Well i got into my E500 today and under the light switch there are two little symbols for the fog lights one on the left and one on the right. The right one is always lit up with a green glow. Even when the car is off its always on.

When i turn on the fog lights they glow yellow/orange colour. Does anyone know why its green and on 24.7 has never been on before until today.

Thanks

The green light indicates front foglights on and the orange light means rear foglight on too.

Push the switch toward the dash to turn them off, and then if lights remain on you likely have a defective switch.

well the front fog light is off when the green light is on so i guess the switch is faulty.

Even my 99 ML has the one sided light on the rear when the switch is activated.

Just curious if MB mysteriously stopped including owner's manuals with these cars...

Just to relieve some of the mystery all Mercedes models have the rear fog light..
Where is it you ask???? It is located inside of the rear taillight housing on the driver's side (US). Easiest way to see it is to have somebody turn it off and on and see the difference. The fog light does exist but it is not very bright (and red) for obvious reasons not to blind the person behind you..

fair enough about the rear foglight, anyway back to the original topic, the light indicator for front fogs has been on for 1 week now 24/7 even thought the fogs are off and car is not running. I booked my car in yesterday with mercedes benz to have it checked out and when i went to my car today the green light was off and everything was working as normal. Dont you love when that happens.
