Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

ELECTRICAL ISSUES OCCASIONALY A BUNCH OF STUFF STOPS WORKING. TURN SIGNALS, POWER SEATS, SEAT HEATERS, WINDOWS,GARAGE DOOR OPENER, AND RADIO. ONCE WHEN IT HAPPENED, I ACCIDENTLY FLASHED THE HIGHBEAMS AND THEN THE SRS LIGHT CAME ON AND EVERYTHING WORKED AS NORMAL. THIS WAS A PRETTY GOOD REMEDY FOR A WHILE. SO I REPLACED THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH THINKING THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. IT DID THE TRICK FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS, BUT NOW IT'S BACK. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS I WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL.

Sounds like dealer only owing to complexity of software used and a general garage wouldnt have it.but do the obvious first like battery terminals,feed connections and earths for the main supplys .does this car have a main supply box??iam sure it does so clean and grease all the contacts,look for a blackened connection

Power steering fluid is low again after 1 week. Luke warm air blowing when heat is on. Driver side heated seat works intermittently. Does anyone know where the replacement turn signal flasher goes?


Rack and pinion most likely leaking, Check thermostat on heater problem, seat heaters work on the purge switching so is more than likely the switch, most flashers are plugged into fuse box. If not are clipped on solid near car radio use turn signal switch manually and see if you can hear it clicking as you work switch off and on

Got an electrical issue with my 99 suburban. Back up lights don't work, both sides. I have other electrical issues don't know if they are related. Seat heaters work off and on, front passenger door...


My gfs envoy does this stuff too. Weirdly i found a wiring harness under the driver seat that has a mind of its own. When these problems happen look under the driver seat and move the wiring harness around. It fixed my problem, it may be a connection that is not making good contact in that harness.

My heated seats, easy exit seat, cruise control, and odometer lights were all effected by this one harness

If all power devices stopped at the same time you may have a bad fuse link. Since it is rare for all the fuses blowing at once and you already checked them. Start at your fuse links before assuming something expensive.
