So I recently purchased a 2000 Ml430. I'm having an issue with the headlights. While I can get the headlights to turn on partially, here is what I found...(I've attached pictures with the corresponding number) 1. When placing the headlight switch to "p" nothing at all happens. No lights anywhere. This is with the car both on and off..... 2. When placing the headlight switch to the first or second position, the instrument panel turns on and the low beams do as well. No city lights, no halos, no lower amber lights..... 3. When the high beams are engaged, and the headlight switch is on, the low beams remain on, the halos light up, the city lights are on and the lower amber lights are on too. However, the high beam headlight remains off.... 4. When just engaging the high beams via pulling back on the switch, only the halos, city lights and lower amber lights turn on..... Any help to get this back to normal operating would be great.
To add just a few things here... the headlight bulbs are both h7 in the high and low beam slots. From what I can gather, it should be h1 for high, and h7 for low. Looks like someone may have modified this in the past for some odd reason. I've included pictures of the connector as well. Maybe directions on which wire should feed what would work here for me. I've checked fuses, bulbs.
