An easy way to tell is that when you take the headlight relay out, all the headlights should go out as well. So try them one at a time. The other ones would be the turn signal flasher, fuel pump relay, emergency flasher, and AC relay.

Daytime running lights not working


Assuming this is an LX, check 7.5A fuses 9 and 5 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box. Fuse 9 applies power to the DRL indicator light in the gauge assembly which connects to the DRL control unit. Fuse 5 supplies power to the DRL control unit when the ignition is on. Also check 100A fuse 41 in the underhood fuse/relay box which supplies power to the headlight relays. Setting the headlight switch to HEAD causes the headlight relays to close and apply power through 20A fuses 45 and 43 in the underhood fuse/relay box to the low beams. Low beam power also passes through the DRL diode to close the high beam cut relay and prevent high beam use during DRL operation.

No brake lights or back-up lights fuses are good need wiring diagram


Its you headlight/bulb out indicator relay under the screwed down area behind your fuse box. Its longest relay in there. Failure rate for that age of vehicle is high for that part. Expensive new but cheap if you can get them froma bone yard. Also most W126 body styles have them also like the SEL's and SE's.

I had a similar problem on my 2001 Caravan. Turned out to be a loose connection between the frame control module and the fuse box. I unscrewed the frame/front control module from the fuse box and bent the tabs slightly to make better contact. Then tighten down the module securley. Need star driver to loosen screws

Is there another fuse box or panel besides the one on the drivers side under the hood on a 95 Mercedes Benz E320? Please help


there are relays under the screwed down portion of that box. One or 2 strip fuses are outside of the box for the Aux fans and blower motor which it says on the fuse card.

I cannot locate the auxiliary fan relay or the 4 way flasher realy on my 1984 380 SL


aux fan relay is under the screwed down section area connected to the fuse box. I do not recall where the flasher elay is but the headlight relay that controls power to all the lights is under that cover also and is the longest relay in there.

MY BACK LIGHTS AND BRAKE LIGHT IN WINDOW IS OUT, I REPLACED ALL RED/WHITE/BLUE FUSES, FRONT HEAD LIGHTS COME ON, FLASHERS ARE WORKING, BACK LIGHTS COME ON ONLY WHEN HEAD LIGHTS ARE ON, BUT WHEN I BACK UP...


Most likely culprit is the headlight relay under the screwed down cover on the fuse box. It is spendy but if you can find a used one in any W124 or W126 body style mercedes they are the same. it controls all lights as it also controls the bulb out indicator. The neutral safety switch would not allow your car to start if the lights wouldnt come on. Also replace all aluminum type fuses with newer copper barrel type fuses to get rid of any electrical gremlins due to corrosion.
