This is an electrical issue that needs to be looked at by someone with the proper tools, equipment and knowledge to diagnose an electrical problem on a Mercedes, so I advise taking it to a Mercedes shop: http://repairpal.com/directory?address=29945&car_brand_names=Mercedes-Benz

dont know but mine went out a few months ago. there has been a lot of recalls on this and it was covered at the dealership.

2002 S430 had a recall on the instrument assembly becuase of the back light would fail. This could be unrelated but if it turns out to be the assembly it should be replaced free of charge. I believe the recall is good for 10 years so it should still be covered.
