Mercedes-Benz E320 Problem
Average Mileage: 104,434 mi (35,000 mi - 213,000 mi)
I have the same problem. I had the instrument panel replaced a couple of years ago along with having to pay for a new key related to Mercedes resetting the mileage and labor. The display is fading on the mileage, clock, and etc. Horizontal lights flash across the middle of the screen at times.
I am a girl who needs help with this problem.
