This happened on my W140 and it needed a new stalk. Don't remember how much it was as it was in with other stuff, but im thinking somewhere around 80 quid..GregE240 said:Any ideas, anyone?
Its a 1990 500SL (R129).
I'm guessing new column stalk needed? Any idea how much?
Main beam does Jason, yes.fuzzer said:does it come on if you push forward?

All other functions work....wiper speeds, indicators and main beam, only the flash doesn't work.
I'd wondered why people weren't pulling out in front of me when I flashed them.....that'll be why....!
No, doesn't work at all. Tried all combos - lights off / on, IGN on / off. According to the DC online price list, the new stalk is 80 Euros, so not that bad.fuzzer said:maybe thats a cheap workaround rather than the hundreds of pounds for a new one to just flip it forward or something
hmm , never thought about it till now .. but does that work with the lights in the off position ?
I think when mine broke, it must have been a bad contact or something. I sat there one day and tried it hundreds of times (must have been a bit bored that day), and eventually, I got a flash out of it! Just the one tho!GregE240 said:No, doesn't work at all.
