Mercedes is a great car- till you have a fuel problem, vacuum leak or electrical problems!!!!!! I'm guessing you may be ok this time though, by just checking all your fuses. Check your operators manual so you know the location of ALL fuses.

No lights on dash when ignition turned on, was OK then engine stopped while driving Peter lanty


A couple of questions. Did you recently wipe down the dashboard and is this a newer vehicle? The reason I ask is that I did this on my '09 Ram and it would start but all gauges and lights were out for a day until the moisture cleared! If that's the case it's probably fine in a day or two, if not check your fuses.

Oil light on dashboard.


That means that your oil light is working correctly... that is actually your oil "pressure" light and if your engine is not running the sensor is telling the computer that there is not oil pressure. Once your engine is started then the light will go off

I have a warning light that flashes so fast I can't tell what it


Wow. Ok. That was a pretty rude response you received there form r_clark. Let's see if we can find a reasonable way to help you.

When you first get in your car, instead of starting it right up, turn the key to the "on (or run)" position. With the key on, but the engine off, most of your warning lights will light up and stay lit. Some may go off after a few seconds. Draw a quick sketch of the layout of your dashboard before doing this. Then, with the warning lights all on, jot the name and location of each one on your sketch. The next time you are driving, when the light flickers on and off, you should have a fair idea of what it is.

Also, if you are in the process of actually starting the car when this happens, keep in mind that when you turn the key through "on" to "start" and then release it, the vehicle's self test for the dash will turn all those warning lights on, then off, briefly. Certain important lights will come on last and only flicker on briefly. As long as they are doing that during start up, they are ok, and it just means the lights are working properly. If they are actually flickering on while driving or idling, then you have a problem, but likely not a serious one yet.

Hope this is helpful, good luck, and let me know how it works out!
