    hello,

    yes the car starts fine the radio works.

    there are no heater controls and nothing onthe dash but the battery light does come on.

    I did have a new battery put on it earlier on in the year

    Thanks

    This could be the ignition switch has failed rather than the instrument cluster.

    You will have to get the car on STAR to see what is wrong, do you have a good indie near where you live

    An indie is an independent Mercedes engineer that will have the STAR test set.

    If you go to top right of your screen you will see the Mercedes specialist finder, you can use that to find someone or maybe we can recommend one.
