Mrrcedes a class a150 55 plate, after the battery / fuse box

Customer Question

Mrrcedes a class a150 55 plate, after the battery / fuse box bay got flooded due to the pollen filter box getting blocked I now have a problem where the side lights fog lights and parking light do not work, the head lights work on dipped and high beam and the sidelights bulbs are on when the head lights are on, just to clarify the side lights don't work on the side light position on the switch and the fog lights don't work at all. Could this be an issue with the switch or the fuse box.

Stan :

All of the lights are controlled by the front SAM module. It is located behind the glovebox on the firewall. Possibly it got damaged by the flooding. It is worth a try to remove and disassemble it to re-sloder all of the connections.

Stan :

if this does not help, i recommend to check it's condition with Star Diagnosis computer and replace the SAM if it is confirmed to be faulty
