Been having all sorts of electrical issues with my dad's old Merc, here are just some of them:
* Smoke came out from centre console a few months ago, found the switches for the electric windows and mirrors melted. Managed to find a 2nd hand console replacement from eBay, but side mirrors still not working.
* Battery keeps going flat if not driven for more than 1 day. I have recently replaced it with a new one as well.
* Interior lights stay permanently on, even while driving and yup, I have checked the on/off buttons.
I wish I could afford to change the car, but can't. Do you reckon it will cost a bit to get some one to look at the whole electrics? My worst fear is that the garage will fix the problems I report, but other problems will pop up and cost me more.
