I finally did what I should have done at first.
I jumped a 12 volts wire directly at the start of the connection on the panel.
All lower lights came on just fine.

It may be I have 2 problems now.
First, no current from the Freightliner to the rear light panel. Probably a blown fuse but I have no idea which one and the owner manual is no help. Will phone Mercedes-Benz tomorrow.
Secundo: It does look like a short for the upper light but have no idea how to run a new wire, this will probably end at the RV repair shop.

Looking for parking light fuse, Solera

Hi Guys,

To continue on my running light problem...

I have a Sprinter 3500 2010 and I'm trying to locate the fuse for the rear parking lights. The owner manual is no help.

The Sprinter was an incomplete vehicule sent to Forest River for completion.

I'm sure there is a fuse somewhere but God only knows where !

i would think the problem would be at either end of the wire and not the wire itself.
on my older trailer, they strung the running lights from one to the other. the wire was pulled up into a connector that would cut into it for connection. that would also be the end of the wire. in an adjacent slot, they would run a wire to the next light and so on. check the wiring at each light for good contact. u may be able to use a volt meter and see where the loss is happening. i would start at the first place i could get a check on the trailer side of the plug. if u aren't getting it there, u aren't getting it thru the plug at the vehicle.
with low voltage, it sounds like a poor connection somewhere rather than a short. splices are notorious for creating this kind of problem.

Hi JimH,

That is exactly what I did and I already found the wire problem which is fixed now.
The other problem I have now is to find the fuse location to change it !

If I remember correctly this unit is a tt. And there will be no fuse on the tt. It is all run from your tow vehicle.

i took it as a travel trailer as well but i believe it is a motor home pulling a trailer.
sounds like he has his work cut out for him.

Not a tt, it is a Solera, a motorhome mounted on a Freightliner chassis. Nothing unusual. Just need a wiring diagram for s 2010 Sprinter !

Running lights

I don't know if this will help or not but it's worth a try. Beginning on page 272 of the Freightliner Sprinter Operator Manual is the section on fuses. There are 3 fuse blucks, one under the steering wheel, one in the battery compartment and one under the driver's seat next to the door. The block under the driver's seat may have the fuses that provide power to the wiring harness for the trailer.

I am finding lots of good information in the owner's manual (wish I had started looking there earlier). Of course, it is no help for the wiring in the living quarters that I know of....
