I do have one more question. I have a 2003 C240 I have over 100K on it. The car tells me that the lights are burnt out, but when I check the lights they are not burnt out this is all on the passenger side. It is the turn signals, brake light, and tail light. Any ideas? Thanks

The instrument cluster should tell you exactly which bulb is burnt out. You may not be finding it though, cause your car uses bulb substitution.

Turn signals

Thank You for your reply. I did remove every light in the pass. rear and front lights they are all good. Sometimes it works but most of the time it does not.

It's common for the contacts on the front turn signal sockets to burn up, causing it to not work, though the bulb is still good. There's updated turn signal sockets that can be installed, but it requires unpinning the headlight connector and installing into a new harness, and installing a ground. This may part of your problem if your front turn signal isn't working.
