changed my turn signal bulbs last night and the bulbs a i changed them with "looked" the same but it was kind of dark and couldnt see the number....now this morning on my way to work...one side signal (from the inside) just stays on constant, and the other side flashes but doesnt make a sound :confused: ..

wrong/type bulb?? thats my guess....cant do anything till i get home this evening but i thought that would be the problem? just hoping its not something more........expensive...

It sounds like it's not making the connection. It could be the wrong part or just not plugged in properly. I don't know what the ML does when a bulb blows, but this is how other cars let you know that the bulb is blown or the connection is not being made.

I suppose it's also possible that your new bulb is blown. Shake it and see if you hear a rattle inside.

Ah! Clever!

Did you check from the outside, using the turn signal?
