Hi all,

Need help for my S320 L !!!:surrender::surrender::surrender:

The problem was with my left rear lights (brake, signal, and reverse light) as it doesn't do the job. The rear right lights are all in working condition.

I have checked all the fuses are okay, none blown out.

Also, problem with rear head restraints.

Really appreciates for any help I can get

I think that each set of rear lights has its own common ground connection to chassis, so may be the one for the left side has become disconnected.

What's happening with the head restraints?

Hi MikeJT, Do you know where the ground connection is?

About the head restraints, it no longer up or down when I pushed the button. The motor works fine, because i can hear it works.

Thanks before. :crybaby2::crybaby2::crybaby2:

Having looked at mine I would say that it is less likely to be the ground connection but may be the multi-way socket is not plugged in properly.

If you open the access flap in the LH rear of the boot (trunk) that lets you get to the bulbs, you will see a multi-way plug connected at the bottom outer corner of the lighting unit. If you remove the black plastic rivet from the corner of the fixed piece of trunk lining - near to the open edge of the flap - you can pull back the lining more and get better access to the plug. You can also see the brown ground connections going from the wiring loom to the chassis stud.

I would check that the plug is fully engaged and that there are no broken ground wire connections.

Sorry, can't comment on the head restraint.

Hi Mike,

Found it! It seems the multi socket loose, after tighten it, the light works.

Thank a Lot !!!:):):)
