    Hello, new member with a recently purchased 2006 C180 sport edition with a 69000 miles on the clock. I have one problem that I'm struggling to resolve and hopefully someone can help point me in the right direction. On the control panel at the top of the centre console, the hazard warning switch, the ESP switch, the door lock and door open switches have stopped working. The two buttons for the alarm system (car with hook and interior sensor I think) appear to be working. I have checked
    fuse 41 which I believe to be the correct fuse, but that is OK. I have also been able to try with an alternative panel but the same problem persists, so I am ruling out that. Could it be a SAM problem or is there something else that could be causing this. I can live without the door lock / open function, but need to get the ESP & Hazard switches working !
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Has it ever worked in your ownership? If I remember correctly there is a vacant plug socket on the back, and it is possible to put one of the plugs into that socket by mistake and create something similar to what you describe.

    Hi and thanks for replying. Yes it worked when I first had the car. There are two vacant sockets on the back of the unit, but the plug is shaped such that it will only fit into one.

    I had my Clk OCP replaced by MB under warranty a few years ago , I do remember the tech saying the OCP had to be "coded" to the car using STAR . Not sure how true that is but it may help ?

    Thanks Wighty, is it possible the coding of the original panel could become corrupt ?
