Mercedes-Benz E Class  W212

If you replace any fuses, replace them with the same color fuse. If there is an underlying problem, you could overload the wires or even cause more severe problems to that circuit if you use a higher ampere fuse. Ensure the new fuse you are installing has the same color and ampere rating as the old one. If you install a new fuse at it blows soon after you install it, you could have a short or a problem with that circuit, and you need to get it diagnosed. When you replace fuses, make sure your ignition is off.

You can get a lot of fuses for cheap on Amazon, like these, here. Make sure to replace the fuses with the correct color and ampere rating.

  1. Hello l’m Reggie, Thank for the excellent job you’re doing. I have a question 2009 mercedes benz e350 the there is information for 2009 e350. my navigation show off road and the time also wrong. Thanks.

  2. Good day team.am in Africa and I own a mercedez E350 v6 2007 model WDB2110562A930698 and engine no 27296430288737, the problem my fuse box in the trunk got burned down together with the radio transmitter box .how much would that maybe cost me?

  3. I have a problem with the passenger seat back on E350 Cab. It will only come up so far and doesn’t come forward to fully upright as the drivers one does.
    I wouldn’t have thought it was a fuse problem but could it be? i.e. Are there two fuses for the seat back adjustment and one of them is ok ?

    • Typically there is only one fuse for all the seat functions. This sounds more like a seat motor issue. There are several motors in the seat and one of them may have stopped working.

  4. 2006 E350 is the secondary air injector relay the one directly behind the 40 amp fuse? Thanks
