual, likely there is some mention of that in there, plus a whole host of other things you'd never have guessed.
Finally, whenever you have a question relating more to your specific model, you're usually better off posting in the W211 forum, scroll down the page until you see it.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
