The dash lights and trunk light on my 2000 clk 430 flash on and off when I turn the ignition off. Turning on headlights stops this.

Asked by Oct 06, 2016 at 12:34 PM about the 2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK 430 Cabriolet

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn my car off the dash lights and trunk light cycle on and off. I can
hear something clicking. If I turn on the parking lights it will stop. If I turn the
lights off it starts again. Nothing else will work while this is happening. I have
to disconnect the battery to get it to stop. Does anyone know about this or if
there is a solenoid or relay that may be bad?

Do you have a new aftermarket alarm system or radio recently installed?

No. There are no aftermarket items, alarm, radio, etc. installed on this car

make sure that the fuse box is not wet somehow and is creating some short. Or it could be a faulty ignition switch or just a bad alternator.

None of the fuse boxes are wet. Ignition works fine when the battery is reconnected and alternator charges fine.
