Question about 1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
1996 C-180 manual saloon. Over a few months there has been an internittent problem with the turn indicators and intermittent wipers not working. When this happens, the indicator light in the heated rear screen glows faintly. When the indicator light is off all works normally but when the indicator light is on the intermitten wipers and turn indicators again do not work. The problem has progressivley worsened has now seems to have become permanent. It sounds like a faulty earth to me but I would like to know 1. what common wiring there is for these three components and 2. Is there a simple re-earthing I could carry out to attempt to rectify the problem?
Electrical problems are rife in these models. Try replacing the relevant relay box - a black box situated in the fuse box bay. This will hopefully solve your problem. Good luck!
