Reverse Lights not working and engine starts on any gear

Mercedes Benz E320 year 1997 W210 in South Africa, reverse lights are not working and I can start the engine on any gear. Problem started after changing the drive shaft coupling to the gear box. The gearbox was slightly lowered to ease the job. All the bulbs have been checked and are in good working order.

What do I need to do?

You have a reverse indicator switch on you transmission. You will need to make sure that it didn’t come unplugged or that the wire didn’t break. This is a single wire that should be close to the rear of the transmission.

Which fuse is the cigaret lighter fuse in a 2003 e320. the cigaret lighter is not working


Engine compartment (left side), fuse #1 and #6. In MB cigar lighter only works when key is on.

I think you have a W211 if it's a sedan. W210 only goes thru 2002.

Also check the lighter filament. It may just be burned out.
