W202 Headlamps Switch "KONGG"...
Dear Benzito's,

Not my day! While driving back from Ipoh to KL my lights went dead, total blackout. My bad luck i was driving at night around 8.30pm. I quickly realised it was the switch to on and off our lights. I had no choice but to turn back. Too much roadworks on the highway to continue my journey! I had to use 1 hand holding[pull] the light switch continuously and another to drive all the way from Kampar back to Batu Gajah. Then drove my mum's Kelisa back to KL.

Has anyone come across this problem wt ur W202?? The car is still in Ipoh now. I would appreciate if some one could tell me $how much$ and where i could get it fixed for a reasonable price as my Dad has to go and fix it fr me.[takut orang tua kena sembelih]hehe...

All help n feedback is much appreciated...Cheers

Re: W202 Headlamps Switch "KONGG"...
Let me get this straight... the light switch won't remain in the no. "I" / "II" position (i.e. it's broken)? Or when you switch it from "O" to "I" / "II"... the lights won't come on until you manually hold it to a certain angle?

I'm assuming that your high beam isn't working as well?

If the switch isn't broken, it may well be a wiring problem... and it's easily fixed by a mechanic. It should not cost a bomb. Best bet is to find a Merc mechanic to sort it out. If you can't source a reliable Merc mechanic in Ipoh (which if true is weird since there are a lot of Merc driving Towkays there)... then I guess you'll have to drive your mom's Kelisa and retrieve your Merc in the daytime!

My W202 has lighting related gremlins too. Sometimes, the front left and the rear left lights would not function (though it doesn't happen simultaneously). The bulbs are fine... and usually I sort the prob out myself by just jiggling the wires that are connected to the bulbs. My reverse light too won't come on unless the gear lever is jiggled into the "correct" position when "R" is selected. To get this fixed, Ah Tee says I've to leave the car at the workshop for a bit coz the gear console has to be removed for the problem to be rectified.

Anyhow, bottom-line... it shouldn't cost a bomb if it's not broken!

Bro sachseelan,
Sorry I didn't notice this thread earlier. Have you solved your problem?

I replaced the light switch few months back. Bought it at Keras Jaya for RM168.

Pls visit my blog for some pics:

From what you describe, most probably it's your headlamp switch. The problem with the design of the W202 headlamp switch is that they uses too much spring mechanism which will give out in time. Best bet?Change your headlamp switch.Prices range in KL is about 165-185 brand new! Anything more than that would a lil pricey!
Hope this help!

The switch is the same for both W124 & W202, Check Keras jaya or Proauto for prices, it should be less that RM200. chop shop prices vary RM120-RM150. I noticed that the old switche from my 1990 W124 era switches last longer and the turns feel more solid that my 1995 W124.
