Basically I had some wires that I didn't know where they went, brown wires. I knew that there were two wires connected to the bulb housing itself, one is brown, the other I think is purple and white. I had to cut off another bulb housing from a salvage car, and soldered it to my existing wires. My problem was this, I had the wrong brown wire attached, I had to trouble shoot each brown loose wire I had in the console to get the right one. Repair manuals to give you this information, I have all types of Mercedes manuals for my car. At one point, someone had screwed up my console, so I am in the process of putting things back together.
When you say indicators, are you referring to instrument cluster bulbs? If so, you may need to take out your cluster and make sure your dimmer switch
(Reostat) is working, may need to turn the dial back and fourth so it can get its connection back. Once you understand these older Benzes, they are not that difficult to work on, you just need to keep playing with them.
