W202- Headlight switch replacement - by tigerkun
Just to share with u, especially with W202 owners. After I bought Haynes Service And Repair Manual last week, I did my first DIY to repair my headlights. My headlights were not working and according to the mechanics, they suspected the switch was not working properly or defective. The other lights...small lightss, fog lights are all working.

It was supposed to be easy task but being a first timer on Merc, things can get complicated. Thanks to the manual which shows step-by-step photos how to do it.

To cut things short, I hv succesfully replaced the switch with a new one which I bought at Keras Jaya Auto Parts, Taman Maluri for RM168. Other shop in Sg Chua quoted RM280. Luckily i did called many shops....thanks again to MyBenz Directory.

I do not know how much money i have saved but one thing for sure i am now a happier man. My headlamps are all working now and the most important...i did it myself.

 Light Switch or SAM Module Problem ?
Hi there,

Any of you having intermittent problem with your W204 where both the front dim light (right side only) and back red light (also right side only) ON when you pull out your car key (after you turn the light switch to position 0) at night ?

To rectify this problem, what I normally did is to just turn the light switch to Auto/ON and immediately back to position 0, both the lights will be off then.

I've sent my car to Hap Seng for checking but they could not find what is the actual problem. Initially, they asked me to change all the front/back bulbs (8 pcs in total) but the problem still there.

What is the actual problem here ? Light switch problem, SAM problem or other electronics problem ?
