Mercedes electrical problems AGAIN.

so after the battery replacement,Now the car lit up like a christmas tree and wont shift out of park so i decided to do something. The wipers were going off for no reason and i decided to take the fuse out. AND it works normal again. I put the fuse back some to the old things. DAMN Currently im driving without it and its all good. What you guys think this fuse problems?

just check the forecast before you drive and should be okay as long as you avoid rain

Well it's random that the fuse is causing the problem. Have you been keeping anything plugged in while the car is turned off that might be draining the battery?

sounds pretty crappy man. Maybe take the ***** in to a good indie mechanic and have them diagnose it and go from there. Honestly maybe disconnect and reconnect the battery and see if that system reboot sorts it. Electrical problems are the worst to track down.

Why was the battery replaced?
Did these problems happen after the battery was replaced?

Battery was replaced due to random electrical glitches

What year and model is your Mercedes.
I had a C350 and had electrical problems too. Windows went up and down randomly, lights came on and off as did the wipers, radio went off then on again.
Turns out that the wires run under the carpet on the floor right under your feet. If there was any moisture getting into the wires, weird things happen. My car was under warranty and they replaced and repositioned the wire loom and all was well.

Too many systems affected to be one fuse.
Besides, the OP has not identified what model he has and the fuse boxes are in different locations on different models.

OP has a 2012 E350 I believe. And I agree that broken/damp wires in the wiring loom can cause random errors. I had to replace my boot wiring harness awhile back for the same issue (broken wire causing trunk to not open/open at random occasions).

Or stick a very large umbrella out the sunroof.
