Help with 1986 300SE

My mother in law imported her 86 300SE over to the states and I am having a terrible time finding ANY info on it. Its a gray market vehicle and turns up pretty much nothing when searching for anything.

It needs to get inspected but the turn signals are out as well as the license bulbs. The mechanic ruled out the bulbs and said its probably the Light control module. But not being a MB mechanic and especially not being a gray market MB mechanic he didn't want to mess with it too much. So i'm turning to you folks for some help.

There are other issues with it, but I need to get it inspected to actually be able to drive it first. Is there any place to get technical data or other instruction manuals for this car? I've got a 2000 page shop manual for my truck but its a domestic. I wouldn't know where to even start to look for a car like this. And then theres the parts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
