Look up the fuse assignment and relays for the S and CL Class. If you find a blown fuse, replace it with the same color. The S and CL class use the fuse types shown here.If you need the right fuses type for your Mercedes , you can order a box of 120 fuses for less than $10 on Amazon, see link here.

In the S CL class, these fuses are located in the following places:

Fuses 1 though 27, Relays A B C D E F G H I J : are in the engine compartment left side / driver side. Open the hood and look next to the hood hinge on thedrivers side. Remove the black plastic cover and you will see these fuses.

Fuses in the engine compartment of W220

Fuses 28 through 49, Relays O N M L K are in the engine compartment on the right / passenger side. Open the hood and look for the black plastic cover right next to the hood hinge on the passenger side. 


Fuses 50 to 77, Relays Q R S T U: are located in the fuse and relay box under the rear seat on the passenger side. Remove the rear seat and you will see these fuses and relays. 



Here is the list of the fuses on your S / CL Class. As I mentioned above some of the slots may be empty. Your car will not have every single fuse in this list.

The S and CL Class have always been Mercedes-Benz flagship vehicles. They always have had the most advanced technologies on them at the time of production and the W220 was no different. They have so many electronics that it is impossible for fuses to blow. Keep in mind that under normal operation of a certain circuit the fuse wouldn’t blow. So if you find a blown fuse and it blows again shortly after you replace it then you should look for an underlying problem to the corresponding circuit. We have provided the list below which should cover all 2000-2006 CL and S Classes. If you find any discrepancies please leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

The best way to test fuses is to remove them and do a visual inspection. You will see a broken wire between the two terminals if it blown.
