    Hi, I have a 96 E320 and for some reason the number 5 fuse under the rear seat turns on the right side fog lamp and the smaller light beside the headlight. When I plug the fuse in I can hear a relay or something clicking in the box next to it..,might be ignition related.

    Anyway, while the fuse is in the 2 lights stay on all the time, even when the key is removed from the car. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi, I am new to this , but sounds to me (unsure as I am not in front of the car) that you have a short , and due to that the fuse is not blowing to me sounds like the EARTH leak , this could be from the light itself , the light switch, the relay or any of the negative wiring touching . best to trace from the light back , would be a start.
