Fast solution:
Assuming all fuses are OK.
Check the filaments (look for a broken filament wire) in the old bulb to make sure it's a bulb problem. If the old bulb is truely defective, check the new bulb to make sure it does not have a broken filament. If the bulb looks OK, take a look at the socket to make sure that it is not rusty or corroded. If the socket contacts are not clean, take a small piece of fine sandpaper and clean both the center contact and the inside of the socket.
If you have tried these things, and the light still does not come on, you'll have to do a continuity trace of the wiring to fine where the power to the bulb is being interrupted.

Check in your vehicle fuse box for the side lights fuse if is blown. Most of the vehicles separate the lights with fuses to work.

Passat back light


The light bulbs are probably dual element bulbs which would mean your night lights are separate from your brake and signal lights, even if they are in the same bulb. Replace the bulbs with new ones of the exact same type.

Why won't my MB ml350 brake lights work even after i install new bulbs?


Did you check the fuse? Either the fuse may be out, or the brake light swith on the brake pedal may be out or need adjusting. You should have 12 volts at the brake switch.

Rick,
The brake lamps on your Mercedes are computer-controlled. I would recommend scanning your computer network for possible fault codes.

Turn signal works periodically, even with a new bulb.


I had an issue where my passenger side from harness was damaged and it didnt sit into the boot all the way. You may want to check if it is seated properly, it did seem to take a bit of force to get it securely into the boot. Also if this doesnt fix it, inspect your boot and harness to ensure no wear or damage that may prevent the bulb from seating properly. You can get a new harness at the dealer for around 30 dollars.
