Hello all,

The 3rd brake light on my newly acquired W140 is not working.

On inspection the old bulb was blown and so was replaced today - but its still not illuminating.....

Ive had a quick look in the engine bay fuse box, but couldnt spot the fuse responsible for the 3rd light.

Can anyone shed any light on the matter? haw-haw

Thanks

I could be wrong but I think it all the brake lights use the same fuse. Have you tested to see if power is getting to it? Or it might have a bad earth conection?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Ive actually managed to solve it :) The bulb holder in the light fitting itself needed a bit of tinkering - now fixed and have 3 brake lights :)
