Unhappy My new C180, mirror and SRS faults, please help

I have recently bought a 2006 c180 kompressor through the trade and am delighted with the car but it has 2 minor faults and from reading these forums there seems to be a lot of info about them but if i could get a more specific answer towards my vehicle it would be very much appreciated

Its a cracking car, and seeing as im only 22 i went for the c180 for insurance reasons lol

but the car is showing 2 malfunctions on the trip computer..

1) 'turn signal, left mirror' (which is not working)
2) 'SRS malfunction, visit workshop'

I am a mechanic myself and have scanned the car for fault codes and erased the SRS light but it reappears, im lost

i checked wiring and connections, fuses and relays for the mirror and the all look good but i thought L.E.D. bulbs lasted forever??

Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance, Andy!

I work for an independent workshop, we have O.B.D.2 diagnostic equiptment, but only an Airbag/SRS reset tool... when i scanned the car, no trouble codes were showing, but used the reset tool to merely turn the light off?

I rang my nearest Merc dealer today to price up a new L.E.D. bar, it was only €37, and aparently they had 6 in stock... i thought that might suggest they sell a lot of them because they are faulty? but i dont want to fork out if this isint the prob as they said they wouldnt refund the part if opened???

Thanks...

I just realised, you said you are a mechanic? YES? Then why did you not transfer the mirror from the other side of the car to test?

Sorry dude if I seem a little strong on you but I have been a benz tech since the 60's and now teach Chinese teens the ropes. If you have run all the checks you can then the opposite mirror has the same connector and should work ok on the opposite door providing the DCM (door control module) is OK.

So you would be testing two parts in one go, get it?

Appreciate very much appreciated dont worry! I think that is one of those things thats so 'staring you in the face obvious' i just didnt get it haha

open both mirrors, take l/h L.E.D. bar out, connect it to r/h mirror... if it still doesnt work, L.E.D. bar wants replacing, if ot does work, its the door module in theory anyhow

In theory correct, as long as you checked out the wiring correctly. As to the SRS problem, you chaps should use a code reader that actually gives codes. You are way behind the times.

I'l let you know how it goes....
And in relation to the S.R.S. we are using 'Easy-OBDII' which doesnt cover SRS or Airbag trouble codes as far as im aware? im open to correction on this im in no position to tell 'the managment' what tools they need at the moment... tbh in these condition im glad im able to finish my trade and not be laid off!
i was/am doing checks while on lunch breaks, so i dont want to appear to be a leach, using the tools and moaning about incompatability lol
