CLS550 2010. Same complaint trunk won't open, third brake light and license plate lights not working. Two ground wires (Brown) were broken inside the bundle of wires right were the zip tie holds them to the trunk lid arm. When I first looked I missed them. Remove all the corrugated wire protection and look the wires over very closely. One of them was broken inside but the wire just looked kinked on the outside. The other was broken in too. 7/9/17

SOURCE: License Plate light and tail lights on trunk led not working.

I had the same problem on a 2008 Civic. It turns out it was a poor wiring harness design. The harness was being pinched as the trunk lid opens and closes. In the wire bundle, there is a crimp connector where 3 wires connects to 1 wire. The 1 wire in the crimp came loose. I reconnected everything with a new crimp connector, taped up the wire loom, and everything worked once again.

Even Mercedes Service Departments cannot agree what is involved on a D service.
It is usually the 2 year periodic maintenance which includes transmission service, oil service and visual check of running components.

Most all Mercedes Dealers will write this up as a B service. It's up to you they don't over service the vehicle. Some MB dealers will sell you shocks and/or rear axle oil brake fluid flush, coolant flush and wiper replacement and who knows what else.

I suggest you find a GOOD independent Mercedes specialist and ask for a B service and report on any items needing attention.

Ask them to reset your Service FSS or oil interval reminder in the cluster, or do it yourself....it's in your Handbook around page #290. iirc.

Cost can be anywhere between $200.00 and $600.00.

I believe your 3rd brake light should be located along the bottom of your window. If so, the screws holding it down will be located in your trunk. Open your trunk and look up along the top trim of your trunk (area that is behind trunk lid) and you should see two screws.
