hi I have just aquired a 1993 e280t estate and have no rear door lights or tailgate interior lights ,no rear fog light or parking light function ?

everything else is good ,have checked bulbs and all fuses in the underbonnet fuse box ,could it be a relay ? or something that would knock out those items.

i havent got a wiring diagram so a little stuck - am ok with diy electrics if know where to look (got a multimeter i can use)

any ideas guys many thanks in advance

If you're talking about lighting problems in just the rear hatch, most probably it's the harness that goes into the hatch...pinched, corroded...some break in continuity etc. Common problem for a hatch door that's been used a lot over the yrs. They're a real pain too...to hunt down the area where the trouble is.:(
