1973 280SEL Questions
Hi everyone, I just joined the forum having recently acquired a beautiful 1973 280SEL 4.5 (US Spec) with 94K miles. It was owned by the original owner since new (passed away), and was exceptionally well maintained, but I do have a couple issues to deal with. Can someone kindly answer these questions??
1. is the trunk suppose to have a trunk light? I see it marked on a fuse diagram but I don't actually see any light in there
2. there is a little green light on the light switch but it doesn't illuminate. Is that little light associated with fog lights, which this vehicle doesn't have?
3. neither the rear reading lamps, nor rear dome light, seem to be working despite receiving new bulbs. My voltmeter shows no power to the light assemblies either. The front dome light works fine. Any ideas what to look for.. I've eliminated fuse issues too.
Thanks much , sorry to say hello with a question.
