Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

Instrument cluster, air, headlights, blinker, and radio shut off and restart when four of these five are turned on

I was sitting at an idle I had my radio, headlights, and air blowing all functioning. When I turned on my blinker the instrument cluster, air, radio, and blinker slowly started dimming and then shut down. My car did not die but did bog down, when I stepped on the gas all the components came back on. I changed the alternator about six years ago. Could this be another alternator issue or relay?

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

Practically you can check on the harness and connectors to the instrument cluster for loose connectivity. remove the dashboard carefully and cehcck for dry solder or loose connections, use a lens to check for pcb line break or cracks.
