Post Lamp Defective, Electrical Problem?

I have a 1997 Mercedes E420 that always has the lamp defective light on. When I change the bulb that is out another bulb will just go out in a day or so. Also when I try to move my seat sometime it will go back instead of forward or vise versa. I am thinking this might be sometype of electrical problem. Any suggestions?

You have a W210 and we have a dedicated forum (sedans section) and a lot of info for FAQs in the stickys. Please join us there as at least your seat control issue has been discussed and solved for some. Welcome to the forum.

I think the bulb out indicator issue has been discussed more than the seat problem. Yep, check out your chassis specific forum below.
