I just bought a 2006 C350 4Matic a couple of days ago and noticed the windshield wipers were not turning on. The washer fluid button also did not work. I did notice however that both worked when I had the turn signal on for either direction. Thought this was really strange. This is my first Benz so this kind of stuff is very new to me. I saw some posts regarding the wipers not working but none mentioned this situation with the turn signals. Anyone know what's wrong or how I can fix this?

Yep, you'll have to replace the whole switch mechanism.

Yeah I talked to the Benz dealer yesterday and they think the stalk needs to be replaced too. They're looking at it on Mon. Any ideas how much this might cost me and how long of a job this might be?

Got it looked at by the Dealer today and it was the stalk that needed to be replaced. Apparently this is a common issue where the wires go bad within the combination switch (stalk).
