Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I just got 99 C280 Sport Package (W202), I have a problem with my Automatic Climate Control, does it has a bulb light? when i turn the lights ON, the device is still dark, do I have to change the device or just replace the bulb?

thx...

Replace the bulb to solve this problem. Requires removing the control unit with DIN puller tool, and only Mercedes has the light bulb. If you don't mind a slightly dim display, any 1.5 watt instrument cluster bulb will plug into the socket, but the bright bulb is M-B dealer only. They burn out regularly, probably too high wattage for the application.
