Driver Side Parking Lights staying on
Whilst this is a desirable feature to allow you to turn the parking lights on for one side only, especially for Europe with its narrow roads, that seems to be a flaw with many Mercs and not just mine and it is not always the driver having switched them on by mistake:
I drive into the dark garage during the day, the "courtesy lights" come on and they look like standard driving lights, those driving lights go off after a few minutes BUT while the light switch is on zero AND if I am unlucky the RH parking lights come on later on to empty the battery, nasty! Suggestions here seems to be the faulty light switch or driver side fuse/relay box (SAM), both a dear solution.
From memory, it has been suggested rain may have entered the SAM?? Any idea what in the SAM does that evil thing so I can fix it? Or if it is easy to change the light switch?
