Switch for lights high and low beam

80

Asked by Oct 24, 2013 at 12:38 AM about the 2000 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 280 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Click for high beam won't stay on high goes back to low, only way to keep high beam on is to hold switch in forward position, it also controls the blinkers, I kinda turned on blinker and high beam almost same time and that's when the high wouldn't stay on without holding it.

Since the stalk won't stay forward as it should the mechanical part of the multifunction swith is proably bad.. Pull the steering wheel off to get to the combination switch. Search around and you will find at least one good video on how to do it. You will need a torx 30 long screw driver, not socket, and a 10 mm allen wrench scket plus torque wrench to put it back. wiyh the correct tools it is not difficult once you see the video..

It always is a good thing to check the fuses first. and the bulbs before buying a new switch.

Joelas, if the stalk has lost its click it won't find it in the fusebox. God damn I'm starting to sound like judge Roy lol

you are right, he wont find the clic in the fuse box, but he might find another related problem. I always check the easy things first,

Same ptoblem-also I called m- brace to ask how to lower shade(on highway) & they refused unless I gave credit card(2 mo old $118k S class)-first mb 1984 !-nickle & dime'd every one )
