    sorry i can't find that car in my data base. is this a out of us model? if so i will not be able to get any info on it.

    but because it is a Mercedes it has a lighting computer/module and my need to have it's adaptives reset by the dealer or some one with the compatible software for Mercedes. i am sure that will solve this issue.

    happens to me all the time and i have to put it on my computer to relearn it then allset/

    hope this helps. good luck

1987 toyota pickup lost all electrical except headlights


What works? Just headlights? Does anything electrical work that does not need the ignition switch to be in the on position? Possibly four way flashers, brake lights, horn, interior light, dash lights in instrument panel as well as headlights should all work without the key in the ignition and in the acc or on position. If this is what you have, then I would say you need to replace the ignition switch.
Hope this helps.

Checked fuses, none blown, all lights do not work except headlights. I have changed the multi-function switch and still no lights.


its probably the headlight switch. the headlights work, but the taillights don't, and the instrument panel lights don't work either. i have had this on another ford model.

does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.
