1985 300sd turn signals

My turn signals quit working in my 300sd. The emergency (hazard) Lights still operate fine. Any common problems, suggestions?

Cycle your hazards on/off a few times. Sometimes the hazard relay sticks causing the blinkers to cease operation.

How do I get a badge Mike?

Greetings Mike,

I see your 250,000KM badge on your post. Just wondering what the procedure is a person has to do to get one of those beauties?

Charles

Can-Do,

Seems I'm answering that question a lot since changing my signature picture . Simple process, call 1-800-FOR-MERC and request an award application. They'll send it, you fill it out and return to MBNA, in 3-4 weeks you'll have your badge. Badges come in mileage intervals: 250K, 500K and 1,000,000 (all kilometers). That breaks down to roughly 155K, 312K 600&someK miles.

Looking at your list of Benzes, you'll need two apps if you still have the three. You can only do two cars per application.

I think Larry Bible posted a picture of his 500K km badge in one of the picture threads - the one where he finally posted a pic of Ol' Silver (maybe).

Yeah, I guess I'll need a couple

Thanks Mike for the info, I appreciate it. I think the badge would be a welcomed addition to the grill even though I didn't personally put all the miles on it. Hopefully most of the next badge will be all my miles and more of a personal accomplishment.
