    Hi guys, sorry if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find anything anywhere.

    New year and the car issues have started. I've got a 2006 CL203 C180K, lately I've been having intermittent warnings on the dash saying, parking light on the right side isn't working, then it will work again. Just before Christmas both the headlight and mainbeam bulb failed. So ordered all new ones Bosch 90s for main beam and osram night breakers for dipped

    All working well.... But the sidelights had then failed, it was dark and I thought I would leave it till the next day but with work and the rain lately I haven't had chance to have a look.

    Checked it Saturday and all the lights are working perfectly, so I pulled out the sidelights checked them and connections and put them back nice and tight, both working, moved the car and low and behold right hand sidelight not working, went and got petrol and they're all working again.

    The left hand headlight is quite wet inside so when the weather dries out I'll be taking the headlights out and checking the seals and sorting that out, but worse was to come.....

    Started it Sunday night and the cluster display was blurry and very slow to react, I left the car alone and yesterday after work I thought I'd check the battery earth and voltage, start the car and it's all working normally bulbs and dash. Earth and voltage was all good too.

    My question to you guys is..... Are these 2 linked in anyway or is it just a coincidence?

    Anyone else had the same issue with the display? I know pre facelift suffer with the problem badly.

    Could it be dodgy earths due to the rain?

    Thanks for any help/input guys

    Was also meant to mention the display is showing the wrong time but only by 10 or so minutes

    Slight update, I removed the earth from the battery left if off for a while cleaned a few earths in the engine bay..... The ones I could see about 4/5.

    Set the car up as normal but the time is still wrong, left it over night but nothing's changed so I located the instrument cluster fuse removed it checked it and replaced it. Time is still wrong.

    Does anyone know what I can do, as mine changes time by itself, I have no option for changing the time in the menu, I have the audio 20 if it's relevant.

    My only other option is to pull the fuse and replace it at midday.
