The drivers side rear brake light is off, the bulb is
perfect, can't figure out how to correct this issue.
Can you help?
I was told by MB certified shop after a $130 diagonsis, to have the brake housing unit circuit sensor replaced $647 which I did not do. Instead a mechanic replaced the tail light socket $15 part, labor $130 and it's still working.
I've had the ESP and "light bulb"
Icon come on numerous times.
My dealership insists that my car had the recall work done for this problem. I have no memory or record of that work being done.
I've taken my car in on four separate occasions. They've replaced the brake light switch, the brake lights and the brake light housings. The problem persists. They can't find anything wrong but I still have the same problem. They've had my car in their shop for a total of six plus weeks. I've paid thousands of dollars to repair the issue. They can't find the problem. What should I do? The car has been garage kept has under 60,000 miles. Please help. Thank you
