Hmm, does your panel look like my picture up above in post #64?

No mine looks different to that, you don't seem to have a little access door which I have. I may be wrong here but i seem to recall seeing something on here a few days ago about somebody having some service work done and the dealer added a fuse box door? Might be wrong

I wonder why some cars don't have the removable door on them? Bit of a strange one!

I would bet a cost optimization effort, by someone who didn't consider the "replace a fuse on the side of the road" use case.

I really like the illuminated star on my 2017 C300 sport sedan.

Looks really nice.

Did you get that installed from the factory? If not, it is OEM or aftermarket?

I"m having a huge issue with the wiring for the star. I was given the wire package A205 820 43 00

which has this damn extra wire that I know I'm supposed to connect to the computer somewhere?


Anyone can help me locate the position?

Interior CAN, connect it to the CAN hub in the lower footwell, under the carpet, connecto to any position in the hub.

Is the CAN in the driver's side or the passenger side foot well? Or in the centre?

W205
I got the Star fitted on the dealearship with the following past numbers:

A 205 820 15 01 small wire for fuse box
A 2005 900 16 14 Control Unit
A 205 820 43 00 Harness
A 166 817 75 00 Illuminated star

The control module is not always on and we get our cars Eurospecd (no side markers).
Anyone knows if there is a way to get the controlles to be Always on? Or fit the US controller? Or maybe mod to Gen 2 specs?

2017 C300
I was told my car already had the control unit for the illuminated star by the dealer. Than the quoted me 812 to supply and install. Part numbers were 166-817-75-00(star) and 205-820-44-00(wiring harness). They were unable to tell me what functions the star would have?. They told me I was lucky to have control module being that they want 400 for that. I have 2017 c300 sedan. Not sure if anyone else has info on how this setup functions on this vehicle?
