Hello, 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. Nola

My Mercedes, 1999 E320 keeps air condition running when I turn off the car fan,even if I remove the key.
I turn off the car and take the key out and still the air condition fan keeps running.
bought a kit from the internet took the display apart overall took 2 hours of my time for the instrument cluster + 2 hours of various searches. Purchasers of second hand w210 /e320 should be very careful as the instrument cluster replacement will reset mileage shown on vehicle
