Hi - my problems with my reversing lights on my 1998 E300 Estate continue. The reversing light switch is working fine but, when the lights fail, there is absolutely no power on the live terminal of the light arrays at the rear of the car. I have checked the cables back as far as I can but have found nothing amiss.

Is there a relay that powers the reversing lights and the mirror - if so, I would imagine that it was activated by the reversing light switch output. Does anyone know if the relay exists and if it does where it is located in the car.

In hope
